                        ABOUT THE 2019 CFL COMBINES
Canadian Football League (CFL) prospects will vie for an invitation to the CFL Combine presented by New Era

For the seventh consecutive year, the CFL will host a trio of regional combines ahead of the CFL Combine.
Following the Western Regional Combine in Edmonton, Montréal will host the Eastern Regional Combine on
March 13 at the Scitec Sports Dome in Baie-D’Urfé, and Toronto will host the Ontario Regional Combine on
March 21 at the Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport and Varsity Stadium.

The CFL, with input from all teams, will then invite additional players from the regional combines to the national
