Edmonton Eskimos-Inspired CFL FootballCFL_Eskimos_Grey_12.5x12.5 $39
Our Edmonton Eskimos-inspired art print was created to honour the history of one of Canada's oldest and most successful football cities. The current Eskimos were founded in 1949 yet clubs with the name date back as far as 1895. Today's Eskimos are the CFL's winningest franchise and still hold the league record for consecutive Grey Cup wins at five between 1978-1982.
The team's nickname was given to them by their bitter rivals to the south. Calgarians thought their northern neighbours lived in the far north and named them 'Esquimeaux' (for Eskimo) even though they were obviously well south of the Arctic. Eventually, the name stuck because it came to represent strength and determination, not to mention the double E rolled off the tongue well.
