The CFL’s 2020 edition of Touchdown Atlantic is a sellout, with all 10,000 tickets currently available purchased.

The CFL made the announcement Wednesday, one day after tickets to the July 25 game in Halifax between the Toronto Argonauts and Saskatchewan Roughriders were made available to the public.

Now, the CFL is looking at ways to possibly boost capacity for the contest at Huskies Stadium.

When the CFL unveiled the game in January, it announced the capacity at Huskies Stadium would increase from 4,000 to 10,000.

This will be the first regular-season game played at Saint Mary’s. The CFL held an exhibition contest there in 2005.

The previous four Touchdown Atlantic games were held in Moncton.

Last year, the Montreal Alouettes defeated Toronto 28-22 before 10,126 spectators at Croix-Bleue Medavie Stadium.
