CFL News in 1970[edit]

3M Tartan Turf was installed at Empire Stadium. The first sod was preserved and sent to Hamilton to be used as part of the future Canadian Football Hall of Fame building. The first CFL All-Star Game was held since 1958. The Montreal Alouettes are sold to former Ottawa Rough Rider owner Sam Berger, who changes their colours to green, white and red, and it's the beginning of a great dynasty in Montreal.
