STATEMENT FROM THE CFL ON THE PASSING OF CFL GOVERNOR AND CALGARY STAMPEDER EXECUTIVE KEN KING

TORONTO (March 13, 2020) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) has released the following statement regarding the passing of CFL Governor and Calgary Stampeder Executive, Ken King:

Anyone  fortunate  enough to know Ken King would describe him as tough and determined. He was a fierce competitor, hard driving leader and, to all of us on the CFL Board of Governors, a loyal and giving friend. Even in the face of illness, his boundless passion for sport, love of business, and willingness to help others never waned.

I saw him just two weeks ago in Calgary. We talked about football and business. As usual, he was positive and encouraging. Afterwards, I thought how lucky I was to be able to spend time with him. How lucky we all were to know him.

I am certain all of his friends in our league are hoping some of that King sized toughness and determination — and some of his courage, too — rubbed off on the rest of us. We’re going to need it because we’re going to miss him.
