The winner of the CPL advances to the CONCACAF League, where they will compete against clubs from Central America and the Caribbean. All CPL teams compete in the Canadian Championship, which pits them against other Canadian clubs from other leagues. CPL teams may qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League via either the Canadian Championship or the CONCACAF League. The CPL will have two direct places into the CONCACAF Champions League starting in 2024.

The Canadian Soccer Association formally sanctioned the league on May 6, 2017, with an initial soft launch date of 2018, which was then pushed out to 2019. The league’s main goal is to enhance national soccer talent and the sport in Canada, and it has a number of laws in place to do so. These include a Canadian player quota on team rosters and starting lineups, domestic under-21 player requirements, and a Canadian university draft.

Seven clubs competed in the CPL’s first season, with an eighth, Atlético Ottawa, joining for the second season in 2020. In 2023, a new expansion club headquartered in Langley, British Columbia, will make its debut. The CPL is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

 

History

Since the closure of the original Canadian Soccer League in 1992, there was no fully professional first division domestic league of Canadian soccer.[4] The only national Canadian competition was the Canadian Championship, a domestic cup which has been played since 2008. Canadian teams played in American leagues, such as Major League Soccer, NASL and the USL Championship, while the L1O and PLSQ were created as provincial-level leagues.

 

A new version of the Canadian Soccer League was briefly sanctioned as a third-division semi-pro league by the CSA from 2010 to 2013, losing the sanction after the CSA board of directors adopted a new soccer structure in Canada.Prior to being de-sanctioned, the Canadian Soccer League had been involved in a match-fixing scandal and a majority of the teams reportedly did not meet CSA requirements in the 2012 season.

A new fully professional Canadian soccer league was first publicly reported in June 2013.The reports suggested that Hamilton Tiger-Cats owner Bob Young was part of a core group of investors working with the Canadian Soccer Association and its president Victor Montagliani to create a new set of fully professional teams or a league in Canada. The Tiger-Cats ownership group was granted exclusive rights by the Canadian Soccer Association until 2017 to establish a team that would play in the under-construction Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton.
