A STATEMENT FROM CFL

TORONTO (June 28, 2020) -- The Canadian Football League (CFL) released the following statement:

We in the CFL hold high the Diversity Is Strength banner. Our league makes no claim on perfection but it does strive to be inclusive, to accept and indeed celebrate our differences, and to respect and honour human rights.

There is no place in our league for commentary that disparages people on the basis of their religion, race, gender or sexual orientation.

As Pride Month continues, we stand with the LGBTQ+ community. We all need to say no to hate and yes to love.

Governors representing the CFL’s nine member clubs voted in June to return to play after a hiatus forced by the COVID-19 pandemic. The first game of the new season on August 5th is a rematch of the 107th Grey Cup, featuring the defending champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers hosting the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. It will be the first CFL game since November 2019. To stay up to date with news, analysis and more from around the league, visit CFL.ca
