The leaders of the Canadian Football League (CFL) made the official announcement on Tuesday. This will be the fifth time the Gray Cup final will be played in Winnipeg, and the first since 2015.

The announcement comes after the CFL awarded Vancouver the organization of the 2024 edition. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the BC Lions had applied for this event.

Winnipeg also hosted the event in 1991, 1998 and 2006. All three games were played at Canad Inns Stadium (formerly Winnipeg Stadium), but the venue was demolished when the Blue Bombers relocated to IG Field in 2013.
