The Canadian Football League (CFL) or League de Football Canadien (LCF) plays Canadian Football and began in 1958, having formerly been a member of the Canadian Football Council (CFC), which it withdrew from to form the CFL. It traces its history back to the 1880s. It remains the only Football League in North America that has its teams solely based in Canada.

The CFL was formed from a merger between the Interprovincial Rugby Football Union founded in 1907 and the Western Interprovincial Football Union founded in 1936.
TEAMS
There are currently 9 teams based in major Canadian cities with a 10th called Atlantic Schooners (Halifax,NS) planned to join in the future. Ottawa RedBlacks joined in 2014.
SEASON
Each team plays a series of pre-season games, in May-June, before competing in a 18-game/21-week regular season including 3 bye weeks, between June and November. The regular season is followed by the Playoffs which end in November with the Grey Cup.
CANADIAN FOOTBALL

Unlike the NFL, Canadian Football is played by teams of 12 players. The field is 110 yards long and 65 yards with 20 yard end zones, compared to American Football which is 100 yards long by 53 1/3 yards wide and has 10 yard end zones. A team has 3 downs (not 4 like in American Football) to make 10 yards/score or they lose the ball and where the Offence becomes the Defence.
