The Grey Cup is on its way back to Toronto in the next few years.

"The Grey Cup will be here before the end of the decade," CFL commissioner Tom Wright told The Toronto Sun yesterday at the announcement of York University being the future home for the Argos.

"I can't say when, but it will come back here and it deserves to."

Wright made his prediction based on the commitment of first-year Argos owners David Cynamon and Howard Sokolowski. Toronto hasn't been host city of the title game since 1992.

"I think under these circumstances with these guys it will come back here and they'll do a great job," Wright said. "If I was a betting man I'd say they might have it (at the new stadium) to showcase their facility. This is their home."

The earliest the Grey Cup could be played in Toronto would be 2007.
