Global links are continuing to grow for the CFL. Not least because the league has announced another new partnership.
Now the CFL is partnering with the Confederação Brasileira de Futebol Americano (CBFA). This is the gridiron football federation of Brazil, and establishes the first such connection in South America.
This means Brazil has become the 13th football federation signing a co-operative agreement with the CFL.
Moving on with CFL 2.0
Since the announcement of the CFL 2.0 strategy, things have really moved up a gear in preparation for the 2020 season.
We have seen co-agreements signed between the CFL and a number of other countries’ American football organizations.
With this latest agreement the CFL now has reached out to organizations in South America, Europe, Asia, and Mexico.
From a small start
From the 2019 season the first global players started to try and find a place in the CFL.
Amavizca became the answer to a quiz question when his kick made him the first global player to score in the CFL.
To Bigger things
This year it has felt like the league is really giving the global payers idea traction. Whilst in 2019, the CFL’s nine clubs featured global players on their rosters this will expand to include up-to-45 global players across the CFL in 2020.
