Edmonton will play host to the 2018 Grey Cup at Commonwealth Stadium, the league announced Monday.

The game will coincide with the 40th anniversary of Commonwealth Stadium and will be the 106th installment of the Grey Cup.

“The Edmonton Eskimos are thrilled to host the Grey Cup in 2018, a year that will mark the 40th anniversary of Commonwealth Stadium, and the 70th anniversary of our team’s play as the Edmonton Eskimos,” said chairman of the Eskimos’ board of directors, Brad Sparrow. “This organization and this city share a legacy that is second to none in sport. And we’re confident that, with the support of our fans, and our private and public sector partners, we will host a game and a celebration that adds a proud new chapter.”

It will be the first time Edmonton has hosted the event since 2010, when they sold out the game in one week. The Eskimos last played in the game in 2015, defeating the Ottawa RedBlacks.
