CFL: 10 Days Till Opening Match

The last time we saw the CFL active with the gridiron was in 2019, when the Winnipeg Blue Bombers hoisted the Grey Cup. The confetti rained, and the Mcmahon stadium was a cauldron of celebration, well that would be the last time we saw players in competition. The coronavirus pandemic would strike, and the 2020 season was called off until now. It is time to put on the jerseys again and get more information about bet365 in Canada because the 2021 season will kick off on August 6th. The CFL is back!

It has been two years since the last CFL game and both fans and players are itching to get back on the pitch. It will be fun, especially with fans back in the stadiums. The teams are ramping up their preparations, with training camps already open. The front offices are making moves to put themselves in contention, and the counters are back to zero. After such a long layoff, there is no momentum, renewed motivation, and desire to win, which will bode well for fans and spectacle. There will be no real underdogs, just who can show they want it more.

The season kicks off with the defending champions taking on the very team that could well be their main contender this season, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers beat the Tiger-Cats the last time the two teams met, for the 107th Grey Cup. It will be revenge and a notice for the Tiger-Cats, while the Blue Bombers will be out to show that they won on merits and not chance.

The BC Lions will make the trip to face the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the second game of the new season, on Saturday, August 7th. Sunday will be the third day of opening round matches, with two games to close the first weekend. The Toronto Argonauts will visit the Mcmahon Stadium and Ralph the Dog to take on the Stampeders. Calgary would be disappointed to not have been able to reach the championship game at home, but this season should see them try to right the ship.

The last game of the weekend will see the Edmonton Elks host the Ottawa Redblacks. The Elks are one of the most talked-about teams leading into the new season. The Elks have made major changes to their roster and front office as they look to step into a new era of promise and success.

Week two will see the same home teams holding down the fort again, with the Montreal Alouettes taking on the Elks in their own first game of the season. Nine teams in the league mean one team will always have a bye week. The Alouettes will have the first bye week of the season, while the Redbalcks take that spot in the second week.

It should be a fun new season!
