The Alouettes congratulate the Roughriders and the Tiger-Cats

Regina and Hamilton respectively selected as host cities for the 2020 and 2021 Grey Cup editions

The Montreal Alouettes wish to congratulate the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on being respectively selected as host cities for the 2020 and 2021 Grey Cup editions. The Canadian Football League (CFL) made this announcement Thursday evening on TSN.

“We presented a very solid bid that highlights the strengths and personality of our great city. I could not be more proud of the team that worked countless hours on the Alouettes’ proposal to host the Grey Cup in Montreal,” said Alouettes President and CEO Patrick Boivin. “We knew that going up against Regina was going to be a considerable challenge and as for 2021, it simply was not an option for us, as renovation work at Olympic Stadium will very likely be starting around Grey Cup time that year.”

“I would like to thank our main partners for their valuable collaboration and input on the Alouettes‘ bid: Tourisme Montréal, Evenko, la Régie des installations olympiques, the City of Montreal and the Government of Quebec”, added Boivin.

“The CFL thanks the Montreal Alouettes and all of their partners for their first class bid,” said CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie. “The competition for 2020 was very tough and 2021 was not a possibility for Montreal with the work scheduled to take place at Olympic Stadium. Grey Cups in Montreal are very popular with our fans and we certainly look forward to returning the Grey Cup there in the future.”
