CFL governors expected to vote to delay the start of the 2021 season: report

The Canadian Football League key stakeholders are meeting virtually on Tuesday.

According to TSN reporter Dave Naylor: The CFL governors meet today at which time they are expected to vote to delay the start of the 2021 season. I’m led to believe a formal announcement may not come until Wednesday.

The CFL unveiled its 2021 schedule in November with the pre-season slated to begin on Sunday, May 23. The regular season is scheduled to get underway on Thursday, June 10 and the Grey Cup is currently set for Sunday, November 21 in Hamilton.

The league office and players’ union began meetings during the second week of February with a focus on playing football in 2021. The two sides have submitted return to play health and safety plans to various levels of government in Canada.

The CFL Players’ Association has repeatedly requested clarity regarding the start of the 2021 season, which the CFL has failed to provide. Commissioner Randy Ambrosie has promised plenty of football during the current year, but there has been no hard commitment as to when the league might kick-off.
