About the Canadian Football League
This is today's CFL: star athletes playing a great game in modern venues. This is the inaugural season of Winnipeg's Investors Group Field. It's the home of Grey Cup 101 this November in Saskatchewan. It is where the Ottawa REDBLACKS will debut in 2014, just as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats take the field in their beautiful new stadium. This is our league: proudly Canadian and steeped in tradition, but built for the future.
