JOINT STATEMENT WITH THE CFL ON THE AIR QUALITY POLICY
Third party organization to test air quality
TORONTO (September 7, 2023) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) and the CFL Players’ Association (CFLPA) have jointly released the following statement after a meeting to discuss their Air Quality Policy.
After a productive meeting, we will maintain our existing Air Quality Policy. We have agreed to engage an independent third party organization to test air quality and provide measurements in real time.
The decision on whether to play – or to continue playing if a game is in progress – will be based solely on these air quality measurements.
Any measurement above an Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) reading of 7 will halt play.
