U SPORTS: Canadian Interuniversity Sport

The Vanier Cup was created in 1965 as the championship trophy of the Canadian College Bowl. For the first two years of competition, the Canadian College Bowl was an invitational event, with a national panel selecting two teams to play.CIS Trophy Image

In 1967, the Canadian College Bowl was declared the national football championship of the Canadian

Interuniversity Athletics Union (CIAU), now U SPORTS, with a playoff system determining the two participants.

In 1982, The Canadian College Bowl was renamed the Vanier Cup.
