27th Grey Cup
|Date||December 9, 1939|
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers defeated the Ottawa Rough Riders 8 to 7. The weekend of the match saw very low temperatures so the night before the game the groundskeepers attempted to warm the playing surface by lighting hundreds of litres of gasoline, nevertheless, the field was frozen again the next day.
