The Montreal AAA Winged Wheelers were a Canadian football team and a member of the Interprovincial Rugby Football Union, a league that preceded the Canadian Football League. The team existed from 1919 to 1935. It was likely that the Montreal AAA was associated with the Montreal Foot Ball Club, founded in 1872. The Montreal Foot Ball Club joined the Quebec Rugby Football Union in 1883 and used the AAA grounds to play its games.[3] The AAA Winged Wheelers started in the IRFU in 1919, after the Montreal Foot Ball Club had been folded due to World War One in 1915.

The team won the 1931 Grey Cup championship.
