    EDMONTON – Another season of Canada West football is around the corner, and fans will once again get to see the action on television, as Canada West and SaskTel released the 2019 broadcast schedule on Thursday.

    A total of 15 games will be televised on the Canada West Football Showcase, which is entering its third season.

    The Alberta Golden Bears will have three games televised this season: September 6 @ Regina, October 19th vs Regina, and October 26th at Saskatchewan. 

    Showcase games will be available across Western Canada, with games in Saskatchewan available on SaskTel maxTV, on TELUS Optik TV in B.C and Alberta, and on Bell MTS Fibe TV in Manitoba.

    "For the past two seasons, SaskTel has shown their commitment to Canada West and our student-athletes through exceptional weekly coverage," said CW Vice President of Marketing and Communications Adrienne Healey."We couldn't be happier with the partnership and are looking forward to another great year of university football."

    2019 coverage kicks off opening night, as the defending Hardy Cup champion Saskatchewan Huskies take on the Manitoba Bisons at IG Field in Winnipeg on Friday, August 30. The biggest game of the season – the 83rd Hardy Cup – caps things off on Saturday, November 9.
