The Grey Cup is going North in 2020!

TORONTO – The Canadian Football League is excited to announce that plans are officially underway to take the Grey Cup where it has never gone before.

After years of planning, excavation and business case analysis, the 108th Grey Cup will be played at its most Northern point in history, a secret Arctic location.

It is important to bring the league to all Canadians and after careful deliberation, the league is thrilled that we are taking the big game where it has never been to kick off the roaring 20’s.

While the league is aware that the weather and sunlight could be a factor for viewing and broadcast, plans are already underway to light the area due to the scheduled 2:01pm sunset time for November 29, 2020. The league feels the 5 hours and 18 minutes of sunlight that day will be sufficient for set up and stadium preparations.

In addition, with the support of our partners, a full stadium will be installed and airlifted in via helicopter to ensure max capacity of over 50,000 for the big game, the first in Arctic history (rendering above).

  1. Hey, CFL fans! The league wants it kept secret, but they gave away just enough information to work out the location. We know that 29 November, 2020 must be 5 hours 18 minutes long, which lets us determine the latitude is about 63.75 degrees north. Once we know that, we can determine from a map of time zones and the sunset time of 2:01 PM that the longitude is roughly 68.5 degrees west. Those coordinates describe a spot just outside of Iqaluit, Nunavut.

  2. WELL, I HOPE THAT THE 2020 GREY CUP IS IN FORT MCMURRAY BECAUSE IF IT IS FURTHER NORTH THAN THAT, YOU ARE ASKING FOR A LOT OF TROUBLE BECAUSE IF THE WEATHER ISN’T GREAT AND YOU DON’T HAVE A LOT OF LIGHT, YOUR GONNA HAVE ONE HELL OF A TIME GETTING THE GAME IN, WHY NOT HAVE IN A CITY THAT IS CLOSE TO THE US BORDER BUT IN A CITY WHERE YOU ARE GONNA ATTRACT A LOT OF PEOPLE TO COME TO THE GAME WHETHER IT IS FROM PEOPLE IN CANADA OR IN THE US HERE
