CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie will provide an update on the league’s plans for 2020 during a virtual town hall.

Ambrosie will be live at 3 p.m. ET today. Season ticket holders will be able to ask questions.

Recently Ambrosie made a plea for up to $150 million in coronavirus financial aid from the Canadian government. He asked for $30 million in working capital to maintain operations through the crisis and estimated the league could need as much as an additional $120 million over the next two years — if the most negative scenarios, all of them, come true.

The CFL regular season was scheduled to kick-off on Thursday, June 11, but commissioner Randy Ambrosie has stated the schedule won’t start before the beginning of July. And it will likely be later as various cities have banned large gatherings throughout the summer until September.

If there is no season in 2020, it’s estimated the CFL could lose approximately $100 million.
