Notes[edit]

Some of the stadiums on this list have been temporarily expanded to larger capacities in the past via temporary seating. Griffiths Stadium located on the grounds of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan hosted the 2006 Vanier Cup with a sellout of 12,567 fans, with temporary seating added for the event. SMU's Huskies stadium was expanded to what is believed to be its seating maximum 11,000 for a CFL game and Victoria's Royal Athletic Park had plans to seat just under 15,000 for a soccer tournament a few years back (some of the temporary seating was not installed however, so the largest seated capacity at that field for that event was just over 10,000).

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats will play at an expanded Varsity Stadium in Guelph in 2013. Temporary capacity will be between 15,000 and 16,000.
