Timeline: Calgary's 6 Grey Cup wins

  • Nov. 27, 1948

    Varsity Stadium, Toronto
    Vs. Ottawa Rough Riders
    Calgary 12, Ottawa 7

    The Stamps finished the season 12-0 — that year's team is still the only CFL team ever to have posted a perfect record.

    The big play in the game was scored on a sleeper play pass when the Stampeders' Keith Spaith found Norm Hill in the end zone.

    The game is also known for what happened during Grey Cup week off the field.

    Calgary fans went wild in Toronto all week long, hosting pancake breakfasts on the steps of Toronto City Hall, riding a horse into the lobby of the Royal York Hotel, and starting parades, dances and parties all over town.

  • Nov. 28, 1971

    Empire Stadium, Vancouver
    Vs. Toronto Argonauts
    Calgary 14, Toronto 11

    After losing Grey Cup games in 1949, 1968 and 1970, the Stamps finally won the biggest game of the year against Toronto.

    The game was played on a rainy day in Vancouver and wreaked havoc on both teams' ability to score.

    In the end, it was the Stampeders’ Herm Harrison and Jesse Mims who scored the necessary points to secure Calgary's second Grey Cup win.

  • Nov. 29, 1992

    Vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
    Calgary 24, Winnipeg 10

    Stampeders’ quarterback Doug Flutie, the two-time CFL Most-Outstanding Player, lead Calgary to its third Grey Cup win.

    Helping Flutie secure the win for the Stamps were receivers Dave Sapunjis and Allen Pitts.

    Flutie completed 33 out of 49 pass attempts for 480 yards — 28 yards short of Sam Etcheverry's all-time record in a Grey Cup game.

    With the win, Calgary stopped a dubious streak; the Stamps had not won the Grey Cup since 1971, the longest period of any team at the time.

  • Nov. 22, 1998

    Winnipeg Stadium, Winnipeg
    Vs. Hamiton Tiger-Cats
    Calgary 26, Hamilton 24

    It was a nail-bitter until the last second.

    The TiCats took a 24-23 lead with less than three minutes to go — but the Stamps had a little bit of magic left in them.

    Calgary quarterback Jeff Garcia led the Stampeders down the field setting up place kicker Mark McLaughlin to win the game.

    McLaughlin made no mistakes, and Calgary celebrated its fourth Grey Cup win.

    Jeff Garcia was named the Grey Cup MVP, while the Stamps’ Vince Danielsen was named Canadian MVP.

  • Nov. 25, 2001

    Olympic Stadium, Montreal
    Vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
    Calgary 27, Winnipeg 19

    With only three wins since Labour Day 2001, and a disappointing 8-10 season, expectations heading into the playoffs were not very high for the Stampeders.

    The Stamps were heavy underdogs going into the 89th Grey Cup, as they ran into a 14-4 Winnipeg team. But Calgary got hot at the right time, led by quarterback Marcus Crandell. He was named the Grey Cup MVP.

    The big play in the game came when the Stamps Aldi Henry blocked a Winnipeg field-goal attempt and Willie Fells picked up the ball and ran it back for a touchdown.

    The Stampeders captured their fifth Grey Cup championship and become only the second team with a losing record to win Lord Grey's trophy.

  • Nov. 23, 2008

    Olympic Stadium, Montreal
    Vs. Montreal Alouettes
    Calgary 22, Montreal 14

    It was the second-largest Grey Cup crowd gathered in Montreal to watch the host team take on the Stamps.

    For Calgary, it was the same venue the team last won the game in 2001. Once again a Stamps quarterback was pivotal in the win.

    Henry Burris threw for 308 yards and was named Grey Cup MVP. Stamps kicker Sandro DeAngelis connected on five field goals, good enough to name him Most-Valuable Canadian in the game.

    The championship was Calgary's sixth in team history.
