TORONTO – The 2022 Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts announced today the team’s schedule for the 2023 Canadian Football League season.

The Argos have a lot to celebrate in 2023 as the reigning champions look to defend their Grey Cup title in the team’s 150th year. The Argonauts date all the way back to 1873 and will celebrate the team’s great history in 2023 all season long. Last season saw the Argos win the East Division for the second year in a row, with an 11-7 record and rode that momentum to a thrilling last minute victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the 109th Grey Cup. The full 2023 Argos schedule can be seen below.

Highlights from the 2023 home schedule:

  • The Argos open up at home following a Week 1 bye for the second year in a row and will host their long-time rival the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on June 18th. This will be the fifth time in the last 10 seasons Toronto has opened up their season against the Ticats. The 2022 Grey Cup champion Boatmen will be honoured prior to the game.
  • Toronto’s Week 8 game vs. Saskatchewan on July 29th will be a neutral site game but will officially be an Argos home game. Toronto is no stranger to playing neutral site games recently having played in Wolfville, NS last season as part of the Touchdown Atlantic Series, Moncton, NB (2019, 2010), a preseason game in Guelph, ON (2018, 2022), Fort McMurray, AB (2015), a preseason game in Halifax, NS (2005) and a preseason game in London, ON (2012). More details to come in the new year.
  • Toronto’s annual CNE game will take place on August 25th when the Argos take on Calgary at 7:30 p.m. A ticket to the game will get fans free admission into the CNE.
  • October 6th vs. Edmonton will be a 150th Anniversary celebration game as the team marks its milestone birthday.
  • Seven of the Argos eight home games at BMO Field will be night games (7/7:30 p.m.) this season; Three on Sunday nights, two on Friday and Saturday nights, and one Monday kickoff. The remaining BMO home date is slated for a 1:00 p.m. start.
  • Toronto went 4-2 at BMO Field last season against East Division rivals including playoffs and will welcome Ottawa, Montreal and Hamilton to town five times in 2023.
  • Bye Weeks in Week 1, 5 and 11.

Additional notes from the full schedule:

  • The Boatmen’s preseason game on June 1st will be played at The University of Guelph, for the second season in a row, where the team will hold their 2023 training camp.
  • Toronto will play Hamilton four times in a season for the third straight season. Prior to the two teams playing four times in 2021, this many games between the two rivals hadn’t happened since 2012. Toronto is 6-2 in those games over the past two seasons.
  • The Labour Day Classic in Hamilton continues September 4th in the 52st chapter of the traditional clash. The Argos won their first LDC since 2012 last season with a decisive 28-8 victory.
  • Toronto will play seven games on a Friday, six on Saturday’s, three on Sunday’s and two Monday matchups in 2023.
  • The Double Blue’s nine games on eight or more days of rest is the most in the CFL and their five games with seven or more days of rest is second most in the league.
  • Semi-final playoff games will be played November 4th, followed by Division Finals on November 11thand the 110th Grey Cup will take place on November 19th in Hamilton, ON, the earliest the championship game has been played since 2006.
