The last time the Grey Cup was not presented was in 1919. Due to COVID 19, the 100 year streak will be broken with the cancellation of the 2020 CFL season. The league had hoped to present a shortened season in the hub city of Winnipeg, but that too was scrubbed due to the inability to secure funding from the federal government. 

Commissioner Randy Ambrosie says they are absolutely committed to the 2021 season and the pursuit of a strong future for the league.
