Canadian Football League

The Canadian Football League is a professional sports league in Canada. The CFL is the highest level of competition in Canadian football. The league consists of nine teams, each located in a city in Canada. 

‘ DIVISIONS ‘

They are divided into two divisions: four teams in the East Division and five teams in the West Division. 

‘ BASIC RULES ‘

In contrast, Canadian football has no such rule; instead no player from the kicking team, except the kicker or any player who was behind him when he kicked the ball may approach within five yards of the ball until it has been touched by an opponent. If they do, a “no yards” penalty is called against the kicking team.

‘ TIME OUTS ‘

The CFL allows for teams to have 12 players on the field as opposed to 11 in the NFL. The CFL offers three downs per possession as opposed to the four downs allowed in the NFL. There are different rules regarding the play clock and timeouts. The CFL offers an additional method of scoring known as a single point.
