The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Saskatchewan Roughriders preseason game on Monday has been postponed, the CFL announced early Thursday.

The game was to be played at Mosaic Stadium in Regina on the Monday of this upcoming May long weekend, with kickoff at 4 p.m. CT. But owing to the recent player strike and loss of training camp days, the CFL had decided to reschedule.

No other preseason games have been affected.

 

The CFL and CFLPA agreed on a new seven-year collective bargaining agreement late Wednesday. Seven of the nine teams will return to practice today for Day 1 of training camp. The Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Elks have been practising since Sunday, as they weren't allowed to legally join the strike until Thursday afternoon, owing to Alberta labour laws.
