After a bit of a delay to coordinate a switch by the Hamilton Tiger Cats to a stadium at the University of Guelph while their existing stadium (Ivor Wynne) is demolished to make way for a new facility and overcome congestion at Rogers Stadium where the Toronto Argonauts play their home games, the CFL announced its 2013 schedule today.
You can view the schedule in its entirety here (be sure to use the right time zone to get the start times for Regina). For Rider fans, the Green & White open the season in Edmonton against the Eskimos on June 29. The team’s first home game is against the Calgary Stampeders on July 5.
With two four-team divisions, the CFL employs an unbalanced schedule. Last year, the Riders played the B.C. Lions four times. This year, they tackle the Eskimos four times, the last game being at home on Nov. 2 to close out the 2013 season.
One other highlight of note: after a one year break the league will be returning to Atlantic Canada for a game in Moncton, NB on Sept. 21 that will feature the Montreal Alouettes against the Hamilton Tiger Cats.
