XFL To Explore Future Opportunities With The CFL

The Canadian Football League just announced that there has been exploratory discussions with the XFL to study a potential collaboration in the future.

These discussions are just preliminary and have been ongoing for a couple of months. Here is the statement from Mario Cecchini President of the Montreal Alouettes.

“The Canadian Football League has just announced that exploratory discussions with the owners of the XFL will begin in order to study a potential collaboration in the years to come.

As fans, it is important for us to keep you informed, even if this remains at an exploratory stage, and will not affect the 2021 season. As the pandemic diminishes, we hope that the league will get the green light to play a full season this year; A season on which we are fully focused.

The goal of these preliminary discussions will be to identify opportunities and possible improvements to enrich both our league and its 108 years of experience, and our football.

We are in the very early stages of these discussions, and you will be the first informed of any future advancements, if any occur. We reinforce that we are proud of the CFL and its history, and that changes would only take place if they were to improve the daily lives of our teams, players, partners and fans.

I encourage you to visit our web site to consult the declarations of our commissioner Randy Ambrosie, and of the two co-owners of the XFL, Dany Garcia and Jeffrey Pollack, who specify the goals of these discussions.

As we wait to see each other at the stadium as soon as possible in 2021, I want to thank you again for your support. Continue to take care of yourself.”

We understand that there was a Letter of Intent between the XFL and CFL. There are some rumblings that this partnership could impact the XFL’s plan for a 2022 season. We will keep you posted and this story develops.

Update – the CFL post was taken down but the story is already out.
