NEXT STEPS

Once reviewed and all questions have been  answer, the CFL will arrange an in-person/phone meeting to begin discussing next steps  and business terms.  Once terms have been  agreed  upon by both parties, a Licensing Agreement Term-Sheet will be provided by the CFL. Only after the Licensing Agreement Term- Sheet has been  confirmed by both parties, the company  can commence in the use of Canadian Football League trademarks.
