2006 CFL Schedule

20 Week Schedule to Kickoff on June 16 in Montreal

Toronto, Ontario – The Canadian Football League announced today its 2006 game schedule, which kicks off in Montreal on June 16th with a Grey Cup rematch between the Edmonton Eskimos and the Montreal Alouettes.

The CFL's preseason begins May 28th in Winnipeg, and sees the return of the second edition of its Touchdown Atlantic exhibition game in Halifax, Nova Scotia with the Montreal Alouettes facing off against the Ottawa Renegades at St. Mary's Huskies Stadium on June 3rd.

Regular season action gets underway with head coaching debuts for Winnipeg's Doug Berry on Saturday June 17th and Ottawa's John Jenkins on Saturday June 24. In Week 4 Hamilton's Jason Maas returns to Commonwealth Stadium on Friday, July 7 to battle his former team, the Edmonton Eskimos. And should the football stars be aligned, two major records could fall in the during the first half of the regular season as Toronto's Damon Allen targets the pro-football career passing yards record and Winnipeg's Milt Stegall looks to break the CFL's all-time touchdown mark.

The 2006 season will see the traditions continue with its specialty weekend games and excitement of post-season gridiron play heightened with the Scotiabank East and West Semifinal and Championship games in early November. The 94th Grey Cup championship game will take place on November 19th in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Full details on the CFL's 2006 domestic and international broadcast schedules will be announced shortly.
