Host city[edit]
In 2008, the CFL awarded an expansion team to Ottawa and named the city host of
the 2014 Grey Cup, conditional on the franchise being ready to play by 2010.[1]
Lawsuits and construction delays during the renovation of Frank Clair Stadium pu
shed the start date for the city's expansion team, the Ottawa RedBlacks, to 2014
.[2] As a consequence, the CFL sought a new venue for the contest.[3] The CFL mo
ved the game to BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, British Columbia, which had most
recently hosted the 99th Grey Cup in 2011.[4]
