Yesterday the CFL Board of Governors voted to start their 2021 season August 5th, as originally targeted. When the news was announced via press release, it was also noted that the league would release the schedules the following day. Which leads us to today.
Prior to the vote, Ontario Official Lisa MacLeod announced that there was an accelerated framework being put in place that would allow fans to attend sporting events. During which, she specifically mentioned the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Ottawa Redblacks. A lot of fans online have pointed out that she specifically did not mention the Toronto Argonauts. I’m sure we’ll learn more in the coming days.
Well, as expected, the CFL has now officially released the 2021 schedule in full!
