Description

The biggest single sports and television event in Canada marks its 100th championship in 2012.

The Terrible Tripper of 1957, the 1962 Fog Bowl, Vic Washington’s Fabulous Fumble in 1968, Tony Gabriel’s Classic Catch in 1976, Henry "Gizmo" Williams’s Wild Run in 1987, and Dave Ridgway’s Magnificent Kick in 1989 are some of the legendary moments leading up to the 100th Grey Cup game in November 2012 in Toronto. You’ll find all of them in Grey Cup Century and much more.

Canadian football has had a long and storied history dating back to the 1860s. In 1909, Earl Grey, the governor general of Canada, donated a trophy to honour the best amateur rugby football club in the country. The first team to win a Grey Cup was the University of Toronto Varsity Blues.

In 1954 the Canadian Football League, a professional organization, took over sole control of the Cup. Since then gridiron giants such as Sam Etcheverry, Norm Kwong, Jackie Parker, Russ Jackson, Ron Lancaster, Lui Passaglia, Doug Flutie, and Michael "Pinball" Clemons have dazzled fans in an annual championship that now attracts as many as six million television viewers.
