Genius Sports and the Canadian Football League (CFL) have launched a new free-to-play weekly predictor game called CFL Blitz Picks presented by BetRegal.
CFL Blitz Picks is part of Genius Sports’ partnership with the CFL and it will join CFL Pick ‘Em, CFL Fantasy, and CFL Preseason Futures on the CFL GameZone, the league’s centralized hub of exclusive offerings, products, and contests.
“We couldn’t be more excited to deliver this new gaming experience for our fans,” commented Tyler Mazereeuw, Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer at the CFL.
“Made possible through our partnership with Genius Sports, CFL Blitz Picks represents another fun and exciting avenue to bridge the gap between the league and our incredible fans.”
From Week 12 through to the Grey Cup on November 20, fans will be able to predict various outcomes on CFL Blitz Picks surrounding players, teams, league-wide statistics, and more, for weekly entries to try and win the grand prize of four 2023 season tickets and four jerseys from their favorite CFL team.
Weekly, monthly and season-long leaderboards will be featured on the platform, as well as fan customizable mini-leagues.
Mazereeuw added: “Whether you’re a seasoned CFL diehard or you’re new to Canadian football, CFL Blitz Picks allows you to show off your knowledge and learn about the league. But outside of the competition, it’s also a doorway into a passionate fanbase and a like-minded community.
“Genius Sports and the league are opening the door with CFL GameZone, and we’d love for all of our fans to walk through and connect – not only with each other but also the league.”
Josh Linforth, Managing Director of Media & Engagement at Genius Sports, stated: “When we set out to create our partnership with the CFL, we saw an incredible fanbase – one yearning to be closer and more connected to the game it loved.
“We have the infrastructure in place, and we are taking steps alongside the CFL to realize our vision for creating that bond. CFL Blitz Picks and CFL GameZone are the tip of the iceberg as we continue to deliver fan experiences that are richer, more interactive, and more engaging.”
