A STATEMENT FROM THE CANADIAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE

TORONTO (July 30, 2021) --  The Canadian Football League (CFL) released the following statement on the passing of Montreal Alouettes co-owner Sid Spiegel.

The Canadian Football League is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Montreal Alouettes co-owner Sid Spiegel. Sid and his son-in-law Gary Stern  made a strong commitment to one of our great franchises at an important time in its history and have tackled the challenge and opportunity before them with passion and enthusiasm. We regret we did not have the time to know Sid better, this giant of a man and true entrepreneur who built a business empire with legendary drive and intelligence, and a family that now includes children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Our condolences go out to those who knew him best and loved him deeply, and to everyone positively touched by his remarkable life, which certainly includes all of us in the CFL family.
