Early Days! Success! What’s Next!
These might be some of the statements you’d hear walking through CFL Fan Fair during CFL Week in Regina.
Who knew that our little prairie town could be a magnet to media and fans for an event that wraps around the Canadian Football League. The event proves to the country that this is the heartbeat of the league. Saskatchewan loves football and with the majestic Mosaic Stadium as the jewel of the province – we are glistening in the CFL sun beam!
WOW! Poetic or what!! Maybe the “OR WHAT!”
The Canadian Football League announcing they were bringing the travelling road show to Regina in March of 2017 was exciting, no one really knew what to expect. I watch the NFL Combines and while it is repetitive, it is also viewing that just kind of draws you in. And if you have a very good memory, you’ll be following these young men through their careers.
The stories of players started back when they first tried the game of football as children. Now, after levels and levels of playing the game, they are in the cue to make the next leap into the professional ranks. Here is where the showcase begins!
Our week of being immersed into a football culture goes even deeper, with CFL Week. You now have Canadians vying for that break into the Canadian Football League and potentially catching the eye of the NFL scouts.
It also marks the pinnacle of players careers. It brings to light those that have been apart of years of OUR joy at stadiums across Canada. And sometimes the depths of sadness after defeat.
Our favorites come home one last time before they go onto new ventures. There will be sadness, realization and joy!
Make time to head up to enjoy Mark’s CFL Week at Evraz Place. There’s lots to see, do and soak in!
