TORONTO, July 14 /CNW/ - The Canadian Football League (CFL) proudly announced today that TELUS is its official national wireless provider. As part of a new two-year partnership, TELUS will bring CFL fans the ultimate fan experience across its mobile Internet platforms. Starting later this season, football fans can watch live games on the go, check stats in real time and watch highlights through the first-ever CFL mobile app. Through TELUS TV, CFL fans will now have access to full game replays available any time and on demand to ensure fans never have to miss a game.

"Our fans are constantly looking for new ways to connect with our league, and now through our partnership with TELUS, we can offer them more ways to connect with the CFL than ever before," said CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon. "We are especially excited to offer our fans the first-ever CFL mobile app allowing fans to connect with our league wherever they may be. This partnership is another demonstration of our commitment to our fans to be the most accessible league in sports."

TELUS CFL Mobile is the premier app available for Canadian football fans, bringing unprecedented access to the league. The app will offer all Canadian wireless customers access to scoreboards, stats, standings, schedules and news articles. TELUS customers will have exclusive access to the app's advanced features, including live video-streaming of all CFL games and exciting in-game, on-demand features, a special scoreboard experience with live stats and a chance to win a trip to this year's sold-out 98th Grey Cup in Edmonton. The TELUS CFL Mobile experience is coming soon to leading smartphones.

"TELUS' commitment to deliver the best communication experience for our customers, coupled with the deep-rooted legacy of the CFL and their dedicated fan-base, establishes a partnership to fuel the Canadian football experience and drive it into the next generation," said David Fuller, Chief Marketing Officer, TELUS Customer Solutions.
