Montreal Alouettes

The Montreal Alouettes (French: Les Alouettes de Montréal, ) are a professional Canadian football team based in Montreal, Quebec. They are also commonly known as the Als. They are currently members of the East Division of the Canadian Football League (CFL). The Alouettes play their regular season home games at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium and their home playoff games at Olympic Stadium.

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 (1946–1981), Montreal Concordes (1982–1985) and Montreal Alouettes (1986). 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.

Under General Manager Jim Popp and quarterback Anthony Calvillo, the Als became one of the most successful teams in CFL history in the 2000s. Between 2000–2010, the Als led the CFL with a 168-88-1 record for a .656 winning percentage and eight regular season first place finishes. They have the most Grey Cup appearances in the 2000s with eight, having won three in that period, including two back-to-back. The Alouettes currently have the longest active playoff streak, and second longest of all time, having qualified for the playoffs for 17 straight seasons.
