CFL-Italy Global Combine set for March 6

The Italian Federation of American Football, FIDAF, has released the list of participants in the 2nd CFL-Italy Global Combine in Italy scheduled for March 6 at the Modena Vipers facility in Modena, Italy.

A total of 16 Italian players have been selected from all of the applications sent in and they will participate in the event to be monitored remotely by Canadian Football League representatives. Players picked from the group will then be eligible for the 2021 Global Draft. The CFL Combine is tentatively scheduled for March 26-28, 2021, although that could change depending on COVID-19 and health restrictions in Canada. All players who attended a 2020 Global Combine will remain as draft eligible players for the 2021 Global Draft.
