Ticket drive announced for prospective CFL team
Fans can purchase season ticket deposits for an Atlantic CFL team.
The announcement was made by Maritime Football Limited Partnership (MFLP), with the support of Canadian Football League Commissioner, Randy Ambrosie at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax.
It’s part of an ongoing process to gauge interest for a CFL franchise in Atlantic Canada.
“This is a big day for Halifax and Atlantic Canada,” said Anthony Leblanc, founding partner of Maritime Football Limited Partnership. “It’s a day football fans have been waiting for and an important step toward bringing another professional sports team to this region.”
Available for purchase now, season ticket deposits are $50 per package and the deposit will place fans on a priority list for season ticket membership and seat selection on a first-come, first-served basis.
In addition, founding fans who make a deposit for season tickets will be eligible to participate in a Name the Team contest. This exclusive group will be asked to vote on name options, or submit their own preferred name. The team name will be announced at a special event during Grey Cup weekend later this month.
Ticket prices will be announced well in advance of the club’s inaugural season. Partners aim to have players on the field as early as 2021.
