The 2024 CFL schedule has officially been announced. The season kicks off on Thursday, June 6, 2024 with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers hosting the Montreal Alouettes.

The Canadian Football League will again play their normal, 21-week regular season in 2024. Each CFL team will play an 18-game schedule with three bye weeks.

16 of the 18 games are played against common opponents, once at home and once on the road, essentially a same season home-and-home series. The two remaining games are rotated each season.

The CFL plays a three-week preseason where each teams plays twice, this season from Monday, May 20 through Saturday, June 1. The Saskatchewan Roughriders host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the first preseason contest on May 20.

“This past year established new highs for our great game and set new benchmarks for what fun, fast and entertaining could be,” said CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie. “We couldn’t be more excited to carry forward that momentum and energy into 2024 with brand new events, bigger thrills and more can’t miss, unforgettable moments.”

All CFL games are televised in Canada via TSN in English and via RDS in French. In the United States, fans can watch select games via CBS Sports Network, while the remaining contests will be streamed via CFL+.

Would like to see Canadian Football be shown on regular over the air Television in United States especially on CBS & continue be simulcast by Canadian Television.

According to the Viceroy of Magical Affairs, the head of the Ministry of Magical Affairs of the Dominion of Canada, the field is too long to be able to appear on regular over the air TV in the US.

With that scheduling format, is the CFL getting rid of the east and west division for next year?
Also, too many teams make the CFL playoffs, should be 4, even 5 would be stretching it. 6 is too many.

Doubt they change that format, they’ve been using it for a zillion years. The CFL is much like the old 21-team NHL, when 16 teams made the playoffs. It’s just what they do. And the divisions will stil be intact. If you ever looked at the geography of the CFL, those teams are split perfectly. It’s like they’re two different countries.

As a Montreal Alouettes Fan I would to see a CFL expansion in Maritine Atlantic Providences 114% with you on that.
