The Canadian Football League often returns with the addition of a 10th team to its Halifax circuit, but could Quebec become an expansion option?
CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie made no secret during an interview with our colleague Matthieu Proulx as part of the show before the Gray Cup game between the Montreal Alouettes and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers that he wants to explore the field soon with the city of Quebec to evaluate the possibility of adding an organization.
“We haven’t had formal talks on that topic, but we say to ourselves that it’s time to go and knock on certain doors in Quebec and start talks,” the commissioner pointed out.
“Quebec City is truly magnificent. It is a good football and sports city in general. A rivalry with the Alouettes would certainly be one of the most incredible in our league’s history,” Ambrosie mentioned.
Ambrosie returned to the Halifax expansion project. Further talks should take place at the end of the season to see if the project can move forward.
“We are in very serious discussions with a potential team owner in Halifax. We will continue the talks after the Gray Cup,” he summarized.
