The decision to delay the game in consideration of the weather protocol was made by the league, both competing teams and the CFLPA.

The weather protocol was jointly developed by the CFL and the Management Council comprising Club Presidents to address in-game situations where the safety of players, officials and fans may be affected by inclement weather.

The league will continue to monitor the situation leading up to and during the game.
