Hockey Canada and the CJHL elected to hold the tournament in Manitoba in honour of the 50th season of the Junior A championship, originally called the Manitoba Centennial Cup. The city of Portage la Prairie and Portage Terriers previously hosted the 2015 national championship, then known as the RBC Cup.[2]

The 2020 Centennial Cup, regional championships, and member league playoffs were cancelled on March 12, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]
