Launched at city hall in the fall of 2012, the Crowchild Classic pits the Mount Royal Cougars and the University of Calgary Dinos in regular season competition throughout the season in men’s and women’s hockey, soccer and volleyball. The winner is determined yearly by the results of the head-to-head clashes between the two universities.

The event was born when Mount Royal entered the Canada West and U-SPORT conferences. It is also part of a concerted push by both universities to promote the high level of inter-university sport within Calgary and the benefits of exercise and a healthy lifestyle for all students.

The trophy for the winner of the Classic is a 68-kilogram cast-iron City of Calgary manhole cover donated by Trojan Industries intended to represent the arterial road (Crowchild Trail) that links the two universities.

The humble yet powerfully strong manhole cover can comfortably withstand millions of vehicles passing over it every day; it represents the pain and sacrifice that student-athletes willingly accept — often in the dark and without public recognition — in pursuit of the sport they love.
