Football fans may have to do without a tailgate party at the Stade TELUS in May 2021.

Félix Auger-Aliassime of L’Ancienne-Lorette reached the final of the Bett1 Hulks Cologne Indoors tennis tournament in Cologne, Germany on Oct. 18, but came out (almost) empty-handed.

Seeded third, Auger-Aliassime lost 6-3, 6-3 to top seed Alexander Zverev of Germany. Auger-Aliassime is still looking for his first career title. The Cologne tournament was his sixth career final.
