PR: ESPN2, ESPNEWS and ESPN+ To Deliver Live Coverage of the 2022 CFL Season in US

TORONTO (June 8, 2022) – ESPN2, ESPNEWS and ESPN+ are set to deliver live coverage of the Canadian Football League (CFL)’s complete 86-game schedule – from the season-opening kickoff to the final play of the 109th Grey Cup – to football fans across the United States.

Week 1 of the 2022 CFL season is set to air on ESPN+ with the Montreal Alouettes heading west to McMahon Stadium to face the Calgary Stampeders for Thursday Night Football on June 9. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers begin their title defence on Friday Night Football by welcoming the Ottawa REDBLACKS to town. A Saturday doubleheader will see the reigning East Division champion Hamilton Tiger-Cats play host to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, before the Edmonton Elks take on the BC Lions.

All roads – with stops set for Hall of Fame games, Labour Day matchups, a Thanksgiving Classic and holiday contests – lead to Saskatchewan on Sunday, November 20 for the 109th Grey Cup on ESPN2.

ESPN and the CFL have partnered to deliver the best of professional Canadian football since 1980, when the iconic U.S. network’s first-ever live football telecast featured the Toronto Argonauts and the Montreal Alouettes.

The complete 2022 CFL on ESPN schedule is attached and can be found online here.

    If the CFL would like to have a bigger US TV deal, then they would have to at least sign some high profile players like Johhny Manziel, Colin Kaepernick and Tim Tebow. They would also benefit from having a team or two in the US. Without marquee players and US teams the CFL can’t expect much more in terms of US TV revenue.
