Edmonton Eskimos open 2016 season with Grey Cup rematch
EDMONTON – The Edmonton Eskimos 2016 season will start the same way the 2015 campaign ended: competing against the Ottawa REDBLACKS.
The Esks will host the REDBLACKS June 25 in a rematch of the Grey Cup, which Edmonton won 26-20.
The battle of Alberta will resume Sept. 5 when Edmonton visits Calgary in their annual Labour Day match up. The two teams will go head-to-head again five days later in Edmonton.
The Eskimos will be home to the Saskatchewan Roughriders July 8 and Aug. 26, then will visit Saskatchewan Sept. 18.
The 104th Grey Cup is in Toronto Sunday, Nov. 27.
