2020 COMBINE SEASON UNVEILED

Three regional events, participants and schedule announced ahead of CFL Combine in Toronto

TORONTO (February 20, 2020) – A trio of Regional Combines will welcome the nation’s elite football talents to display their skills for Canadian Football League (CFL) coaches, general managers and player personnel in hopes of earning their places at the CFL Combine presented by New Era from March 26-28 in Toronto.

The Ontario Regional Combine will take place on March 12 in Toronto, before Baie-D’Urfé, Que., hosts the Eastern Regional Combine on March 13. The Western Regional Combine on March 20 in Edmonton will conclude the trio of events, marking the eighth year-in-a-row in which the league has hosted the regional showcases of skill.

In addition to the attendees who advance through the Regional Combines, the CFL Combine will feature the top prospects eligible for the 2020 CFL Draft, as well as, the top global players hoping to be selected at the 2020 CFL Global Draft. The first 24 global player invitees have been announced and additional international participants will be named following the three remaining CFL Global Combines in Denmark, Brazil and Mexico.

Media members planning to attend any of the four combines must RSVP to Lucas Barrett at lbarrett@cfl.ca at least two days prior to the event. Prospects will also be made available for phone interviews.
