Leading the Way With Live Streaming

Exceeding expectations and smashing their viewership goals year over year



The Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) is the heartbeat of amateur football in Canada, boasting three powerhouse conferences: the British Columbia Football Conference, Prairie Football Conference, and Ontario Football Conference.

 Serving as the premiere developmental league in Canada for professional football, the CJFL opens doors for young men aged 17-22 to compete in highly competitive post-high school football.

 Since 2018, Vidflex, has partered with the CJFL to grow their community and stream their games to fans around the world. This collaboration has not only energized the league but also played a pivotal role in nurturing the evolution and growth of the CJFL.


Fragmented Strategies and Financial Hurdles

The CJFL grappled with several pivotal challenges that hindered the effectiveness of their live streaming efforts.

The absence of a cohesive strategy resulted in a fragmented viewing experience, as some teams employed YouTube and others opted for various third-party streaming services. This inconsistency made it difficult for fans to access games.

Additionally, the cost of video production posed a financial obstacle, necessitating a revenue-generating model to cover operational expenses and transform live streaming into a revenue source for the league.

With the help of Vidflex, the CJFL was able to realize the following key challenges:

  1. How to offer a cohesive and professional streaming experience for the league as well as the fans.
  2. How to establish production standards to maintain consistency across teams.
  3. How to recoup the costs of live streaming and turn it into a revenue generating endeavour.

"The team at Vidflex created a professional streaming platform to unify our league’s webcasting, and generate new revenue through pay-per-view and advertising. The platform makes it easy for our fans to watch games, and the revenue allows us to reinvest back into the teams and athletes."
