The Grey Cup.

The Grey Cup is the championship of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the trophy awarded to the victorious team. The trophy is named after Albert Grey, the Governor General of Canada from 1904 until 1911. He donated the trophy to the Canadian Rugby Union in 1909 to recognize the top amateur rugby football team in Canada. By this time Canadian football had become markedly different from the rugby football from which it developed. Although it was originally intended to be awarded only to amateur teams (like the Stanley Cup), over time, the Grey Cup became the property of the Canadian Football League as it evolved into a professional football league. Amateur teams ceased competing for the Cup by 1954; since 1965, the top amateur teams, playing in Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS), have competed for the Vanier Cup.[1]

The Grey Cup game is Canada's largest annual sports and television event, regularly drawing a Canadian viewing audience of about 4 million.[2][3] Two awards are given for play in the game, Most Valuable Player and the Dick Suderman Trophy as most valuable Canadian player.[4]

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have made the most appearances (24), while the Toronto Argonauts have won the most championships (16). The game has never been held outside of Canada, but the American-based Baltimore Stallions appeared in it twice, winning once. Although the first Grey Cup game was in 1909, there were none from 1916 to 1919, so the 2012 Grey Cup was the 100th.[5] The 102nd Grey Cup was played on November 30, 2014, at BC Place in Vancouver. The Calgary Stampeders defeated the Hamilton Tiger Cats 20–16 to win their seventh championship.[6]

Win/Loss records[edit]

Although the official website of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats counts them as the same team,[12] the Tiger-Cats, Hamilton Alerts, Hamilton Tigers and Hamilton Flying Wildcats are all listed separately because, when the latter three were active, the teams competed as separate franchises. The Tigers and Flying Wildcats merged in 1950 to create the Tiger-Cats.[13]
