CFL Doubtful Of Full Season, Exploring Grey Cup Contingencies

It is “highly unlikely” that the CFL will have an “on-time start, full preseason and 18-game regular season,” according to Dan Barnes of the TORONTO SUN. CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie said, “You don’t have to play a full 18 games to say that you had a regular season that justifies the playoffs and a Grey Cup game. But we haven’t landed on what the minimum number would be.” Barnes notes the season is scheduled to start June 11 and end with the Grey Cup in Regina on Nov. 22, but the pandemic has “forced the league to explore all sorts of contingencies, including whether the championship game could be moved indoors to B.C. Place Stadium in Vancouver in early December, if need be” (TORONTO SUN, 3/26).
