The CFL’s blackout restrictions are directly linked to ticket sales. This practice is in place in order to try to drive ticket sales in order to help support local teams and their Stadiums. Blackout decisions revert to the league if 90% of tickets are sold 48 hours prior to the game start.
This has been the blackout policy for the CFL for the 2008-2013 broadcaster rights agreement, and this policy has been confirmed as continuing through to the new five year service agreement beginning in 2014.
