CFL Commissioner Talks US TV Deal, Halifax Expansion, and Montreal Ownership

In a recent interview with TSN’s Farhan Lalji, CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie discussed the league’s US television deal with CBS Sports, the potential expansion into Halifax, and the impact of local ownership in Montreal.

Ambrosie shared his excitement about the CBS Sports deal, saying, “We’re working on a number of very interesting ideas, talking to our governors about where we go. Obviously, we’re thinking about the long term strategy for our broadcast rights and this anchor relationship with CBS is going to let us do some interesting things.” He expressed that the league is exploring various strategies to monetize and distribute the remaining games.

Regarding the Halifax expansion, Ambrosie revealed, “There has been a lot of interest and the conversation really has reenergized in the past few months.” He explained that the Board of Governors is committed to the long-term growth of the league, making expansion a priority, and exploring new approaches to stadium designs and capacity.

When discussing the impact of local ownership in Montreal, Ambrosie expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming season with Pierre Carl Palladeau as the owner: “We get to launch this football season with what I believe is the strongest ownership group in the league’s history. And Pierre Carl is a fantastic part of that new future that we created for ourselves.”

In summary, the main points of the interview include the CFL’s partnership with CBS Sports for US television distribution, the reenergized interest in Halifax expansion, and the positive impact of local ownership in Montreal, all of which contribute to the league’s overall growth and development.
