UFRC now associate members of Football Reporters of Canada

CALGARY – At the annual Football Reporters of Canada congress at the 97th Grey Cup in Calgary, the UFRC were formally accepted as associate members of the FRC.

The UFRC will now be known as the FRC-U.

This will not change the way the FRC-U operates, other than an amalgamation of the FRC’s and FRC-U’s website, and title of FRC-U’s programs.

The UFRC-CIS Top 10 will now be known as the FRC-CIS Top 10. The UFRC-CIS Players of the week will now be known as the FRC-CIS Players of the week.

FRC members will continue to work on CFL related issues and votes, while the University division will continue their focus on CIS related issues.

The associate member status will also resolve confusion in the football community regarding branding of the journalists associations. During our discussions with the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, the UFRC was frequently referred to as the FRC, who currently has an operating status in the hall.

In our ongoing discussion with the CFHOF, the effort will continue to be independently managed by the FRC’s University Chapter, or FRC-U.

UFRC decision on SFU

The UFRC will remove the Top 10 record of the SFU Clan from all results, due to their inelligible player issue which resulted in the CWUAA stripping the team of their first two wins.

Adjustments will be posted in by next Wednesday.
