The Innisfail Eagles and the Stony Plain Eagles were the only two senior men's triple teams in Alberta last season. They played without a league and staged a series of exhibition games during the year. Innisfail then built up a three games to none lead in the best of seven provincial final before the remainder of the season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
