The attraction of customers to the sports betting environment takes many routes that do a great job of getting the newly interested player involved. The Sports Network is a Canadian English language sports specialty service. TSN is the largest specialty channel in Canada regarding gross revenue, with a total of $400.4 million in revenue in 2013. The media company (TSN) has launched a new fantasy sports service in partnership with the American football competition and the Canadian Football League.

Beginning on June 22, 2017 the free-to-play offering will run throughout the upcoming football season. Those who play will be able to choose six active offensive players and a defence player from one of the  nine teams on the CFL roster while they adhere to a salary cap. Fantasy managers are eligible to win weekly  prizes and at the end the big winner will get a  all expenses paid trip for two to the championship 105th Grey Cup game.

CFL senior vice-president of marketing and content, Christina Litz, commented on the offering, “We’re absolutely thrilled to offer sports fans, whether they have always loved the CFL, are new to the CFL, or just love to play fantasy sports, a product that is challenging and exciting while easy and fun to use,”
