CFL delays 2021 season start due to COVID-19

Global News published this video item, entitled “CFL delays 2021 season start due to COVID-19” – below is their description.

The Canadian Football League (CFL) announced Wednesday it would delay the start of its 2021 season until Aug. 5, as the country continues to grapple with a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
