The CFL will have more of its games broadcast in the U.S. this season.

The league announced Friday that NBC Sports will carry 14 regular-season games, the conference finals and Grey Cup. Last year, NBC broadcast nine regular-season contests, the playoffs and 100th Grey Cup.

“We’re very pleased to partner again this year with NBC Sports Network to deliver our high-scoring and exciting brand of football to our fans south of the border,” CFL president Michael Copeland said in a statement. “It’s important for our league and has a significant impact on player recruitment, and gives fans an opportunity to follow some of their former favourite collegiate players.”
