The Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) announced via social media on Saturday that they will be releasing the full schedule for all three conferences on Thursday. The Hamilton Hurricanes are in the Ontario Football Conference, which will rejoin the junior national football league for the 2017 season.
After the 2014 season the OFC raised their age limit to allow players aged 23 and 24 to be added to their roster and given full playing status. The age increase eliminated OFC teams to compete at the national level of the CJFL who gives eligibility to players aged 18-22.
Along with the reinstatement of the OFC and the release of the 2017 fall schedule, the CJFL also teased at a historical announcement as well. That announcement is due to be unveiled by the league on Wednesday.
Back-to-back days for junior football announcements.
The Hamilton Hurricanes won the Ontario Football Conference championship in 2016 with a 52-21 victory over the Windsor AKO Fratmen.
