The 2015 Calgary Stampeders season was the 58th season for the team in the Canadian Football League and their 81st overall. The Stampeders finished in second place in the West Division with a 14-4 record in John Hufnagel's last year as head coach before he hands over the reins to offensive coordinator Dave Dickenson in 2016.

With Ottawa's defeat of Montreal on October 1st, Calgary qualified for the playoffs for the 11th straight season.[1] The Stampeders gained home field advantage in the 2015 West Division playoffs with their Week 15 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, in the team's first visit to Tim Hortons Field.[2] The Stampeders defeated the BC Lions in the West Semi-Final, but lost to the Edmonton Eskimos in the West Final game and failed to defend their Grey Cup title.
