CPSL SOCCER IS ATTRACTIVE AND NECESSARY

Did you know that the CPSL is Canada’s only professional soccer league?

It’s not the only pro soccer in Canada—the four Canadian teams attached to the U.S.-based A-League are also significant members of the Canadian professional game.

But the Canadian Professional Soccer League is the only complete pro league in the country and it’s expanding—and strengthening, and according to responses we receive from the CPSL Weekly Soccer Show and others who see CPSL games on a regular basis, it’s becoming more attractive to watch.

When Sepp Blatter, president of FIFA, soccer’s world governing body, visited Canada 18 months ago, he spoke of the importance of pro soccer in any country, but especially a soccer-developing country, like Canada.

Holger Osieck, coach of Canada’s national men’s team and the CSA’s technical director, has said often and spoke recently of the importance of professional soccer to the national teams and to the country.

“Almost all countries have a national league and Canada is one of a very few without such a league,” said Osieck. “A Canadian national league is imperative in order to develop our talent.”

So while the CPSL is presently talking to the 10 or so communities and groups interested in joining the league in Ontario and Quebec, expansion across Canada on a region by region basis is also still very much in the works. But it will take time.

In the meantime, take in some CPSL soccer—you won’t be disappointed.
