Move over Super Bowl, CFL standardizes Grey Cup Logo

Grey Cup 2014

Joining their bigger, more successful brothers south of the border the Canadian Football League is now standardizing the look of their Grey Cup championship game logo from year-to-year.

They’re even using the same colour scheme as the Super Bowl.

The Grey Cup previously had a “it’s kinda standardized but it’s still it’s own design” system, the wordmark and cup graphic would stay the same from game to game but the colours and host-specific graphics associated with the logo would change drastically.

You’ll also notice in the last three games (since the 100th game) there’s been a heavier emphasis on what game number the cup is rather than the year, I’ve noted media referred to the game as the “101st Grey Cup” rather than the “2013 Grey Cup” or “Grey Cup 101” during this years game this past week.
