The Canadian Football League (CFL) has played numerous neutral site games in its history – i.e. games outside of both teams' home cities.

Several CFL games have been staged in the United States – the earliest was in 1909, and the most recent was in 1995 during the league's short-lived US expansion.

In the 2005 preseason, and regular seasons of 2010, 2011 and 2013, games in Atlantic Canada were billed as Touchdown Atlantic. This is currently on hiatus.[1]

In 2013, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats played most of their season in Guelph, Ontario, due to the reconstruction of Tim Hortons Field at the former Ivor Wynne Stadium. In 2015, games were moved to locations including Fort McMurray, Alberta, as some CFL stadiums were used for the Women's World Cup, Pan-American Games and baseball playoffs.[2][3]

List of games

Below is a list of games played by teams from the CFL, and its predecessors the Interprovincial Rugby Football Union and Western Interprovincial Football Union, outside the home city of both teams.

Note: Not included are Grey Cup games, which are played annually at a neutral site. Also not included are interleague games – for example, games between American football and CFL teams, or games where CFL teams played against Ontario Rugby Football Union, Quebec Rugby Football Union or Canadian Intercollegiate Rugby Football Union. These Unions competed for the Grey Cup, or its predecessor the Canadian Dominion Football Championship, in the early years.
