Alumni launch petition regarding cancellation of SFU football program


Simon Fraser University alumni, athletes, and stakeholders have expressed shock and disappointment over the recent termination of the school’s varsity football program. SFU President Joy Johnson recently stated that the program was cancelled after the Lone Star Conference decided not to renew its affiliate agreement with the university. In response, the SFU Football Alumni Society has taken steps to reverse the cancellation, including launching an online petition and taking legal action to halt these proceedings. Members of the Canadian football community, including the commissioner of the Canadian Football League, have expressed their support for this petition and are calling on the leadership of U Sports and the Canada West Conference to “find a new home for the team.”
