According to a letter written by President and CEO of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes, Mario Cecchini, which has since been removed from the Montreal Alouettes website, the CFL has announced that
…exploratory discussions with the owners of the XFL will begin in order to study a potential collaboration in the years to come.”
Cecchini states further “The goal of these preliminary discussions will be to identify opportunities and possible improvements to enrich both our league and its 108 years of experience, and our football.”
Cecchini’s letter, which can be found on the Alouettes website, states that these talks are in the early stages and that these conversations will not be affecting the 2021 CFL season.
XFL Newsroom will stay updated on this collaboration as it develops.
XFL Owner Dany Garcia has now commented on the situation via Twitter.
