The 2020 CFL season was canceled due to Covid-19, but now that cases are dwindling some good news is on the horizon for the 2021 season. The Ottawa Redblacks and the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats are looking to fill the stands come game time.
For Ottawa, the number is estimated to be around 15,000 fans, possibly more. The Redblacks already have 11,000 season-ticket holders with an additional 1,500 or more on a waiting list. While there have been some deferrals with former season-ticket holders, the numbers are not large enough to cause concern.
Season-ticket renewal rates are about 96%-97% of the pre-pandemic amount, and with the team selling flex packs, the team should see a good audience come kick off on August 28th. This is all of before any game tickets have been sold, as the team wants to see how many seats have already been taken, so tickets will be sold closer to August.
The 2021 Ottawa Redblack season kicks off on August 7th against the newly named Edmonton Elks. Their home opener is August 28th against the BC Lions.
