BetRegal also revealed that Canadian Football Hall of Fame quarterbacks Damon Allen and Matt Dunigan will be part of the ambassador group, BetRegal Legends.
The company will participate in the league’s marketing strategies beginning this season. It will have media assets throughout the playoffs and Grey Cup, including the postseason jersey patch, partner of the Grey Cup Festival, as well as presenting sponsor for exclusive experiences during Grey Cup weekend.
Both the league and BetRegal will have updates on more fan facing initiatives for the 2021 CFL Season. This will include a free-to-play sportsbook experience, CFL squares and the Race to the 108th Grey Cup, a game that will allow fans to pick winners and predict scores to win BetRegal and CFL prizing.
The company will also engage CFL communities by celebrating and rewarding community MVP’s who have helped their communities through the pandemic.
The CFL kicks off its 2021 season on Thursday, August 5, when the defending Grey Cup Champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a rematch of the 107th Grey Cup.
Opening Weekend also features the Saskatchewan Roughriders hosting the BC Lions on Friday, August 6 and a doubleheader on Saturday, August 7, with the Calgary Stampeders welcoming the Toronto Argonauts and the Edmonton Elks hosting the Ottawa REDBLACKS.
