Als start preseason in Halifax, hold last home game at Big O
The Canadian Football League unveiled the 2006 regular season schedule and as announced yesterday, the Alouettes will start preseason in Halifax. The Alouettes are planning to hold their last home game at Olympic Stadium in the â€œAlsâ€™ Fan Dayâ€? ddedicated to minor football for a fourth consecutive season.
On Friday June 16, Montreal fans will have the privilege to witness a Grey Cup re-match when the Alouettes and Edmonton Eskimos will battle at Percival Molson Stadium in the CFLâ€™s first regular season game of 2006.
Like every year, the Alouettes will be facing each West Division team twice, once at Percival Molson Stadium, once out west. They will face the Ottawa Renegades three times in regular season and twice in preseason, will play the Toronto Argonauts three times and will battle the Hamilton Tiger-Cats twice in regular season. The Alouettes will host these same Tiger-Cats at Olympic Stadium on October 21.
Every Alouettesâ€™ game will be broadcast on the radio in English on CJAD and in French on CKAC. The schedule for the television broadcasters (RDS, TSN et CBC) will be released early next week.
