La Canadian Football League (CFL), también conocida por su nombre en francés Ligue canadienne de football (LCF), (Liga Canadiense de Fútbol) es una liga de fútbol canadiense profesional de Canadá. Este deporte, similar al fútbol americano, es el segundo en popularidad de ese país.[1]

Está compuesta de ocho equipos localizados en diferentes ciudades, dividios en las divisiones del (Este y Oeste), que tienen cuatro equipos cada una. La temporada dura 20 semanas entre junio y octubre; cada equipo juega 18 partidos y tiene dos semanas de descanso. Después de la temporada regular seis de los ocho equipos juegan durante tres semanas los playoffs, que finalizan con el título de la Grey Cup.

A pesar que la liga se juega en Canadá la mitad de los jugadores son canadienses y estadounidenses, tanto que entre 1993 y 1995 la CFL creó la CFL USA, que fue la expansión de la liga a EE.UU. El unico equipo de ese país que ganó la Grey Cup fueron los Baltimore Stallions.
