OTTAWA - The moment many CFL fans wait for each off-season will arrive next week.

CFL commissioner Mark Cohon said Thursday the 2014 schedule will be released early next week after the “finishing touches” are put on it this weekend.

Since there are nine teams and an 18-game schedule, each squad will have two bye weeks. There will still likely be four games each week, with one team sitting on the sidelines.

That also means one week had to be added to the regular season. The 102nd Grey Cup will be played on Sunday, Nov. 30, at B.C. Place, which is a week later than normal.

Next week will be busy for the CFL if it plans to also release its schedule, as free agency kicks off on Tuesday at noon EST.
