If you are the big fans of football sports, you surely don’t want to miss to watch the 106th Grey Cup presented by Shaw. The Grey Cup will feature the Canadian Football League championship for the 2018 season. In Canada, it will be airing through TSN. Meanwhile, for the US viewers, you could tune in ESPN to catch up with the spectacle. The game is set to happen at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta on Sunday, November 25, 2018.
The process of selection
Back then on March 24, 2017, Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos were bidding to host the upcoming 2018 Grey Cup game. But in early 2018, the league would have the bidding process based on the merits of the applications to determine the host. Both Calgary and Edmonton have hosted the Grey Cup game four times. And then the officials made the fair decision. The Edmonton was awarded for the 106th Grey Cup. Meanwhile, Calgary attained 107th Grey Cup.
If you want to attend the venues when the event happens, you will want to reserve the option right away. The thing is that back then on June 6, 2018, Eskimos announced that they had sold over 51,000 tickets in only four days. That means only 4,800 seats are remaining. We don’t know for sure if the cards are still available. You will want to check the availability right through the official ticketing sites.
Grey Cup always comes with the entertainment, which makes the viewers want to keep watching the event entirely. The officials announced that The Reklaws would perform before the game. Back then on September 29, the CFL officials announced that Alessia Car would play in the halftime. If you happen to be the fans, you surely don’t want to miss this opportunity.
