The CFL considers all clubs which have played in Montreal as one in their league records, including those of the Montreal Concordes and the Baltimore Stallions, which relocated to become the current Alouettes club in 1996. The Alouettes, however, do not officially recognize the Baltimore franchise or its records.

Franchise history

The Alouettes were first formed in 1946. They named themselves after the famous work song "Alouette" (about plucking various parts of a lark), which has become a light-hearted symbol of the Québécois. (Similarly, during the Second World War the RCAF's 425 Bomber Squadron assumed the lark as its badge and the motto "Je te plumerai"—I shall pluck you.) From 1968 to 1976 the team played in the Autostade stadium. Alouette is a popular childrens song about plucking a bird. ...

In 1969, the team was purchased by the highly capable Sam Berger, the former owner of the Ottawa Rough Riders. During his tenure, the team made six Grey Cup appearances and won the Canadian championship three times. When Berger retired in 1981 he sold the team to Nelson Skalbania, a Vancouver businessman. The flamboyant Skalbania set about signing two first-round picks from the 1981 National Football League draft plus NFL name players such as Vince Ferragamo and Billy "White Shoes" Johnson. The financial collapse of Skalbania's highly-leveraged business empire led to the team ceasing operations. Samuel Sam Berger (1900 - July 24, 1992) was a Canadian owner of the Canadian Football Leagues Ottawa Rough Riders and Montreal Alouettes and president of the CFL.

Montreal Concordes

After the original Alouettes franchise folded at the end of the 1981 CFL season, Montreal businessman, and founder of the Montreal Expos baseball team, Charles Bronfman, came to the rescue and financed a new club for the 1982 season under the name Montreal Concordes. In 1986 the team attempted to embrace its predecessor's history and regenerate flagging fan interest by rebranding itself the "new" Montreal Alouettes, but mounting financial losses caused the second team to fold days before the 1987 season started.

The Current Alouettes

The Baltimore Football Club was granted an expansion franchise for 1994 by the Canadian Football League. Originally intending to invoke the spirit of the city's former NFL club, the team attempted to brand themselves the "Baltimore Colts". The NFL filed suit and won an injunction, both prohibiting the team from use of the "Baltimore Colts" name as well as that of their next choice, the "Baltimore CFL Colts". During this time, it was quite common for the stadium announcer to announce the team as the "Baltimore <long pause where the fans would yell "Colts"> Football Club". The team would use the names, "Baltimore Football Club" and the "Baltimore CFLers" for its inaugural season, before becoming the "Baltimore Stallions" for the 1995 season.

The team was by far the most successful of the CFL's American teams, garnering persistent fan support in the Baltimore area and appearing in the Grey Cup in both seasons (losing in 1994, winning in 1995). But in late 1995, Cleveland Browns owner Art Modell announced his intention to relocate his NFL club to Baltimore, where they would be rechristened the Baltimore Ravens. This would have made the Stallions the only CFL club ever to directly compete with the NFL, whose season overlaps with the last three months of the CFL season. Stallions owner Jim Speros realized that the Stallions could not possibly compete with the NFL and decided to move the club. After deals with Norfolk, Virginia and Houston fell through, Speros moved the Stallions to Montreal and revived the old Alouettes name. The CFLs American teams used a modified league logo. ...

In 1997, Jim Speros sold the team to Robert Wettenhall, and former Alouette star and CFL Commissioner Larry Smith became President of the club. The new Alouettes franchise played their first two seasons at Olympic Stadium, but attendance in the domed stadium was very poor and the long term prospects for the franchise were once again uncertain, until a twist of fate revitalized the floundering club. Montreals Olympic Stadium (In French: Le Stade Olympique) was the main venue of the 1976 Summer Olympics and was the home ballpark of Major League Baseballs Montreal Expos from 1977 until the franchise was moved to Washington, D.C. after the 2004 season. ...


When a scheduled November 1997 U2 concert conflicted with an unexpected home play-off game against the B.C. Lions (due to the CFL's curious 'cross-over' playoff format), the team decided to temporarily return to its old home at Molson Stadium. Interest in the team soared and the game was sold out, prompting the team to permanently relocate to the smaller venue beginning with the 1998 season. Since 1999, the Alouettes have sold out every game at the stadium, located on the McGill University campus.
