When asked if a hub city model had been discussed, MacLeod confirmed speculation.
“Absolutely, they have discussed possibly going to Hamilton or the Burlington area and I don’t think any option is off the table. Right now we are working with them. As you know right now they have a substantial request financially in with the federal government. And last week all the sport ministers across the country who have CFL teams met to see how we can best support the CFL. Obviously Ontario is very excited to host the Grey Cup next year, the 109th in 2021 and so we want to do everything we possibly can to make them viable and that includes having a conversation with our federal counterparts about how to do that.”
It appears that nothing is off the table when it comes to a Hub city model at this point and CFL fans should be encouraged that provincial Ministers of Sport are going to bat for the league federally.
