Edmonton loves its football. So grab a drink, a hot dog, and join the fans at Commonwealth Stadium as they watch their Eskies march their way towards a Grey Cup.

The Canadian Football League plays with different rules to our American cousins. With only three downs to score a touchdown, you’ll catch some spectacular plays.

Join the locals as they stand and sing the “Edmonton Eskimos Fight Song”: “The Green and Gold is bold and when we’re done, we’ll tell the world we’re proud of Edmonton and the Edmonton Eskimos!”

The Eskies live for rivalries, so be sure to be on hand for the Battle of Alberta where they battle the Calgary Stampeders. Look for painted faces in stands, and a historic battle on the field.

The regular season runs from late June to November, after which you can bundle up for three weeks of thrilling CFL playoffs.
