Canadian Football News in 1935[edit]

The Winnipegs (soon to be known as the Blue Bombers in 1936) became the first Western Canadian team to win the Grey Cup by defeating the Hamilton Tigers, 18–12, in Hamilton.

The Calgary franchise became known as the "Bronks".

The Canadian Intercollegiate Rugby Football Union returns to play for the Grey Cup for one more season.

The Winnipeg Victoria Rugby Club reformed on February 22, 1935. The nucleus of the team would be made up of players who played the 1934 season for the Deer Lodge junior team.
