Four Days of Grey Cup: CFL, CDIC partner to air iconic championship games

TORONTO — On the heels of the Canadian Football League’s announcement of Grey Cup Unite, and CDIC are expanding the content offering leading into what would have been Grey Cup week with an 8-game lineup of classic post-season contests for fans to watch.

Condensed into a 40-minute format, CFL in 40, presented by CDIC  will air two classic Division Semi-Final games this week, a pair of Division Final nail-biters next week and will run four straight nights of archived classics.

The series kicks off this Thursday with a crossover thriller from 2009 when the BC Lions halted a ferocious comeback by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at one of the CFL’s jewels in Ivor Wynne Stadium. Semi-Final week is followed by a list of games that feature Rocket Ismail’s momentous kick return, Greg Ellingson’s miracle catch in Ottawa and Montreal’s improbable Ice Bowl win over a powerhouse from Edmonton in 1977.

Four iconic Grey Cup games add to an already jam-packed week of CFL content the Week of November 19th, culminating with a Sunday night re-broadcast of, what is considered by many to be the greatest Grey Cup of all time, the Saskatchewan Roughriders walk-off victory over Hamilton in the 1989 game.

Here is a complete list of CFL in 40, presented by CDIC programming:
