The 48th version of the Vanier Cup will be played in Toronto as part of the 100th Grey Cup Festival.

The Vanier Cup, the championship game for Canadian university football, is scheduled for Nov. 23 at Rogers Centre. The sold-out CFL championship game will be played two days later at the same venue.

"With the national spotlight shining on the 100th Grey Cup this November in Toronto, this partnership provides us with the opportunity to showcase the great game of Canadian football like never before," CFL commissioner Mark Cohon said Monday. "This is great news for fans across Canada, for the CIS, and for the CFL, who looks to Canadian interuniversity football for our future stars. This will make the 100th Grey Cup Festival even more exciting, and the future of our game even stronger."

Toronto last hosted the Vanier Cup in 2007, when Manitoba beat Saint Mary's 28-14. Last year at BC Place in vancouver, McMaster beat Laval in an overtime thriller.
