The 2020 Canadian Football league is canceled Monday due to pandemic, marking the first year since 1919 the Grey Cup won’t be awarded.

Commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in a statement the decision was in the “best long-term interests” of the league.

“We are absolutely committed to 2021, to the future of our league and the pursuit of our vision of a bigger, stronger, more global CFL,” he said.

The commissioner has said the league lost more than $15 million last season.

“Even with government funding and a new CBA, our owners and community-held teams would have had to endure significant financial losses to play in 2020,” Ambrosie said.
