INTERNeX Canada: Canadian Football !

The hockey seasons is over, but don´t worry because the football season has just started. By football, I mean Canadian football ( Europeans: Keep in mind that here they call soccer to our “football” in Europe).

Canadian football is a little bit different than american football. The Canadian team has 12 players rather than 11, is played on a field roughly 10 yards wider and ten yards longer between the end, and utilizes three downs per possession rather than four.

The top league is the professional eight-team  Canadian Football League (CFL). The CFL regular season begins in June, and playoffs for the Grey Cup are completed by mid-November.

In British Columbia, our professional team is BC Lions. They play their games in the BC Place, in downtown.

BC Lions Facts:

  • The name: The team was names for The Lions, a pair of mountain peaks overlooking Vancouver.
  • Uniform colors: Orange, Black and White.
  • Mascot: Leo the Lion.
  • Stadium: BC Place Stadium
  • Western regular season championships: 13—1963, 1964, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1999, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2011, 2012.
  • Western Division Championships: 10—1963, 1964, 1983, 1985, 1988, 1994, 2000, 2004, 2006, 2011.
  • Grey Cup championships: 6—1964, 1985, 1994, 2000, 2006, 2011.
  • Main Rivals: Montreal Alouettes (Labour Day Classic), Saskatchewan Roughriders
  • Fight song: “Roar, You Lions, Roar”

I highly recommend to go to watch a match, ’cause the entrances´price are really cheap!

Best,

Mercedes
