The 107th Grey Cup game will be played November 24, 2019 at McMahon Stadium in Calgary, Alberta.

The 108th Grey Cup game will be played Sunday, November 22, 2020 at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The 109th Grey Cup will be played at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton, Ontario on November 21, 2021.

The Grey Cup, traditionally played on the last Sunday in November, will be played on the second-last Sunday in November starting in 2020, the result of the CFL moving its season up.

I like the move by the CFL starting earlier (2020). Better weather, better chance for bigger gates, and better games (players not sliding around and having footwear issues).

Best $17,975 ever spent:)

And there is no salary cap in the CFL.

I was kinda hoping 2020 would go to Hamilton with 2021 going to Riders.

Too many in a row in the West IMO.

Nice to see Hamilton get to host for the first time since 1996. I know the Rider fans are going to dump on my for saying this but Regina shouldn't get to host for awhile. The city lacks the hotels required and other infrastructure.

I agree with you but apparently Saskatchewan had the better bid.

It will be very different than last time.  First, there is an additional 1,000 new hotel rooms in Regina compared to 2013.  I think that will be sufficient.  Uber and Lyft is here now too...so that will alleviate some of the transportation issues.  Also new, besides the stadium of course, is the International Trade Centre to complete the Evraz Eventplex.  All football events will be within walking of the stadium.  That will allow for even better parties before/after game...not to mention every team party room being withing the same monster complex with no need to go outside.

Check it out...that is going to be ALL GREY CUP everywhere on that map! https://www.evrazplace.com/facilities/interactive-facilities-map

I'm really happy for both cities/clubs.  If you build a new stadium, you deserve a GC within 5 years.  That's sort of the unwritten rule.  Gives clubs an incentive to build new digs (hello, CGY, I'm looking at you!).

I hope I have to fly to CGY, SSK, HAM in that order to watch my Bombers fight in the next GC's!  Oh, to beat out SSK in a '20 WF to play the GC in Regina... pure gold that will be.  Even better if we are in the GC against MTL...

You forgot to mention the Pasqua Hospital which is situated immediately to the north of the Trade Center for those that indulge too much. Roll Eyes

Agreed on the five-year thing. But Calgary is hosting this year, so I'm not sure if it's really incentive. Although, this could be the last time it hosts a championship game at McMahon Stadium... Or it should be, anyway.

Uber and Lyft is here now too...

Which is awesome. I still can't believe Winnipeg has neither. What a joke.

Don't blame Walters for lack of Uber or Lyft in Winnipeg!
