SFU Special Adviser determines football exhibition plan not possible


Simon Fraser University has announced that its football team will not play competitive exhibition games this fall. This announcement follows the release of an interim report from independent special advisor Bob Copeland, who was recently appointed to evaluate all possible future scenarios for SFU’s cancelled football team. After speaking with more than 275 people, Copeland determined that playing exhibition games in 2023 “is not a feasible option due to safety and logistical concerns.” Copeland’s final report on the future of SFU football is expected to be released this September.
