Research Now Poll Finds Canadians Mostly Undecided on 2011 CFL Grey Cup Champion
LONDON, August 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –
Research Now recently conducted a poll among 1,000 Canadian respondents
aged 18 and over who are members of the Web Perspectives panel, to find out
respondents’ opinions on which team will become the 2011 Grey Cup champion.
The poll found that most people are uncertain about the outcome of this
year’s match up. When asked ‘which team do you think will win’, 39% of
Canadian respondents replied that they are not sure. The percentage was far
higher among women (45%) than men (22%).
The Montreal Alouettes, however, were favorites with 12% of those
surveyed predicting they will come out as this year’s CFL champions. The
Toronto Argonauts ranked a close second (11%), followed by the BC Lions
The remaining 5 teams ranked very similar among those surveyed: the
Calgary Stampers (6%); the Saskatchewan Roughriders (6%); the Edmonton
Eskimos (5%); the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (5%); and the Hamilton Tiger-cats
(5%). Given such close results, only history will tell who will win the 2011
CFL Grey Cup championship.
The Canadian Football League (CFL) Grey Cup is the single biggest
sporting event in Canada, drawing football fans from across the country. It
has long been the nation’s largest television event, attracting an
impressive 6.25 million viewers last year. With less than 4 months to go,
excitement and speculation over the 2011 championship game is already
This year’s Grey Cup championship will be held on November 27 at BC
Place Stadium in Vancouver. The city will become the hub of Grey Cup fever,
hosting most of the festivities including concerts, team parties, gala
events, parades and autograph sessions.*
