  Canadian Football League History
The league remained stable with nine franchises from its inception until 1982 when the Montreal Alouettes folded and were subsequently replaced the same year by a new franchise named the Concordes.
However, fan interest in Canadian football, with the possible exception of the Stallions (largely because the Stallions were a top team), was sparse at best, with fans being driven away to see American college football or the NFL late in the season.
Football has been gaining in popularity in Quebec with the recent success of the Alouettes, and Quebec university football teams now lead the country in attendance and on the field, with Laval University and the University of Montreal, and Concordia consistently in the top ten in the country.

 Football League Trophy preview | News | Guardian Unlimited Football
It is always the leading goalscorers who get top billing, but this is particularly easy to understand for today's Football League Trophy Final, with Swansea's Lee Trundle and Carlisle's Karl Hawley, the respective League One and League Two players of the year, facing each other.
Indeed, his total of 25 in all competitions is the highest in the league and Hawley attributes this to the blow of being left out of the starting line-up for the promotion play-off final last May.
The other disquieting thoughts for Carlisle about their clash with Swansea are that they will be without Hawley's usual striking partner, Michael Bridges, and that their fans are expected to be outnumbered two to one by those of the Welsh club in the 40,000-plus Millennium Stadium crowd.
