Calgary's History with Football
The Calgary Stampeders were formed in the year 1945 and are third on the list of the oldest active CFL franchises today. Football in Calgary however predates the Stampeders' formation by quite a few years. The sport’s roots go back to 1909 when the Calgary Tigers used to play as members of the Alberta Rugby Football Union. Multiple teams arrived on the scene over the next few years in different leagues.
One of those sides was the Calgary Bronks and it used to be members of the Western Interprovincial Football Union. They won fifteen titles over a span of three decades but the sport was brought to a close because of the Second World War.
The Calgary Stampeders Arrive
The WIFU made a comeback in 1945 with the inception of the Stampeders. It was the season of 1948 that really put the Stampeders on the map as a force to be reckoned with. That year they were unstoppable as they recorded the only perfect season in Canadian football on their way to clinching the Grey Cup.
The Stampeders have now in total got their hands on seven Grey Cups and nineteen Western Division Championships. Their last Grey Cup win was recorded in 2014; whereas, they won the Western Division title last year in 2017.
