The Metro Bowl has traditionally been the championship game for Secondary School football teams in the Greater Toronto Area from 1982 until 2012. The game was revived by the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations beginning in 2015 as one of a series of nine regionally-themed bowl games held as part of an annual Ontario football bowl game festival since 2015. Rather than a strictly-Toronto area championship, the Metro Bowl is now held between one of either the Toronto District College Athletic Association (TDCAA) representig Catholic schools or the Toronto District Secondary School Athletic Association (TDSSAA) representing public schools, alternating each year, against another Ontario association's champion determined by draw. The Toronto association not playing in the Metro Bowl in a particular year will instead play in one of the other bowl games.[1]

The game has been held annually during the later part of November or early December at a venue in or in close proximity to the City of Toronto.

Schools with multiple titles are: St. Michael's College School, Toronto (7); Central Technical School, Toronto 2; Nelson High School (Burlington), Burlington (2); Northern Secondary School (Toronto) (2); Richview Collegiate Institute, Toronto (2); St. Patrick's Catholic High School, Sarnia (2) Woburn Collegiate Institute, Toronto (2)
