Canadian Football News in 1945

On Thursday, September 27 a new football team was formed in Calgary.[1] On October 10, it was decided that the new team would play as the Calgary Stampeders.[2] The Stampeders joined the WIFU with blue and gold colours.

The IRFU would resume play, but the WIFU still suspended operations.
