Canadian Football League
The Canadian Football League (CFL; French: Ligue canadienne de football, LCF) is a professional sports league in Canada. The CFL is the highest level of competition in Canadian football. The league consists of nine teams, each located in a city in Canada. They are divided into two divisions: four teams in the East Division and five teams in the West Division.
As of 2019, it features a 21-week regular season where each team plays 18 games with three bye weeks. This season traditionally runs from mid-June to early November. Following the regular season, six teams compete in the league's three-week divisional playoffs which culminate in the Grey Cup championship game in late November. The Grey Cup is one of Canada's largest annual sports and television events.
The CFL was officially founded on January 19, 1958. The league was formed through a merger between the Interprovincial Rugby Football Union (founded in 1907) and the Western Interprovincial Football Union (founded in 1936). - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Football_League
107th Grey Cup
On November 24, 2017, at the CFL's State of the League address, League Commissioner Randy Ambrosie stated that he was going to explore the possibility of having the Grey Cup during the third week of October. Reasons in favour of this were the weather being warmer in October as well as a potential television deal with the American-based NFL Network. Reasons against would be the increased overlap of the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup playoffs in May and June (since the season would also have to start one month earlier) as well as the CFL's playoffs overlapping Major League Baseball's playoffs in October. It was ultimately scheduled for its usual date (fourth Sunday of November) and will take place on November 24, 2019.
Leading up to the formal announcement, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Calgary Stampeders were the only clubs that publicly expressed interest in hosting the game. The Tiger-Cats' stadium, Tim Hortons Field was completed in 2014, but the city of Hamilton had not hosted a Grey Cup since the 84th Grey Cup in 1996. The main obstacle had been that multiple levels of government and the Tiger-Cats themselves have filed lawsuits against the construction firm due to the stadium construction delays and ongoing maintenance issues with the stadium itself. The club would also need support from Hamilton City Council. Temporary seating would have to be installed with the goal to raise seating capacity to 40,000. Tiger-Cats CEO, Scott Mitchell, had said that the team wanted to host this game in particular since it coincides with the 150th anniversary of the original Hamilton Football Club.
At the 2018 CFL Week, it was reported that the Stampeders were now the most likely host of the game. The team's president and general manager, John Hufnagel, confirmed that they had made a bid. The speculation was confirmed on April 25, 2018 in a formal announcement that Calgary had won the rights to host the game. It will mark the second time that the province of Alberta has hosted the Grey Cup in consecutive years, with Edmonton hosting the year prior (the two cities also hosted back-to-back games in 2009 and 2010). - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/107th_Grey_Cup
