Grey Cup Not On American television
The Grey Cup, a pinnacle event in Canadian football, will not be broadcasted on American television networks this year, marking a significant shift in the CFL’s broadcast strategy. Instead, the league is focusing on its own streaming service, CFL+, making the championship game accessible to U.S. consumers for free.
Despite the CFL’s lucrative deal with CBS Sports Network, which promised enhanced marketing of the league, the network did not include the Grey Cup in its 34-game package. This shift signifies the league’s commitment to its own streaming platform, CFL+, developed in partnership with Genius Sports.
The decision reflects the CFL’s awareness of its viewer demographics, as American interest in the CFL has traditionally been lower compared to Canada. The 109th Grey Cup, for instance, saw a viewership of 158,000 in the U.S., a significant contrast to over 3.1 million in Canada.
As the league continues to analyze its viewer data and streaming numbers, the focus remains on the upcoming championship game, where the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Montreal Alouettes promise to deliver an unforgettable match for fans worldwide.
