Main article: Sherbrooke Vert et Or football

The Sherbrooke Vert & Or U Sports football team began its second incarnation in 2003, thirty years after the first program was dropped in 1973.[1][2] The Vert & Or first began to play in 1971 in the Quebec Universities Athletic Association, but only played for three seasons. The program was dropped after the 1973 season due to a shift in philosophy as many francophone universities placed an emphasis on community involvement and intramural athletic activities as opposed to intercollegiate athletics. That philosophy has shifted back to intercollegiate sports as Université Laval, Université de Montréal and Sherbrooke each began programs in 1996, 2002 and 2003, respectively.
