2016 PFC Schedule

The Prairie Football Conference (PFC) has released its schedule for the 2016 Junior Football season!

This year there are two notable changes to the formatting of the schedule. The British Columbia Football Conference (BCFC) and PFC teams will meet in the regular season. This season the Saskatoon Hilltops will face off with the Okanagan Sun and the Winnipeg Rifles will challenge the Valley Huskers. “Getting the opportunity to start integrating regular season games with the BCFC is great for our league. In addition to giving all the PFC teams an opportunity to play against the BC teams, it also enforces that we are a national league.” says Wildcat President John Wojcicki.

To accommodate the extra game with the BC teams, an additional week has been added to the season, making it a nine game season instead of an eight game one. For the Wildcats, that extra game will be played against cross-town rivals the Edmonton Huskies. “We’re excited to get an additional game against the Huskies… There’s a long history of rivalry between the two teams which always makes for a passionate game. Having the third game gives us the ability to declare a true regular season series winner, which will only add to the rivalry.” says Head Coach Darcy Park.

The Wildcats start off the season at home against the Calgary Colts and then head out to Winnipeg the following weekend. We come back home for the next two weeks, first playing the Huskies and then the Hilltops. Week 5 is a bye week, followed by the showcase against the Huskies. Week 7 is in Calgary, then back to Edmonton for an away game against the Huskies. Week 9 will be in Saskatoon against the Hilltops, and the regular season will end in Edmonton for the only regular season game against the Thunder. PFC Semi Finals are October 23, the Finals on October 30, with the Canadian Bowl scheduled for November 12 at the home of the BCFC Champion.
