Research Now Poll Finds Canadians Mostly Undecided on 2011 CFL Grey Cup Champion
Released on: August 15, 2011, 11:14 am
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 (10%).
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 mounting.
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
