How many trophies does Montreal have?

Montreal is home to many professional sports teams that have won numerous championships and trophies over the years. In this article, we will take a look at the major trophies and titles won by Montreal’s hockey, baseball, football, and soccer teams.

Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens are one of the most successful franchises in NHL history. Known as the Habs, they have won 24 Stanley Cup championships, more than any other team. Their first cup win came in 1916, and their most recent in 1993. Some key details on the Canadiens’ Stanley Cup wins:

  • First Stanley Cup win: 1916
  • Most recent Stanley Cup win: 1993
  • Total Stanley Cup wins: 24 (1916, 1924, 1930, 1931, 1944, 1946, 1953, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969, 1971, 1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1986, 1993)

In addition to their 24 Stanley Cups, the Canadiens have won many other trophies and titles over the years. Here is a summary:

Trophy/Title Number Won
Stanley Cup 24
Prince of Wales Trophy 24
Clarence S. Campbell Bowl 16
Presidents’ Trophy 3

The Canadiens have also had many individual player award winners, including Hart Memorial Trophy winners for league MVP. But when it comes to team trophies and titles, the above sums up the major ones the franchise has won over 100+ years of existence.

Montreal Alouettes

The Montreal Alouettes are a Canadian Football League team that have won 7 Grey Cup championships. Their first Grey Cup win came in 1949, and their most recent in 2010. Here is a summary of their Grey Cup wins:

  • First Grey Cup win: 1949
  • Most recent Grey Cup win: 2010
  • Total Grey Cup wins: 7 (1949, 1970, 1974, 1977, 2002, 2009, 2010)

In addition to their 7 Grey Cup titles, the Alouettes have also won the East Division 15 times. However, the Grey Cup is considered the biggest trophy in Canadian football, so those 7 championship wins are the major trophies the franchise has earned.

Montreal Impact

The Montreal Impact are the city’s professional soccer club. They have won a number of trophies over the years in various North American soccer leagues, including:

  • Canadian Championship: 4 (2013, 2014, 2019, 2021)
  • MLS Supporters’ Shield: 1 (2022 – shared with LAFC)
  • CONCACAF Champions League: 1 (2015)

The Canadian Championship is awarded annually to the best Canadian club, with the winner getting a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League. The Impact have won 4 Canadian titles since joining MLS in 2012.

The Supporters’ Shield goes to the MLS club with the best regular season record. The Impact shared this trophy with LAFC in 2022 for finishing with an equal points total.

And in 2015, the Impact won the CONCACAF Champions League title, defeating Mexican club Club América in the finals. This is the biggest international club trophy in North American soccer.

So in summary, the Impact have won 4 major trophies – the highlight being the continental Champions League title in 2015.

Montreal Expos

The Montreal Expos played in Major League Baseball from 1969 to 2004 before relocating and becoming the Washington Nationals. In their 36 seasons in Montreal, the Expos won no World Series titles or National League pennants.

So unfortunately, despite having some very talented teams, including the 1994 squad that had the best record in baseball before a strike ended the season, the Expos never managed to win a major MLB trophy or championship during their time in Montreal.


To conclude, here is a summary of the major trophies and titles won by Montreal’s professional sports teams:

  • Montreal Canadiens (NHL): 24 Stanley Cups, 24 Prince of Wales Trophies, 16 Clarence Campbell Bowl, 3 Presidents’ Trophies
  • Montreal Alouettes (CFL): 7 Grey Cup championships
  • Montreal Impact (MLS/Soccer): 4 Canadian Championships, 1 Supporters’ Shield, 1 CONCACAF Champions League title
  • Montreal Expos (MLB): No major trophies won

The Canadiens and Alouettes stack up well in their respective leagues with dozens of championships between them. The Impact have started to build a trophy case since joining MLS less than a decade ago. But the Expos unfortunately could not bring home a World Series or NL pennant during their time in Montreal.

Nonetheless, Montreal has a strong sports history and its major franchises have brought home their fair share of hardware over the years. Hockey and football have been where the city has seen the most success, with the Canadiens and Alouettes combining for 31 championships between them. If the Impact can continue to build on their early MLS success, Montreal’s trophy case will continue getting more crowded.
