The Sun Life Grey Cup Fan March is back and it promises to be even bigger and better.
“This is your chance to carry the Grey Cup trophy to the 101st Grey Cup Championship Game at Mosaic Stadium in Regina,” said Mark Cohon, Commissioner of the Canadian Football League. “When we held the first Sun Life Grey Cup Fan March at the 100th Grey Cup last year, we said we hoped to begin a new Canadian tradition. So it’s back for another year, and we’re looking to fans in Saskatchewan to take the event to a new level.”
The Sun Life Grey Cup Fan March will take place on Grey Cup Sunday and thanks to Sun Life, there will be lots of family fun: entertainment, face painting, mascots, prizes, special guests, and a brief ceremony to kick off the march.
“It was thrilling to watch last year as the march grew and thousands of fans joined in along the route, and we expect even more excitement this year,” said Mary De Paoli, Executive Vice President, Public and Corporate Affairs and Chief Marketing Officer, Sun Life Financial. “This fun event perfectly captures what we love about the CFL: the fans belong to the league, the league belongs to the fans, and the Grey Cup belongs to all of us. This is where community and country come together in a very unique and special way, and Sun Life is proud to be a part of it.”
