History[edit]

Rugby at the Varsity athletic grounds, 1909

Argos vs. Rough Riders, 1924

Varsity Stadium
Stadium
has for its entire history been host to the University of Toronto's collegiate Canadian football team, the Varsity Blues. However it was, until the opening of Exhibition Stadium
Stadium
in 1959, the home of the Toronto
Toronto
Argonauts of what would become the Canadian Football League. Although it has not hosted a meaningful CFL game in almost half a century, it still holds the record for the number of times any stadium has hosted the Canadian professional football championship game, the Grey Cup. Capacity of the stadium has varied with time, but peaked at about 22,000 in the 1950s although, with the use of temporary bleachers, a record crowd of 27,425 watched the Edmonton Eskimos
Edmonton Eskimos
defeat the Montreal Alouettes
Montreal Alouettes
50-27 in the 1956 Grey Cup final. During the 1976 Summer Olympics, Varsity Stadium
Stadium
hosted football games, and was the site of the semi-final game between Brazil and Poland.[1][2] Perhaps the most famous Canadian football game played in the Stadium
Stadium
was the 1950 Mud Bowl for the Grey Cup
Grey Cup
championship. In soccer, the NASL's Toronto
Toronto
Metros-Croatia used Varsity Stadium through 1978, before moving to Exhibition Stadium.[3] They returned six years later as the Toronto
Toronto
Blizzard and again made it their home for the 1984 season.[4] On October 3, 1984, before 16,842 fans, the last game ever contested in the original North American Soccer League was played at Varsity Stadium
Stadium
when the Chicago Sting
Chicago Sting
defeated the Blizzard 3–2 to win the deciding game of 1984 Soccer Bowl
Soccer Bowl
Series. The NASL would fold before the start of the next season. In mid-1986, Varsity Stadium
Stadium
played host to the World Lacrosse Championships, a tournament featuring the United States, Canada, England, and Australia. The US defeated Canada in the final, 18-9. The new Toronto
Toronto
Blizzard returned to Varsity in 1987 as part of the Canadian Soccer League but would move to the smaller Centennial Park Stadium
Stadium
as a cost-cutting move. They returned in 1993 as a member of the American Professional Soccer League but again were forced to move, this time to Lamport Stadium, again due to financial difficulties. Varsity Stadium
Stadium
continued to host the Canadian intercollegiate championship, the Vanier Cup
Vanier Cup
(as it had been for most years from 1965-1988 [with exception of 1973-75]), but that too moved to larger quarters such as SkyDome (now known as Rogers Centre) as the popularity of the collegiate championship grew. The Canadian national team hosted Iran for a friendly match at the stadium in August 1997. A near-capacity crowd of over 15,000 attended—primarily Iranians from across the continent. It was the first visit for Iran's team in North America since before the Islamic Revolution, when its Olympic soccer team played at the 1976 Summer Games which coincidentally staged matches at Varsity Stadium. Minor league professional soccer team Toronto
Toronto
Lynx moved into the stadium in 1997, but was forced to move to Centennial Park Stadium
Stadium
due to the impending demolition of the historic facility. The stadium was demolished mid-2002 after the cost of maintaining the large facility was far more than it generated in revenue. At that time, several structural sections of the stadium were being held up by temporary repairs, and the future integrity of the structure was in question. The field and track were retained after the demolition. During the demolition and re-building of the site Toronto
Toronto
Varsity Blues relocated to Birchmount Stadium
Stadium
in Scarborough, Ontario. New facilities[edit]

Midfield at Varsity Stadium

From 2003 through 2005, temporary seating of about 1,500 was installed to permit the use of the field for intercollegiate games. The name Varsity Field was used from 2002 to 2006 during the period when the old stadium was demolished and the new stadium was being built. A plan to build a new 25,000 seat multi-purpose stadium on the site in 2005 was voted down by the governing council of the University of Toronto
Toronto
due to concerns over its cost. The facility was then planned to be built on the grounds of York University
York University
but that too failed. At the time of its demolition, Varsity Stadium
Stadium
was the second largest capacity stadium in Canada with a grass field, after Commonwealth Stadium
Stadium
in Edmonton, Alberta
Edmonton, Alberta
(however, that stadium has since switched to an artificial playing surface).

Facilities and features built in the first phase of the stadium's reconstruction include an IAAF Class II 400m eight-lane track, artificial field turf (FIFA 2 Star rated surface by Polytan), and a winter bubble enabling use during inclement weather. The multi-use capability was one of the main reasons that the plan was passed by the governing council, as opposed to the 25,000 seat stadium. Compared to the old Varsity Stadium, the seating is closer to Varsity Arena, almost making the two structures one conjoined complex. Part of the red brick wall along Bloor Street
Bloor Street
was maintained for historic purposes, but the new facility is much more open and visible from the streets overall. The new facilities are designed by Diamond and Schmitt Architects. Following the renovation, the Argonauts returned to the stadium, hosting their 2013 preseason game at their former home.[5] Their 2014 and 2015 preseason home games were also scheduled for the stadium.[6][7] 2015 Pan American Games[edit] For the 2015 Pan American Games
2015 Pan American Games
the facility hosted archery between July 14 and 18. During the games, the facility was configured to hold roughly 2,000 spectators per session. The facility also hosted the archery events of the 2015 Parapan American Games[8] Concerts[edit]

The stadium has also been host to several concerts most notably the 1969 Rock 'n Roll Revival Concert, which Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
once called the second most important event in rock & roll history and resulted in a documentary movie, Sweet Toronto, and John Lennon's Live Peace In Toronto

album. The performers were The Doors, Plastic Ono Band (Lennon, Yoko Ono, and Eric Clapton, with Klaus Voormann

KISS performed at the stadium during their Destroyer Tour on September 6, 1976. Rush performed at the stadium on September 2, 1979 during their Permanent Waves
