Third time's a charm for the Calgary Stampeders.

The team is bringing home the Grey Cup after coming up short in the championship game the past two seasons — an overtime loss to the Ottawa Redblacks in 2016 and a snowy defeat at the hands of the Toronto Argonauts in 2017.

The city is getting ready to welcome its champs home with a celebration rally at Municipal Plaza on Tuesday following the team's 27-16 win over Ottawa on Sunday.

The event will be held from noon to 1 p.m. and fans are invited don their best red and white and come down and celebrate their team.
