BC Lions Schedule
The BC Lions are ready to take to the field this season to play against some of the best teams
in the Canadian Football League. The Lions have a nice collection of players that are looking to make their mark on the rest
of the CFL. The Lions play in the West Division and are coming off a 2013 season in which the team was able to make the playoffs.
The Lions barely lost out to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the postseason, and the Roughriders were able to make a run all
the way through the postseason to a Grey Cup victory. The Lions will be faced with a bevy of tough matchups this season, and
they'll need their most loyal fans on hand to cheer them on to victory. The action will be thrilling at BC Place Stadium yet
again this season, and you can be there in person to witness it live and in person.
The BC Lions always give it their
all when they hit the field, and their effort over the years has earned them a loyal group of fans that always show up in
big numbers for home games. Each season the Lions are faced with some tough matchups at BC Place Stadium, and some of the
top teams in the CFL are ready to visit this year. The Lions will have to play their best when the Calgary Stampeders come
to town this season. Calgary looks to have one of the best teams in the league, and they're looking to finish at the top of
the West standings. The Lions are going to have to play good pass defense in this one, because if they don't the Stampede
offense may just run all over them.
Another tough team that will visit this season is the Edmonton Eskimos. The Eskimos
have some serious talent on the roster, and that should make them tough to take down, even when they come to BC Place Stadium.
The Eskimos are sure to give it their best on the field in this matchup, so it will be up to the Lions to send them home with
a loss. If you've never seen a huge West matchups like this one, then it's time to change that. Get out to this contest or
one of the many other great games facing the Lions away from home this season. It should be another great year of Lions football,
and you can be a part of it.
BC Lions History
The BC Lions are the oldest professional sports team in
Vancouver, having played every year since 1954, but are the youngest in the CFL. Also known as the Leos, the Lions quickly
established themselves as one of the top teams in the league, and won their first Grey Cup in 1964. All together the Lions
have won six Grey Cup Championships, the most recent in 2011, and have appeared in the game nine times. In 1994 the team became
the first Western Conference team to win the Grey Cup at home, a feat which they also accomplished in 2011, and which has
only been duplicated by Saskatchewan, who did it in the 2013 season. The Lions have retired eight numbers, those of Lui Passaglia,
Willie Fleming, Joe Kapp, Jim Young, Byron Bailey, Al Wilson, Jamie Taras and Norm Fieldgate. Another notable former BC Lion
is former quarterback Doug Flutie, who went on not only to be named to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and the 50th Anniversary
Dream Team, but also to considerable success in the NFL.
If you've never see a Canadian
Football League game in person, then you have been missing out in a major way. The CFL is filled with great athletes that
