Lalji: Start of CFL season is the focus right now, but there's a firm end date
The Canadian Football League is looking at a number of scenarios as they look ahead toward the summer in the wake of COVID-19.
According to TSN Football Insider Farhan Lalji, the CFL is not considering moving the Grey Cup set for Nov. 22 in Regina at this time, but what constitutes a "credible season" is being worked through. A shortened eight-game season has been discussed with teams playing one another once and beginning on Labour Day.
