Another day another country added to the CFL’s 2.0 global strategy.
The Austrian American Football Federation is the latest to partner with the CFL. Commissioner Randy Ambrosie and the AAFF released a joint statement.
“Following a productive day of information sharing and discussion here in Vienna, we have reached an agreement to work together to grow the game in both of our countries. We share a passion for creating opportunities for Austrian players to play at the highest levels and for Canadian players to take advantage of the fantastic opportunity that is football in Austria. With football season in Austria set to start on March 16, the top players from that country will not be able to participate this spring in the CFL’s National Combine for top Canadian prospects and players from around the gridiron football world. But we look forward to future years and all that we can achieve together.”
The Liga de Futbol Americano in Mexico, German Football League and French American Football Federation are already on the list.
Ambrosie plans to hold meetings with football leaders from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. That will continue Ambrosie’s vision for growing the CFL globally and striving to double league revenues as he stressed at the 2018 Grey Cup in Edmonton.
Ambrosie explained in detail the thought process behind CFL 2.0 on the 3DownNation podcast.
