BT sport to show CFL action in 2018 for the fourth year in a row.

BT sport to show CFL action in 2018 for the fourth year in a row.

Sports fans in the United Kingdom and Ireland will once again be able to catch all the Canadian Football League (CFL) action on television with BT Sport, for the fourth consecutive season, the CFL have announced.

Fans in the UK won’t get to see the pre-season games, other than highlights over at cfl.ca and we have yet to see a full schedule of which games will be shown live throughout the 2018 season.

We do know however that BT Sport will broadcast CFL games live starting with the regular season opener on June 14th. The BT Sport telecasts will feature production and commentary teams from TSN, ‘Canada’s Sports Leader’.

Live CFL on TSN broadcasts are led by a broadcast team that features play-by-play announcers Chris Cuthbert, Rod Black, and Gord Miller. Analysis is provided by ex CFL pros Glen Suitor, Duane Forde, and Canadian Football Hall of Famer Matt Dunigan.

The 2018 season will be the CFL’s 61st. Kicking off with Edmonton at Winnipeg and culminating in the Grey Cup on November 25th in Edmonton. If it is anything like as exciting and engrossing as the 2017 season then fans are in for a treat.

For fans in the UK bemoaning that it’s ‘Only June’ and we’re so far away from the NFL season this is the perfect chance to watch and maybe get into a fun, fast paced professional league that has plenty to offer. If you want to see fast-moving, entertaining football whilst the NFL and college football are still a month or two away, then why not give the CFL a go?

One thought on “BT sport to show CFL action in 2018 for the fourth year in a row.

  1. Great to see a UK site pushing the CFL, ironically enough I’ve only found this site as a link popped up on my Twitter timeline from the @CFL_News account.
    I really appreciate that we can watch the CFL on BTSport (format is the same as College Football no messing around just a direct feed TSN) but remember you can also find live football locally with your local BAFA (British American Football league) team.
