The Canadian Football League and Maritime Football Limited Partnership hoping to bring a franchise to Atlantic Canada have launched a season ticket drive and name-the-team contest.
This comes despite uncertainty of where the team will play.
The CFL commissioner and the MFLP made the announcement in Halifax yesterday afternoon.
Plans are still in the works to secure a conditional expansion franchise to begin play in Halifax in 2021.
Right now, season ticket deposits are $50 per package which will place fans on a priority list for season ticket membership and seat selection on a first come, first served basis.
Those who make a deposit can then participate in a name-the-team contest and vote on name options as well as submit name choices.
The team name will be announced during Grey Cup weekend later this month.
The four shortlisted names are Atlantic Convoy, Atlantic Admirals, Atlantic Storm and Atlantic Schooners.
