[1] The Windsor Fratmen are a Canadian football team based in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. The team has played in the Canadian Junior Football League since the 1940s and won national titles in 1952, 1954, and 1999. The Fratmen are also the first Canadian Junior Football League team to be honoured in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum's locker room exhibit.[2]

The Fratmen played at Fratmen Field at Windsor Stadium from 1953 to 2014. Since then the team has played home games at Ecole E.J. Lajeunesse and currently plays at Alumni Field at the University of Windsor.[3] On May 14, 2014, St Clair College and the Fratmen announced a partnership which will help college bound students the opportunity to play in the CJFL. The Fratmen hope to call St Clair College their home field pending a planned domed stadium being built on the Windsor Campus. The team was sponsored by the AKO Fraternity and dates back to 1929, making it the longest-running community organization providing a junior football program in Canada without interruption. The AKO Fraternity is a different group. It is a non-profit, fraternal organization dedicated to supporting and sponsoring youth in amateur sports. [2][4] On January 22, 2014, AKO Fraternity announced it had sold the Team to Mike Morencie, a former player, Head Coach and current Defensive Coordinator.
