For the fifth time in Canadian Football League history, the Grey Cup will be played in Winnipeg.

The 112th edition of the CFL championship game will be contested following a week of fanfare and celebration at the annual Grey Cup Festival in November 2025.

“As a proud Winnipegger, I’m absolutely elated to announce the return of the Grey Cup to my hometown,” commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in a statement.

“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 Manitoba capital first hosted the Grey Cup in 1991, which was the 79th edition of Canada’s largest single-day sporting event. The title game returned to Winnipeg in 1998, 2006, and most recently in 2015. IG Field will play host to the championship game for the second time since being opened in 2013.

“Winnipeg has done an incredible job of hosting the Grey Cup in the past, and I know 2025 is going to be even better. This is one of Canada’s biggest events and it will showcase our great city to the rest of the country while providing a boost to the local economy. I look forward to celebrating with visitors and local fans at IG Field,” local mayor Scott Gillingham said in a statement.

The upcoming CFL season will culminate in the 110th Grey Cup being played on Sunday, November 19 at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton. The 111th Grey Cup will be held on the west coast in Vancouver in November 2024.
