Although you might have wondered what is Canada doing in sports besides Hockey and Lacrosse? In fact, football is a sport that is the second most popular spectator sport in Canada! The origins of Canadian Football began in1860 with the game of Rugby. By the early 1900's, Canadian Rugby had slowly began to evolve into a westernized form that follows the American football style.

During 1930-1950, two senior leagues of the Canadian Rugby Football Union (who followed this trend) grew from amateur status into professional competition teams. While others in the Union couldn't contend with these newly developed teams, it was in 1954 that the modern Canadian Football era was about to flourish. By 1958 there were a total of nine separate franchise teams which lasted until 1981.

Over the next decade, franchise names of the teams would further transform and set schedules for season games would be established. With a short-lived American expansion in 1993-1996, this allowed a brief merger with small U.S. based football teams.

Due to financial troubles within the Canadian Football League, and conflicting performance between the two countries, would trigger an end to this venture. By 1996, the original 9 football teams throughout Canada resumed their seasonal games. Struggling with financial burdens (within the CFL) a brief bail-out loan with the American NFL in 1997 helped the CFL regain stability. This led to a CFL-NFL agreement which finally expired in 2006.

By this time, the CLF was hitting record numbers for attendance in a single season. Reaching a whopping 2.3 million in the 1995 season alone! On average they attract roughly 2 million fans (per game season) every year to this date. Expansion and renovation for many fields in the CFL since 2010 has increased seating for even more spectators. The ?Grey Cup? which is similar to the NFL Super Bowl, attracts 80% of the overall population who follow the CFL.
