When was the last time your city won a Championship?

Recommended Posts

The Vancouver Giants in the Western Hockey League recently won the Memorial Cup, the hardest championship to win in many eyes. It celebrates the best junior hockey team in all of Canada. The Giants are a new team, but have grown tremendously in their few years.

Similarly, the B.C. Lions won the last Canadian Football League Grey Cup. Like the Memorial Cup, it is one of the oldest sports trophies in existance, and one treasured by Canadian sports.

The Whitecaps FC, a soccer organization with clubs in both the United Soccer League First Division and Women's League, won both divisions last year.

The Vancouver Canucks? They just suck. The Stanley Cup has only been won once by a Vancouver team, the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association in 1915.

That's our major sports franchises. I won't bother to mention the minor ones. Other than the NHL, we have a number of recent champions, in soccer, hockey, and football, to name our proudest.

I'm from Wakefield, UK. The team is Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and they play Rugby League.

their all time records are:

Championship: 1966-67, 1967-68 (twice)

Challenge Cup: 1908-09, 1945-46, 1959-60, 1961-62, 1962-63 (5 times)

Yorkshire Cup: 1910-11, 1924-25, 1946-47, 1947-48, 1951-52, 1956-57, 1960-61, 1961-62, 1964-65, 1992-93 (10 times)

Yorkshire League: 1909-10, 1910-11, 1945-46, 1958-59, 1959-60, 1961-62, 1962-63 (7 times)

Division One: 1998

The 1998 win won them promotion to the Super League. The Yorkshire Cup and Yorkshire League are no longer going. The Championship is now the Super League and the Challenge Cup is still run every year.

So the last "real" championship (i.e. best in country) that they won was 40 years ago.
