There will be no Grey Cup handed out this year. The C-F-L has cancelled its 2020 season.
The league couldn’t solve a number of issues in an effort to try to salvage a season, including financing. The federal government turned down a request for a $30-million-dollar, interest-free loan to stage an shortened 2020 season. League officials announced in late July they had chosen Winnipeg as a hub city.
Premier Doug Ford, a big football fan, was asked about the decision moments later.
“Let’s pray that they come back next year, stronger than ever,” said Ford. “The league is so important in so many parts of this country.”
