Maritime Football Limited has registered as a business in Nova Scotia and also re-registered for the Atlantic Schooners trademark.
Anthony LeBlanc is listed as the president, CEO and director while Gary Drummond is vice president. They are heading a group that made a pitch to the board of governors for a CFL franchise in Halifax. Part of that proposal was to request a conditional team be awarded in 2018, with games to begin in 2020.
The CFL awarded a conditional franchise to Halifax in 1982 – it was named the Atlantic Schooners – but financing for a stadium never came about. The league played regular-season games in Moncton, N.B., in 2010, 2011 and ’13.
The Schooners trademark has been formalized by the Canadian government.
And if you go look up the registrant, “3312738 Nova Scotia Limited” – here they are, Maritime Football Limited. Ladies and Gentlemen, Your Atlantic Schooners! https://t.co/rKboERM5yW pic.twitter.com/FbdWoORiSy
