This will be the 67th season of modern Canadian professional football and officially the 63rd seaosn of the CFL. Each team will play 18 games across a 21 week season. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie has announced that there would now be no games until September, at the earliest, due to many provinces being in lockdown and preventing mass gatherings. This will be the first time, since the 2010 season, where there have not been any regular season games in June or July.
"This is an unusual and difficult time for everyone and our number one priority is the safety of our fans. At this point we remain optimistic that a CFL schedule will be played and a CFL game will be the perfect opportunity to re-unite our community. We want our most passionate fans to be part of that and we continue to operate with this goal in mind for the 2020 CFL regular season. As this situation is fluid, if anything changes we will be communicating to fans immediately. For the latest news, please head to cfl.ca/covid-19/"
