Montreal Alouettes cut cheerleading squad

Montreal-Cheerleaders-Cancelled

Due to financial budgets the Montreal Alouettes have decided to cut their cheerleading squad. “In the current context of financial turnaround, difficult decisions must be made,” said Charles Rooke, the Alouettes President of communications. “The decision has nothing to do with the hard work the Alouettes Cheerleading squad put in over the years, or their popularity, he added.

The Wettenhall family have owned the team since 1997. The Canadian Football League took over ownership last Spring after the Montreal Alouettes had lost money for many years. The Montreal Alouettes were sold in January to a Toronto-based businessman Sid Spiegel and Gary Stern.

Monreal Alouettes history:

The Montreal Alouettes (FrenchLes Alouettes de Montreal) are a professional Canadian football team based in MontrealQuebec. Founded in 1946, the team has folded and been revived twice. The Alouettes compete in the East Division of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and last won the Grey Cup championship in 2010. Their home field is Percival Molson Memorial Stadium for the regular season and as of 2014 also home of their playoff games.

The original Alouettes team (1946–1981) won four Grey Cups and were particularly dominant in the 1970s. After their collapse in 1982, they were immediately reconstituted under new ownership as the Montreal Concordes. After playing for four years as the Concordes, they revived the Alouettes name for the 1986 season. A second folding in 1987 led to a nine-year hiatus of CFL football in the city.

The current Alouettes franchise was established in 1996 by the owners of the Baltimore Stallions. The Stallions were disbanded at the same time as the Alouettes’ re-establishment after having been the most successful of the CFL’s American expansion franchises, culminating in a Grey Cup championship in 1995. Many players from the Stallions’ 1995 roster signed with the Alouettes and formed the core of the team’s 1996 roster.

For record-keeping purposes, the CFL considers all clubs that have played in Montreal as one franchise dating to 1946, and considers the Alouettes to have suspended operations in 1987 before returning in 1996. Although the Alouettes’ re-establishment in 1996 is often considered a relocation of the Stallions, neither the league nor the Alouettes recognize the Baltimore franchise, or its records, as part of the Alouettes’ official team history.
