SFU ends varsity football program


Simon Fraser University has announced the end of its varsity football program. SFU President Joy Johnson said that the decision was made after the Lone Star Conference decided not to renew its affiliate membership agreement with SFU for football earlier this year. “We made this decision now to give students time to make other plans for their athletic careers if they so choose,” said Johnson. “We will support football athletes who want to explore options outside of SFU, and will honour athletic scholarship commitments for those who choose to remain at SFU and meet eligibility requirements for the 2023-24 school year.”
