Franchise history

Edmonton played its first series of organized games with the formation of the Alberta Rugby Football Union in 1895. In 1897 the name Esquimaux was adopted. In 1910 the club was officially named the Edmonton Eskimos. Since 1978 the Eskimos have played their home games in Commonwealth Stadium, which is now the only grass field in the CFL. They are one of the most successful teams in Canadian football history, having won the Grey Cup more than any other team except the Toronto Argonauts, and being the run-away leader in attendance for many years. Canadian football is a sport in which two teams of twelve players each compete for territorial control of a field of play 110 yards (100. ... The Toronto Argonauts are a Canadian Football League team based in Toronto, Ontario. ...


The team holds many impressive records, including five consecutive Grey Cup wins (1978 to 1982), and 34 consecutive years in the playoffs (1972 to 2005), a record no other North American professional team (regardless of sport) has equalled. Former Eskimos have figured prominently in Alberta political life: past players include two former provincial premiers (E. Peter Lougheed and Donald Getty), a former mayor of Edmonton (Bill Smith), and a lieutenant-governor (Norman Kwong).

During the glory years of the late 1970s and early 1980s, the Edmonton Eskimos won five Grey Cup championships in a row. No other team in the CFL, since Edmonton re-entered the CFL in 1949, has even won three in row, let alone five. The Eskimos have also enjoyed great attendance in the stands as they lead the league.


Origin of the uniform

The current uniform colours, green and gold, were adopted when the Eskimos received uniforms from the University of Alberta Golden Bears football team, which was dormant due to a lack of competition in 1949. The colours have remained since that time, and the Golden Bears maintain them to this day as well. The University of Alberta (U of A) is a public coeducational research university located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. ... The Alberta Golden Bears are the mens athletic teams that represent the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. ...


Wall of Honour

The Eskimos have a policy of honouring the players who have best represented the team on the field; similar to a team retiring a number, the Eskimos keep the number in circulation, although the number is hung on the edge of the concrete separating the upper and lower decks of Commonwealth Stadium.
