The Caledonian Cup was competed for annually in Montreal from 1905 to 1941. For many years winning the cup was symbolic of being recognized as being the city champions. It was seen as the blue ribbon cup of Montreal.
The cup was donated to the Caledonian Society of Montreal by Peter Lyall. The proceeds of the matches was awarded to the society.
For many years the P.Q.F.A. annually nominated the team to play the holders. In the 1930’s it was the oldest local soccer trophy still played for in Montreal.
