The McGill Redmen are the men's athletic teams that represent McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The women's teams are known as the McGill Martlets. The name Redmen was first published in 1929 as "Red Men" and was used to describe the red uniforms worn by McGill sports teams. Research done by McGill historian Dr. Stanley Frost indicated that the name Redmen derived from ancient times, when Celts were known as the "Red Men" because of their red hair... "our own Red Men were no doubt Celts in honour of James McGill's Scottish descent," notes Frost.

Men's Soccer[edit]

The soccer program at McGill operates throughout the entire school year. In addition to the regular CIS fall season, the Redmen also compete in the QSSF indoor season running from January to mid March. Preparation for the CIS season begins with exhibition games during the month of August in the United States. Previous exhibition opponents include Syracuse University, Harvard University, Cornell University, Brown University and Fairfield University.[1]

McGill finished with an 11-3-5 record overall in Fall 2008, including a 7-1-4 mark in league play. The loss to Laval in the semifinals of the QSSF put a sudden end to McGill’s most successful campaign in eight years, since finishing first in the 2000 season with a 6-0-4 mark…. Aside from James Scholefield, 2nd team All- Canadian, other expected losses to graduation include goaltender Olivier Boulva (2nd team All-Conference), defender Omar John, midfielder Shawn Amarasekera and forward Gareth Pugh.
