The Edmonton Eskimos compete in the West Division of the Canadian Football League. The Eskimos have earned the right to be mentioned with the top franchises in CFL history with 14 league championships. The only team with more championships than the Eskimos is the Toronto Argonauts. The Argonauts lead all teams in the CFL with 17 championships. The 35 consecutive trips to the playoffs made by the Edmonton Eskimos stands as the longest streak of its kind for professional team sports in North America. Another feat that sets the team apart from the rest of the CFL is the unprecedented streak of five consecutive Grey Cup championships it won from 1978 to 1982. The Edmonton Eskimos are one of three community-owned franchises in the CFL, and the rabid fan support the team receives reflects this fact. The Eskimos are preparing for a new season and the chance to bring a 15th championship to Edmonton. You can find Edmonton Eskimos tickets at StubHub.
