Percival Molson Memorial Stadium (also known in French as Stade Percival-Molson; commonly referred to as Molson Stadium in English or Stade Molson in French) is an outdoor football stadium located downtown on Mount Royal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Named in honour of Percival Molson, it is owned by McGill University and is home to the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League in 1947 until 1967 and from 1998 to present and the McGill Redmen of the Quebec University Football League. The Selwyn House Gryphons high-school football team also play their home games at the stadium. The stadium has a capacity of 25,012, the result of a renovation project begun in 2009 that increased capacity from the previous 20,202. Percival Molson Stadium is the smallest football stadium in the CFL with a permanent seating capacity of only 25,012; Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton, Ontario (at 24,000 seats) will be smaller upon its 2014 completion.
