Grey Cup fever sweeps Vancouver on game day

Vancouver hosted an all day party Sunday as Grey Cup fever took hold and armies of fans marched and rallied throughout the city.

CFL fans marched the Grey Cup down Robson Street and onto BC Place passing the trophy around as they went.

The CFL is the only professional league in North America to allow fans to carry its trophy this way. 

The match appears to be short of a sell-out by only a few hundreds tickets.
