200+ AMERICAN PLAYERS

Of the 45-man dress roster, a team may have up to 23 American players and 2 players who are from outside of North America (Global players). The remaining players are Canadians.

GLOBAL MARKET

American players enter the League via Free Agency or the Negotiation List. The Negotiation List takes the place of drafting American players. 8 of our 9 CFL cities are a two hour or less drive to the US border and all cities fly direct flights to the US.

$100K PLUS

Average salaries for players are over $100,000 CAD with many starters making considerably more (starting QB’s make in the $300k – $500k CAD range). Guaranteed contract options for veteran players.

NFL TRYOUT

Each year in December through early February, every CFL player has the ability to try out and sign with an NFL Club. If signed by an NFL team, the player is allowed to opt out of his remaining CFL contract, regardless of how many years he has signed for.

7 MONTH CFL SEASON

Training Camps open in May for three weeks of camp and the season concludes in mid-November with our Championship Game, the Grey Cup. During the regular season, players are only mandated to participate in team activities for 4 1⁄2 hours per day.

REVENUE SHARING & OTHER OPPORTUNITIES

Revenue sharing potential with players. Pension program for players includes financial contributions from CFL teams. Injury & Medical insurance coverage for players and families. Open work permits. Bonuses for Playoff & Grey Cup performance.
