The Toronto Argonauts (formally the Toronto Argonaut Football Club, normally alluded to as the “Argos”) are an expert Canadian football group contending in the East Division of the Canadian Football League (CFL). Situated in Toronto, Ontario, the group was established in 1873 and is the most established existing pro athletics group in North America as yet utilizing its unique name, and they are the most established enduring group in both the present day CFL and East Division. The group’s inceptions go back to an adjusted adaptation of rugby football that developed in North America in the last 50% of the nineteenth century. The Argonauts played their home diversions at Rogers Center from 1989 until 2016 when the group moved to BMO Field, the fifth arena site to have the group.
The Argonauts have won the Gray Cup a record multiple times and have showed up in the last multiple times. Most as of late they crushed the Calgary Stampeders 27– 24 in the 105th Gray Cup in 2017. The Argonauts hold the best winning rate in the title diversion (73.9%) and have the longest dynamic winning streak in amusements in which they have showed up, at six. The Argonauts have confronted each present western CFL group at any rate once in the Gray Cup, while their most celebrated divisional contention has been with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The group was possessed by the Argonaut Rowing Club for its initial 83 years and has been claimed by a progression of business interests since 1956. The Argonauts were an apparatus on the Toronto sports scene for a considerable length of time, with participation topping during the 1970s. In May 2015 it was declared that a consortium of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment’s Larry Tanenbaum (by means of the Kilmer Group) and Bell Canada would obtain the group.
The deal incorporated a planned move to MLSE run BMO Field for the 2016 season, which has for some time been proposed given participation under-usage at Rogers Center and declared plans to introduce common grass at the domed arena, rendering it unfit for football. (While the move has since been done, it is far-fetched that the fake turf will be supplanted at all now at Rogers Center.) More as of late, MLSE reported in December 2017 that it had consented to buy the group out and out, with the arrangement finished on January 19, 2018. The past proprietors will keep on in a roundabout way claim stakes in the Argos, as Bell Canada and the Kilmer Group separately hold 37.5% and 25% stakes in MLSE.
Given the length of establishment history, many players, mentors, and the board have been regarded in some frame throughout the years. The group perceives a select gathering of players with resigned numbers: early greats Joe Krol and Dick Shatto, stalwart hostile lineman Danny Nykoluk, and Michael “Pinball” Clemons who has been the latest substance of the group.
