New CFL Season: The Canadian Football League came back last year to play a full season and crown a Grey Cup champion after losing its season because of the Pandemic and facing a financial crisis.
The regular season didn’t kick off until August due to the lingering economic crisis and the schedule was cut to fourteen games per team and the Grey Cup Game did not happen until December.
Sponsorship sealed ..

The CFL is hoping for a return to better days on and off the field with a new labor deal in place and its full eighteen-game season in its three years set to kick off on Thursday night.
