Winnipeg will host the Grey Cup in 2025.
The CFL made the announcement this morning.
“As a proud Winnipegger, I’m absolutely elated to announce the return of the Grey Cup to my hometown,” CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said. “I’m thrilled for the city, the entire province of Manitoba and, of course, for all of our incredible fans across the country.
“Hosting the Grey Cup is a tremendous honour, and I was blown away by the Blue Bombers’ plans to engage the community and put on an unforgettable celebration of our great game. I can’t wait to see it all unfold.”
The announcement comes after the CFL awarded the 2024 Grey Cup game to Vancouver. Both the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and B.C. Lions had bid to host that contest.
The 2023 Grey Cup will be held Nov. 19 at Tim Hortons Field, the 12th time the contest will be played in Hamilton.
This is the fifth time Winnipeg has been chosen to host the Canadian Football League’s championship game.
The last time was in 2015.
