The current franchise named the Alouettes moved to Montreal from Baltimore, Maryland, in 1996 where they had been known as the Baltimore Stallions. The CFL considers all clubs that have played in Montreal since 1946 as one franchise in their league records, including those of the original Alouettes, Montreal Concordes and Montreal Alouettes. The Alouettes and the CFL, however, do not recognize the Baltimore franchise, or its records, as part of the official team history. Including all aforementioned incarnations of the franchise, Montreal has won the Grey Cup a total of seven times.
The Alouettes' home field is Percival Molson Memorial Stadium for the regular season and Olympic Stadium for the playoffs. The Alouettes are the former two time defending Grey Cup Champions, having won back to back Grey Cups in 2009 and 2010.
The Alouettes played in the 96th Grey Cup at Olympic Stadium on Nov. 23, 2008 in which they lost to the Calgary Stampeders. On November 29, 2009, the Montreal Alouettes won the 2009 Grey Cup in Calgary against the Saskatchewan Roughriders in a dramatic game where the Alouettes rallied from a 16-point fourth-quarter deficit to win with a field goal which was, at first, missed. However a penalty for too many men was called against the Roughriders and a second field goal attemp by Damon Duval was successful One year later, in the 98th Grey Cup on November 28, 2010, Montreal prevailed again, this time by a 21–18 score.
