TORONTO (November 22, 2021) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) is partnering with Swoop to welcome fans to the 108th Grey Cup on Sunday, December 12.

Those looking to get to the Grey Cup can find seats on Swoop flight WO 108 operating Friday, December 10 for only $99* including taxes and fees. The specially scheduled flight will bring fans from Abbotsford, Edmonton and Winnipeg to Hamilton to cheer on their favourite team and enjoy all that Grey Cup weekend has to offer. 

“The Grey Cup is more than a game,” said Kelly Steward, Senior Leader of Marketing, Digital and Communications at Swoop. “For all those who go, it’s a spectacle and a celebration. Swoop will provide the perfect bookends to that unforgettable event by bringing CFL fans to Hamilton on the very special flight WO 108, and flying them back home in the most convenient and affordable way possible.”

Tyler Mazereeuw, Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer of the CFL, sees the partnership as another exciting opportunity to bring the Grey Cup fan experience to new soaring heights.

“Our fans are at the core of all we do at the CFL. Year-after-year, seeing the colours of every team at the Grey Cup and during Grey Cup Week, and meeting fans from every corner of the country, reminds us why this league is so special. Our partnership with Swoop will allow more fans to join us in Hamilton as we create another year of Grey Cup memories together.”
