The Tiger-Cats are making their second straight appearance in the CFL’s title game. Hamilton lost to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2013, and hasn't tasted victory since 1999 when it beat the Stamps.
Calgary was defeated by the Toronto Argonauts in the Grey Cup's centennial contest in 2012. The Stampeders last won the championship in 2008 against the Montreal Alouettes.
