2021 Schedule

November 21, 2020

Though 2021 schedules are provided below in a number of formats, at the release of the 2021 CFL Schedule, not all information is known and available.

The Pre-season television schedule is unknown at present and will be added when published. The Canadian Regular Season broadcast schedule is assumed to be TSN, but certain games may be carried only on specific TSN channels rather than the full network. When more detailed information is available, the schedules will be republished. The American ESPN broadcast schedule is unknown at present and usually is released very close to the start of the Regular Season and is only known 1-2 months ahead of time. Updates will be published as additional games for broadcast on ESPN networks are known.

The Toronto Argonauts are indicating their Season Ticket packages are for 8 regular season games. This may indicate that their pre-season game, as has occurred for a few years, will not be sold to the public, instead tickets are distributed to school kids. The evidence against this happening is that the game is listed as occurring at BMO Field (normally pre-season games for youth have been hosted at Varsity Stadium) and the game is slated for a 7:30 PM ET start and the student game is usually hosted during school hours. That could mean the program has expanded due to the availability of BMO field in 2021. In addition, 1 regular season game is missing from the ticket packages, indicating the possibility of a neutral site game. The 2020 season had Toronto hosting Saskatchewan in Halifax for Touchdown Atlantic, and the opportunity for that occurs Aug. 28, 2021. To be clear, neither the CFL or the Argos have indicated there will be a TD Atlantic in 2021. It is also possible the Argonauts website is still reflecting 2020 season details for season tickets.

If there are any changes to game locations, dates or times due to these possibilities, schedules will be updated here to reflect the updated information as soon after these changes are known as possible or this notice will be removed once the current schedule is confirmed.

Television Schedules

Printable schedules are listed below. As stated in the FAQ, if you have a schedule you have the English language television schedule as all regular season and playoff games are televised on TSN through the end of the 2021 season after the initial agreement for the 2014-2018 seasons (with a network option for the 2019 season) was extended in 2015. (Note: The CFL/TSN announced an extension of their broadcast agreement partnership at Grey Cup 2019, but no details on length or other parameters have been made available).

The blackout policy may be in effect. The 2021 CFL schedule was published on Nov. 20, 2020.

To receive the CFL schedule on your smartphone calendar, tweet #Schedule to @CFL for the English calendar or #CalendrierLCF to @LCFca for the French calendar (requires Twitter account). Otherwise, use the CFL schedule calendar site or use the options below.

The CFL entered into a new multi-year agreement with ESPN in 2019 to carry CFL games in the US, with a minimum of 20 games including one division final and the Grey Cup being broadcast each season and the remaining games on ESPN+.
