It’s been around since 1909, when Governor General Earl Grey the Grey Cup to the winner of the amateur rugby football championship of Canada – the University of Toronto whose team defeated Toronto Parkdale 26-6 on Rosedale Field on December 4.
Since that epic day, the Grey Cup has been won by BC, Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton, Montreal, Saskatchewan, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Ottawa and during the league’s US expansion, by Baltimore. In fact, every current CFL team has celebrated a Grey Cup win, though Toronto and Hamilton top the charts with most Grey Cup victories at 15.
The 100th Grey Cup will take place on November 25 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario but in advance of the big day, the Cup itself has been on tour. This week, it came to St. Catharines and NaturallyinNiagara.ca was on hand for the big moment.
