TORONTO – Canada Sports Tourism has presented the 110th Gray Cup Championship and the 2023 Gray Cup Festival with the Prestige Award as Canada's Event of the Year with a budget of more than $1 million.

A recent study by Sports Tourism Canada found that the 23 Gray Cup game and festival generated an economic impact of $73.5 million in Canada.

The Gray Cup was held in Hamilton last November, with the Montreal Alouettes earning a 28-24 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The RBC Canadian Open Golf Championship in Toronto, won by Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., and the Women's Alpine Skiing World Cup in Mont-Tremblant, Que., were among the other finalists.

The Prestige Awards are given annually to recognize exceptional sports tourism initiatives, games and multi-sport events.

“It is a true honor to be recognized by Canada Sports Tourism as the Canadian Event of the Year,” said Matt Avnick, President/CEO of Business Operations at Hamilton Sports Group.

“The Prestige Award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our fans, staff, volunteers, businesses and government partners to realize this bold vision.”

This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 26, 2024.
