CFL news in 1993Edit

On February 23, the Sacramento Gold Miners were announced as the CFL's ninth franchise, during the league's annual meetings in Hamilton. The team began play in 1993 at Hornet Stadium in Sacramento, California they joined the West Division. Sacramento became the first U.S.-based team to play in the CFL, and it was the first expansion team to be admitted in to the league since 1954, when the B.C. Lions became a franchise. A potential expansion team to San Antonio was put on hold for the 1993 season.

On March 6, The Canadian College Draft was held in Calgary at the Jubilee Auditorium, becoming the first Western Canadian city to host the event, since Winnipeg in 1971. Calgary also played host to the Grey Cup game for only the second time in history on Sunday, November 28. In that game, the Edmonton Eskimos defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, 33–23 before a crowd of 50,035.

Records: Dave Ridgway set the CFL record for consecutive field goals made with 28.[1]
