The league and local organizing committees provide travel information for fans who attend the annual Grey Cup and related events such as festivals and the annual Grey Cup parade.

Historic moments in Grey Cup history include the game's first overtime periods in 1961 when the Winnipeg Blue Bombers defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The Bombers repeated their championship over Hamilton in 1962 when fog forced the game to be played over two days.

The CFL attempted to expand its league to the United States during the early 1990s. One American club, the Baltimore Stallions, lost the 1994 final to the host British Columbia Lions on a field goal as time expired.

The Montreal Alouettes won the 2009 Grey Cup on a second-chance field goal after time expired on a last-second missed field goal. The Saskatchewan Roughriders were penalized for having an extra player on the field during the first try.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are the hosts for the 103rd Grey Cup on Nov. 29, 2015, at Investors Group Field.
