Activity is picking up as 13 teams in Canada’s only professional soccer league move closer to the start of the sixth CPSL season since the launch of 1998.
League champs Ottawa Wizards have signed another international from Malawi in Central Africa, Brampton Hitmen are busy making a movie, York Region Shooters and Vaughan Sun Devils are rationalizing their 50-plus player roster as they come down to one team in a merger, and you’ll see Hamilton Thunder much more active in a big way in their community just 30 kilometres west of Toronto.
These and other stories will unfold in the coming days as the teams go into high gear on and off the field.
Mcdonald Yobe is a standout 23 year-old midfielder who will accompany Peter Mponda when the two Malawi internationals arrive in Canada on May 1 to join the high-flying Ottawa Wizards in their bid to defend three titles—the CPSL league championship, Canada Cup and Eastern Conference titles.
We have numerous player updates and we’ll report on players who were prominent in the CPSL last year and have moved overseas or have been selected for national team honours.
