About the Grey Cup and the CFL

In 1909, then-Governor General Earl Grey donated a trophy to the Rugby Football Championship of Canada. Originally, only teams registered with the Canadian Rugby Union were eligible to compete for the trophy, which subsequently became known as the Grey Cup. Over time, Canadian football became markedly different from its rugby origins. The Grey Cup subsequently became the property of the CFL, which had evolved into a professional football league.
