Next season's Vanier Cup will be played at Vancouver's renovated B.C. Place Stadium before the Grey Cup game is played on the same site.

An announcement is expected Monday about the Canadian university championship game being promoted as part of the overall Grey Cup festival.

Although a firm date for the Vanier Cup has not been established next year, it is likely to be played on the Friday night and not the Saturday.

The arrangement was put together by MRX, the sports marketing company operated by Hamilton Tiger-Cats owner Bob Young. MRX bought the rights to the Vanier Cup outright, along with the media rights to the game and CIS football.

The Vanier Cup was last staged as part of the Grey Cup festival in 2007 when both events were held at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

This season's Vanier Cup is being played Saturday in Quebec City, featuring Laval and Calgary. The Grey Cup game will be played the next day in Edmonton.
