First, a little primer on the Canadian Championship… In its simplest form: all the professional soccer teams in this great country of ours have a tourney and the winner is declared the Canadian Champion … AND gets awarded the Voyageurs Cup AND a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League.
So, in a nutshell, all the Canadian Premier League teams, plus the three Canadian MLS teams, (Toronto FC, CF Montreal, and Vancouver Whitecaps) plus a few other clubs will battle it out to crown a champion.
Our first action is Saturday, August 21 at 7pm vs Valour FC. and you should be here at TD Place. The Canadian Championship matters. A Saturday night game under the lights will be the setting for us to take a step forward in this important competition.
Valour FC is a familiar foe, since we’ve played them twice in league play so far this year. If we win this match we move on to face Forge FC, a CPL club from Hamilton in the next round in September, and who knows after that.
Get tickets HERE and we’ll see you on August 21. Come say Vamos Atlético!
