TORONTO - The NFL Network will broadcast two Canadian Football League games per week this season, the sides announced Tuesday.
The NFL Network also has the option to show additional games during the regular season, playoffs and the Grey Cup championship game. The network had aired 14 CFL games last season.
"This is very positive news for our CFL fans living in the United States," said Michael Copeland, chief operating officer of the CFL. "And it's a very positive development for our football operations as it will continue to expose our product to prospects across the U.S."
The CFL's season kicks off next week, when the NFL Network will show a June 30 game between British Columbia and Montreal, and a July 2 contest between Toronto at Calgary.
