The rosters have been set for the 2024 East-West Bowl, which is scheduled for Saturday, May 11 at the University of Waterloo.

This year’s talent showcase features the top 100 players across U Sports who are eligible for the 2025 CFL Draft. At least three players from each of the 27 programs across the country have been selected to participate.

Marco Iadeluca, the head coach of the Vanier Cup-winning Université de Montreal Carabins, will oversee Team East, while Blake Nill, the head coach of the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, will guide Team West.

A coaches clinic will precede the game on May 10-11 at Warriors Field. The event will be led by U Sports coaches from across the country and include presentations regarding leadership, player positional skill development, rules, officiating, team culture, and offensive and defensive systems.

“The Waterloo Warriors, with the support of our Athletic Department, LIT, and our football program, are excited for the opportunity to host this annual weeklong all-star event,” said Warriors head coach Chris Bertoia in a statement. “Our intent is for U Sports football student-athletes and coaches to have an outstanding experience at the University of Waterloo.”

The rosters for the game are as follows.
