Homecoming at the University of Guelph is just around the corner and you definitely won’t want to miss the big game!

The Guelph Gryphons Men’s Football Team will take on the Queen’s Gaels in an afternoon matchup, but the game itself will be just one part of a much bigger celebration. Expect a festive atmosphere including food trucks, tailgating, a pre-game live band, a halftime performance and a licensed area in the south endzone.

Gryphon Football

Gryphon Football is one of the most exciting university football programs across Canada. Come see some of the best players in the country as they face off against other schools in the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) division.

Alumni Stadium is an impressive venue, with a state-of-the-art, CFL-sized synthetic turf football field and a video scoreboard.

This storied program has been around since 1950, when the Guelph Gryphons first formed; this was even before the U of G was founded in 1964. The team are 4-time Yates Cup champions, winning the title in 1984, 1992, 1996 and 2015.
