“We are so proud of the all-Canadian music line-up that will make the 101st Grey Cup a blast for Canadian music fans as well as Canadian football fans,” said Mark Cohon, Commissioner of the Canadian Football League.

“The Grey Cup is an icon that brings our nation together because it gives a rare opportunity to celebrate what is uniquely and proudly Canadian – including some of the best musical talent in the world.”

“We are very excited to once again present the SiriusXM Grey Cup Halftime Show,” said Paul Cunningham, SVP, Sales and Marketing, SiriusXM Canada. Coming off the success of the show during the 100th Grey Cup last year, we’re looking forward to Regina and an always exhilarating performance by Hedley, one of Canada’s biggest bands.”
