This weekend from November 24-26 the Metro Toronto Convention Centre will have the honour of hosting a series of free and ticketed events for families and die-hard football fans alike during the 104th Grey Cup Festival. Some of the not-to-be-missed highlights will include a CFL megastore, team parties and a TSN SportsCentre desk that kids can experience firsthand!
The festival brings with it an important economic benefit to Toronto and the province and we look forward to executing these events with pride and celebrating with many travelling from far and wide to attend.
