TORONTO -- The CFL will have more of its games broadcast in the U.S. this season.

The league announced Friday that NBC Sports will carry 14 regular-season games, the conference finals and Grey Cup. Last year, NBC broadcast nine regular-season contests, the playoffs and 100th Grey Cup.

"We're very pleased to partner again this year with NBC Sports Network to deliver our high-scoring and exciting brand of football to our fans south of the border," CFL president Michael Copeland said in a statement. "It's important for our league and has a significant impact on player recruitment, and gives fans an opportunity to follow some of their former favourite collegiate players."

NBC Sports Network will carry the CFL season opener Thursday night when the Winnipeg Blue Bombers host the Montreal Alouettes at new Investors Group Field. The American broadcaster will conclude its Canadian football coverage with the Grey Cup game Nov. 24 in Regina.
