Canadian Football League cancels 2020 season
The Canadian Football League revealed the overall shutdown of the 2020 season Monday, ending the chase of the 109-year-old Grey Cup for the nine-team league established in 1958.
The CFLs service design relies greatly on ticket sales instead of television, other media rights and sponsorship money. With public events in Canada restricted to 250 individuals or less in the majority of provinces, the capacity for a fanless, quarantined competition at a fixed website in Winnipeg did not represent an economically sound investment.
” Our league guvs decided today it is in the finest long-term interests of the CFL to focus on the future,” CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in a declaration from the league. “We are definitely committed to 2021, to the future of our league and the pursuit of our vision of a bigger, more powerful, more global CFL.”
