As the festive season approaches, the Canadian Football League (CFL) and Red Tag are gifting fans something to look forward to with the announcement of the 2024 CFL schedule. With the promise of exciting football action, season tickets have now hit the market for fans eager to secure their spot for the upcoming season.
CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie shares the league’s enthusiasm, “This past year was a benchmark for our game – we’re looking to elevate the fan experience even higher in 2024 with a schedule full of must-see events and matches.”
The 2024 CFL season lineup holds special significance as it will feature the crowning of the 111th Grey Cup champions at BC Place on Sunday, November 17. The road there will be marked by noteworthy events including the inaugural Touchdown Pacific and time-honoured Labour Day rivalries. Fans across Canada can anticipate a regular season filled with competitive matchups and historic moments.
Fulfilling fan wishes, the schedule includes:
– A balanced roster: Each team will visit every other league city at least once, allowing fans across all markets to witness the talent of every CFL team.
– Predictable timings: A Thursday-to-Sunday routine during summer and Friday-to-Saturday slots in the fall enable fans to schedule their game days with ease.
– Saturday playoffs: Aligning with growing viewer preferences and previous successes, the Division Semi-Finals and Finals will take place on the first two Saturdays of November.
Bell Media, through TSN and RDS, has secured exclusive broadcast rights within Canada, continuing as the domestic home of the CFL. In the United States, select games will be televised on CBS Sports Network, with the rest made available through the CFL’s online streaming platform, CFL.ca. Fans globally will also have access to CFL games outside of North American shores via the same streaming service.
