History[edit | edit source]

The Lions were known as the Antigonish Bulldogs for 40 years. After it was decided that operating in Antigonish, Nova Scotia was no longer viable, the franchise was sold to a Metro Halifax group and then relocated to that city in the summer of 2008. The team's nickname was announced on August 22. The name is a tribute to the successful Halifax Lions teams of the 1980s.

In 2010, the team was relocated to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and renamed the Metro Marauders.
