History

The CFL’s Montreal Alouettes play their home games at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium in downtown Montreal. The 25,012-seat stadium opened in 1915 and is owned by McGill University. The venue is named after McGill University athletics standout Percival Molson who died in World War I.

In 2010, Molson Stadium underwent a $29.4 million renovation that increased the venue’s capacity by nearly 5,000 seats. The project removed eleven rows from the stadium’s south side to build an upper deck, replaced temporary bleachers in the east end zone with permanent seating, and added 19 new suites.

In addition to being the home of the Alouettes, Molson Stadium also is home to the McGill Redmen and hosted field hockey during the 1976 Summer Olympics.
