The 1990 Canadian Football League season is considered to be the 37th season in modern-day Canadian football, although it is officially the 33rd Canadian Football League season.

CFL News in 1990[edit]

J. Donald Crump was appointed as the eighth CFL Commissioner on Friday, January 5.

The CFL Annual Meetings-Canadian College Draft was held in Hamilton for the third straight year.

The CFL increased roster limit to 37 players to include 20-Non Imports, 14-Imports and 3-Quarterbacks with the reserve list remaining at two players.

The Toronto Argonauts and the BC Lions set a record for most points in a game when they scored 111 points on Saturday, September 1 at the SkyDome. The Argonauts won the game 68–43.

The BC Lions added silver to its team colour scheme. In addition, Vancouver played host to the Grey Cup game for the 11th time, and for the fourth time at BC Place.

Citing multi-million dollar losses, the league-run Canadian Football Network syndication service ceased operations after this season; it had replaced CTV's CFL coverage in 1987.
