The Toronto Argonauts are a professional Canadian football team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Argonauts are members of the East Division of the Canadian Football League. The franchise was founded in 1873, and is the oldest existing professional sports team in North America, still using its original name. The Chicago Cubs (1870) and the Atlanta Braves (1871) of Major League Baseball are older, but both teams have changed their name more than once and in the case of the Braves, changed cities. They have played their home games at Rogers Centre since the stadium opened in 1989 and prior to that, played in Exhibition Stadium from 1959 to 1988. Prior to 1959, the Argonauts played at Varsity Stadium, on the campus of the University of Toronto. During their history, the Argonauts have featured 39 Hall of Fame players, including CFL Most Outstanding Player (MOP) award winners Condredge Holloway, and Michael "Pinball" Clemons. The team has also gained several nicknames, including "Argos", "Boatmen", "Double Blue", and "Scullers." The team's heated rivalry with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats is one of the oldest CFL East rivalries.
