CFL Playoff Bracket — A CFLdb Razzle Document

(Click image to enlarge)

Update v2.0 Nov. 6, 2012: Redesigned by our new graphic artist volunteer. I couldn’t be more pleased with the job he did. More to come from him.

Update v2.2 Nov. 10, 2012: Updated explanation text on each page to reflect the format of that page.

Update v2.3 July 2016: Updated with latest CFL and CFLdb logos.

This document explains visually the CFL playoff format, and the variations if a crossover team is in effect. The first page is the normal CFL playoffs with 3 teams from each division. The next two pages show the differences in the case of an Eastern Division crossover or a Western Division crossover.

For more information on the workings of the CFL playoffs, see the FAQ question on that matter. If you have any suggestions or feedback on this Razzle, let me know.
