The CFL doesn't want to get in the way of the Toronto Raptors run to a possible NBA title.

With Game 6 happening Thursday in Oakland, it means there will be an overlap between that game and the 2019 season opener between the Riders and Hamilton.

As a result, the league has announced the start time of the game has been moved up by 30 minutes meaning it will now start at 5 PM Saskatchewan time.  With the Toronto-Golden State starting at 7 PM Saskatchewan time, it will allow for fans caught up in Raptors fever to catch the second half of the game.

Meanwhile, those who went to Mosaic Stadium for Game 5 (13,800 according to Evraz Place) can come back for Game 6 with the Rider game being shown first on the MAXTRON before being switched over.   Once again, the cost is free.
