CFL Announcement and XFL Jointly Suspend Discussions


CFL said partnership talks with XFL were jointly stopped.

In March, the CFL and XFL announced that they were ready to begin serious discussions about a potential partnership.

Neither side said who initiated the talks first, only that they had agreed to work together on ways to develop football.

“Our discussions with the XFL, exploring the potential for collaboration and innovation, have been positive and constructive,” CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in a statement on Wednesday. “While we remain open to finding new ways to work together in the future, we and our XFL counterparts have jointly decided not to pursue any formal arrangements at this time.

“We in the CFL are now focused on preparing for August 5 and the start of our 2021 regular season, which will culminate on December 12 with the 108th Gray Cup game in Hamilton. We look forward to this year and a bright future for our league. “

The CFL did not play in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is scheduled to start a 14-game campaign on August 5.

Training camps are scheduled to open on Saturday.

There was no immediate comment from the XFL.
