TORONTO (AP) — Canadian Football League Commissioner Randy Ambrosie says the league remains committed to returning in 2021 but is leaving the door wide open regarding exactly how that will look. The CFL did not play in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Plans for an abbreviated season were shelved in August after the league failed to secure an interest-free loan from the federal government. The CFL unveiled a full 18-game schedule for all nine teams last November, one that Ambrosie said remains on track for 2021. However, the commissioner added the league is keeping all of its options — including teams playing fewer than 18 games — open.
