Homecoming game to be on national TV

On Wednesday the CIS announced a deal with Rogers Sportsnet to broadcast 4 CIS football games nationally over the CITY TV network. One of those games will be the University of Guelph’s September 24 Homecoming Game. It is a rematch of last year’s Yates Cup with the Gryphons taking on the Mustangs of Western Ontario.

Since 3 of the 4 games are OUA contests and the OUA remains without a television contract, this is an important announcement. There is still no word, however, on whether the OUA has found a broadcast partner the 2016 Yates Cup or any other playoff games.

I really hope the OUA can pull a rabbit out of their hat at the last minute like they did last year when they partnered with CHCH TV. I thought those OUA broadcasts were some of the highest quality CIS broadcasts I have seen. Light years better than their old OUAA Game of the Week broadcasts that we all loved back in the day.

I hope we see a huge and boisterous crowd for this year’s Homecoming Game. Tickets for that game, and the Gryphons other home games, can be purchased here.
