CFL Pass

ESPN broadcast schedule for CFL games released

It's no secret that CFLpass has a soft spot for the US Expansion Era and its loyal group of American fans – so let’s just ignore how much of a disaster that was for the league financially, mmmkay?

Fans south of the border are going to have a lot of CFL to watch in summer 2015. Two weeks ago, the CFL announced that ESPN would be televising 20 games, including 17 regular season games, playoffs and the 103rd Grey Cup Championship: We just didn’t know *which* games.

Now we know! On the league’s official site, the schedule is here. But hey, we’ll go ahead and list ‘em right here; all the below games, with the exception of the Winnipeg at Hamilton game on August 9, which will be broadcast on ESPN News, will be shown on ESPN 2.
