The Canadian Football League (CFL) is set to award the 2020 Grey Cup on Thursday, February 21 at 6:30 p.m. ET which will be carried live on select TSN platforms.

The League’s Grey Cup Committee has reviewed bids for what will be the 108th Grey Cup from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Montreal Alouettes and Saskatchewan Roughriders, and their respective partners, with the final decision resting with the CFL Board of Governors.

“We want to thank all three organizations for first-class bids, any one of which would continue to take the Grey Cup game and festival to new heights,” said Randy Ambrosie, Commissioner of the CFL.

“We look forward to next Thursday and the excitement it will generate at the same time we plan to ‘Experience The Energy’ at what we know will be a great 107th Grey Cup presented by Shaw this November in Calgary.”

Saskatchewan Roughriders President & CEO Craig Reynolds:

"We want to thank the CFL and the Grey Cup committee for their diligence throughout the bid process. 

We feel like we put forth a strong and compelling bid to host the 2020 Grey Cup in our 110th anniversary year where we will be able to showcase Mosaic Stadium and Saskatchewan's incredible hospitality. 

We encourage our fans to come together on February 21st as we anxiously await the announcement.”

The 2020 Grey Cup  announcement can be watched live on TSN at 5:30pm Thursday, February 21.

Three Canadian Brewhouse locations will be hosting Grey Cup announcement watch parties – Regina Grasslands, Regina Eastgate, Stonebridge Saskatoon. Roughrider players are scheduled to be in attendance at each location.

Craig Reynolds will be lucky to have his job by then.
When he gave Chris Jones far too much power the catch phrase was 'sustained success.'
I think he missed that mark because we're rebuilding again.

The Roughriders under coattail riding gm Jeremy O'Day (previous assistant gm vp O'Day) are expected to improve on the 12-6 sustained success of the team Chris Jones left behind. Anything less than a 2019 Grey Cup championship under the O'Day regime will be deemed team failure. The building blocks (retained staff, neg player list) are in place, any "excuses such as yours will not be tolerated". It's now on Jeremy O'Day to sustain and improve the team further, as a 15-3 season is not out of reach. Let's see what the coattail riding gm Jeremy O'Day brings to the table that's been set by Chris Jones.

I guess the Brewhouse in Moose Jaw isn't good enough to have something like this. Nice move Riders!

Well Don, you're going to be disappointed.
My prediction is Riders 5th in west.
They'll be 6-12 and not win a game against a western team.
