TORONTO (June 28, 2018) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) unveiled an exciting update to the ‘CFL Football Frenzy’ game - a fast-paced shoot-out style arcade game available for download on mobile and tablet devices. Built for the young fan (8-14) or the young at heart, ‘CFL Football Frenzy’ allows players to create and customize their own avatar, collect card packs, and play offence, defence, and kick field goals.

Users can now download the latest version in both English and French language on Google Play and the App Store.

With Canada Day around the corner, Football Frenzy celebrates our national holiday in style. For a limited time, users can play against “Team Canada” in the game’s Quick Play mode.

The major update in the 2.0 version of CFL Football Frenzy is the introduction of the new “My Team” feature which allows users to earn or purchase card packs to build and upgrade their own team to create a 17-player roster. The cards represent more than 140 of our players from our league and are available in a base bronze card, silver and gold while select stars contain rare diamond cards to be collected in their set.

These cards can be purchased using gems (currency in the game) which can be earned by completing matches or via an in-app purchasing option.

Other game-play improvements include:

  • Users can fully control their quarterback to scramble out of the pocket
  • A new 8 vs. 8 format which means more ways to run and pass
  • More than ten new plays added to the playbook
  • Have your opportunity to win the 106th Grey Cup in Edmonton
  • Show the opposing team you have the loudest fan in the league to psyche out their kicker

With the overwhelming response from fans and gamers alike the CFL will continue to add new and engaging features in 2018.

CFL Football Frenzy was developed by Relish Interactive with design and development teams in Toronto, Ottawa, and Vancouver.
