The 1919 Memorial Cup final was the first junior ice hockey championship of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. The George Richardson Memorial Trophy champions University of Toronto Schools of the Ontario Hockey Association in Eastern Canada competed against the Abbott Cup champions Regina Pats of the South Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League in Western Canada. In a two-game, total goal series, held at the Arena Gardens in Toronto, Ontario, the University of Toronto Schools won the 1st Memorial Cup, defeating Regina 29 goals to 8.

The final game was delayed by nearly an hour-and-a-half. There were parades in Toronto the same day — for Canadian regiments just returning home from the First World War — and fans were late to their seats because of them.[1]
