Broncos Statement

The Kamloops Broncos would like to inform all players, fans and the public that the CJFL in coordination with all member leagues has decided to cancel the 2020 season.

“Today’s announcement was not an easy one to make but our number one priority is the health and safety of our players. We have come a long way since last season and were the only Canadian Junior Football Team that had ‘return to play’ approval”, stated Jan Antons (General Manager Kamloops Broncos).

The Kamloops Broncos will continue to plan for this season and potentially run camps, practices and other team activities.

“We will continue to stay engaged with our players and our local community and keep planning for next season. ” continued Antons

CJFL Statement

The 2020 CJFL season has been cancelled

The Canadian Junior Football League has determined that it is not feasible to operate a regular season or playoffs for the 2020 season. Our focus and attention will now be on our return to play plan for the 2021 season.

“It is very disappointing to make this announcement today, but our priority is the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff, and team administrators”, stated CJFL Commissioner Jim Pankovich.

Since the beginning of this pandemic, the CJFL has followed all public health guidelines and will continue to support them in the future. Unfortunately, at this stage, return to play guidelines do not allow for large enough gatherings to make training and competition safe for our athletes.  Despite our hope that the situation in Canada would improve and allow for the CJFL to proceed with the 2020 season, the health and safety challenges stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing risk to our players, coaches and staffs make it unfeasible for the CJFL teams to compete in 2020.

“Our teams play an important role in their communities. All CJFL teams will continue to engage with their players and communities as regional public health regulations allow.”  continued Pankovich.

We look forward to returning to competition in 2021.
