Calgary Dinos Football Schedule
The Calgary Dinos are ready to take to the field and take on some of the best teams
in the Canada West Universities Athletic Association. The Dinos have some real talent on their team this season, and fans
are sure to be excited to see how this team will fare. The Dinos will face some tough teams at home this season, but their
fans are sure to show up to support them. It should be another fantastic year of Calgary Dinos football, and you can be a
part of the action yourself by attending as many home games as possible.
The Dinos will host the Alberta Golden Bears
on September 5th for what should be a fantastic matchup. The Golden Bears have a roster that is brimming with talent, and
it's going to take a great effort from the Dinos to get the job done in this one. It doesn't get any better than seeing a
top-rate contest like this one live and in person, so make sure you're there to see the Dinos try to squash the Golden Bears.
will face another tough test when they take on the UBC Thunderbirds at home on October 25th. This will be the final home contest
for the Dinos this season, and the last home game of the year is always one that sees loads of fans hit the stands. The Dinos
will need a loud home crowd at McMahon Stadium to take down the Thunderbirds, so head out to this game and support the team.
There are some other great matchups along the way this season, so check out the full schedule.
While the Calgary Dinos have proven themselves to be one of the most dominant teams in the CWUAA and they have
won four Vanier Cups, it has been eighteen years since their last Vanier Cup win, something they are surely looking to change
in the 2013 season after slightly disappointing finishes to the 2011 and 2012 seasons. From 2000 through 2012 the Dinos finished
each season with eight conference wins but it was not until 2011 and 2012 that eight wins proved to be enough to capture first
place in Canada West. Fifteen former members of the Calgary Dinos have gone on to play in the CFL, among them Anthony Woodson,
Tim O'Neill, Nathan Coehoorn and others, but you can expect that number to increase each season as the Dinos are constantly
full of pro level talent.
Going to a game to see a true sports juggernaut play at home
in front of their rabid fans is an experience any sports fan will cherish. This is precisely the experience that a Calgary
Dinos home game offers. On game day McMahon Stadium is rocking as much as or more than any other football stadium in North
America and the moment you set foot in the parking lot this will be evident. The tens of thousands of red, gold, and black
clad fans partying and celebrating even before entering the stadium gates sets the perfect tone for the party about to take
place inside McMahon Stadium. Once inside and seated you will immediately be caught up in the frenzied atmosphere and friendly
camaraderie of being with scores of other Dinos fans eager to see this powerhouse program reel off another win against a top
foe. By the time the game is over you may have made some new friends and will surely want to continue the celebration either
in the parking lot or at one of the nearby bars and restaurants. This is a day you won't want to end, so there is no point
in hurrying home.
