Guide to Grey Cup Week - Full Event Schedule

Guide to Grey Cup Week – Full Event Schedule

Last weekend the CFL held its Eastern and Western finals to determine who would play in the 108th Grey Cup on December 12th.

In the first matchup of the afternoon we saw the Hamilton Tiger-Cats fight back to defeat the Toronto Argonauts. With this win not only did they punch their ticket to the Grey Cup, they also secured home field advantage.

The late game had the Winnipeg Blue Bombers edging out the Saskatchewan Roughriders to earn their spot in the Championship game.

With the conference finals in the books all eyes are on Hamilton, Ontario; where the city will be hosting events all week in the lead up to the Grey Cup.
