STAMPS PLAY HOST TO LIONS

Calgary Stampeders vs BC Lions
Presented by New West Trucks
McMahon Stadium
Saturday, June 29
5 p.m. kickoff
TV: TSN
Radio: 770 CHQR

Following a Week 2 bye, the Calgary Stampeders will return to action to face the BC Lions on Saturday evening with both teams looking for their first win of 2019. The game kicks off at 5 p.m. and will be broadcast on 770 CHQR radio and TSN.

Calgary (0-1) began their season with a 32-28 loss to the visiting RedBlacks. The Lions (0-2) have been dealt defeats by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Edmonton Eskimos thus far.

The Stamps and Lions met in the second week of the pre-season with BC securing a come-from-behind victory. In 2018, the Red and White went 2-1 against BC including a 1-1 mark at home.

DeVone Claybrooks will be returning to McMahon Stadium as BC’s head coach for the first time since spending a decade with the Stamps organization – three seasons as a player followed by seven seasons as an assistant coach.

A triumph for the Stampeders on Saturday would prevent their first 0-2 start at home since 2011 and their first pair of consecutive losses overall to start a season since 2009.

Week 4 will see Calgary make their initial road trip with a visit to Saskatchewan while BC will face the Argonauts.
