Status of CFL Stadiums
This section contains the latest status of stadium improvement or replacement projects in CFL and potential CFL cities. The Status of CFL Stadiums was inspired as a living status document by cfldb's earlier post on the State of the Stadiums. The National Post also did a State of the Stadiums article in August, 2010.
The section was recently re-organized with a page for each city. Please follow the links below for specific information on projects and stadiums in each city.
