The CFL announced Tuesday it has reached a partnership with the Confederacao Brasileira de Futebol Americano.

The league announced Tuesday it has reached a partnership with the Confederacao Brasileira de Futebol Americano (CBFA). Brazil becomes the 13th country to sign a co-operative agreement with the CFL since November 2018.

“It is an honour to be part of this exciting partnership,” CBFA president Italo Mingoni said in a statement. “Our work together will showcase the talent and skill of Brazilian players on the world stage and further develop the foundations of the game in our country.” The Brazilian federation joins the International Alliance of Gridiron Football, a multilateral organization dedicated to expanding tackle football’s global footprint. Other members include federations and/or elite leagues from Austria, Canada, Great Britain, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway and Sweden. “Our international partnerships now include the leading football federations and leagues in South America, Europe and Asia, as well as, Mexico,” said CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie. “Together, we are building new pathways for players from around the world to seek opportunities in the CFL, for Canadians to play in other countries, and for the league to share its experiences and expertise on coaching, officiating and player development.” There are more than 18,000 football players registered in regional leagues in Brazil, with the first and second divisions organized by the CBFA having 30 teams each. The CBFA boasts over 400 men’s and women’s squads competing in tackle, flag and beach football. It also manages the men’s and women’s national teams. Last year, the CFL’s nine member clubs featured specially designated “global” players on their rosters for the first time. The league will expand the initiative to include up to 45 global players in 2020. The CFL is also holding scouting combines this winter in Europe, Japan and Mexico before staging a global draft in April. More from Sportsnet Read more: Sportsnet

3 trade deadline moves the Maple Leafs should explore - Sportsnet.caThe MapleLeafs' recent rash of injuries and instability in net beyond Frederik Andersen, have made their trade-deadline needs crystal clear: defensive depth and a backup goalie. lukefoxjukebox looks at three targets who could shore up those issues ⤵️ MapleLeafs lukefoxjukebox Georgiev would be a great signing for the MapleLeafs MapleLeafs lukefoxjukebox Price will be too high for Dubas and his salary cap hell. I like thia, Centre of the Universe fails again. MapleLeafs lukefoxjukebox IMO the problems go deeper than that. From puck drop it against Chi. It seemed to me the leafs were not in the right mindset. I think they were preoccupied with visions of the 8 day break. Inconsistency has been a problem all season

Blue Jays no longer stuck in neutral with pursuit of transformative talent - Sportsnet.caIn the very least, the words and actions of Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio suggest internal expectations exceed external expectations, and who knows? As Alex Anthopoulos showed, when front-office contracts start to run down, the equation changes. BlueJays SNJeffBlair I will believe that when I see it. Rogers cares only about profit. They had two runs that COULD have been WS titles, but they cheaped out when it came to acquiring AVAILABLE dominant left handed pitching. I hate Rogers. Wish they'd sell. BlueJays SNJeffBlair Please send this memo to management. BlueJays SNJeffBlair The question is do they have the balls to use the financial security that they have or are they going to continue to play cheap
