Regular season game at Olympic Stadium

Once again this year, fans will be happy to learn that the Alouettes
will be returning to Olympic Stadium for the last regular season game,
on Saturday, October 22 at 3 p.m., as the defending Grey Cup Champion
Toronto Argonauts will be in town.

All games on television

Also, like in the last few years, all regular season games will be
broadcast on RDS and on either CBC or TSN, with the exception of only
the Sept. 25 game against Winnipeg which will only be broadcast on RDS.

Every Alouettes game will be broadcast on radio in French and in English
with the organization's partners CKAC and CJAD, respectively, and will
be available throughout Quebec.

"Our schedule allows us to reach our fans throughout the province, "
said President and Chief Executive Officer Larry Smith. " Not only will
Quebec fans be able to follow our games on television and radio, but
fans from all over will have access to a larger amount of tickets as we
host our final regular season home game at Olympic Stadium."
