In trouble, the Alouettes under tutelage
The Canadian Football League (CFL) has taken possession of the Montreal Alouettes temporarily in order to proceed with an accelerated and formal sale process. This therefore ends the association between the CFL and the estate of former Alouettes owner Sid Spiegel, who passed away in 2021.
Mario Cecchini has been named interim president of the team and will assume managing the day-to-day operations of the affairs of the organization under the direction and supervision of the CFL office. General Manager Danny Maciocia retains his position and will continue to focus on building the team for the 2023 season.
The CFL notes that several groups have already expressed an interest in buying the Alouettes, including groups whose members live or work in Montreal or the province of Quebec.
