Atlantic Schooners could begin their CFL tenure playing in Moncton

If all goes to plan, the CFL's Atlantic Schooners would be playing its early games in Moncton, New Brunswick.

This is the plan for the proposed franchise, if it started playing in 2020 and a new stadium were being constructed in Halifax.

Schooners Sports and Entertainment is the group looking to secure a CFL franchise for Halifax, but there's an issue over the costs of the stadium to the public purse.

The proponents say their group has established a self-imposed deadline of the end of June to determine either to go ahead with the project or move on.
