NEW NAME, NEW TEAMS FOR A NEW-LOOK CSL – Schedule Released
The Canadian Soccer League will kickoff the upcoming season with a new-look name change for one of its most successful teams and included in the 2022 schedule are two new clubs with an attachment from the past.
FC Vorkuta has announced that effective immediately the club will be known as Continentals FC with a new logo and a website http://continentalsfc.com.
“But our winning attitude is still the same as we kickoff soon with a desire and focus to regain the CSL Championship,” said owner Igor Demitchev in making the announcement. Vorkuta was the reigning CSL champion going into 2021, but were defeated by Scarborough – the current CSL champion – in last season’s final.
FC Vorkuta entered the CSL in 2017 and were CSL champions in 2018 and 2020 and took the league title in 2017, 2019 and 2021. The club took the CSL Second Division title in 2018 and 2019 and the ProSound Cup in 2021.
As announced earlier, new teams York Region Shooters and Toronto Falcons will kickoff with the Shooters returning following a hiatus which followed the 2017 season, while the Falcons enter the CSL for the first time with GM Samad Kadirov who held a similar position with FC Vorkuta. Scarborough, Serbian White Eagles, and BGHC 1 makeup the six-team league.
The following schedule will lead to the CSL Championship playoffs starting with the quarter finals on Saturday, August 13 (2 pm and 4 pm), the semifinals on Saturday, August 20 (5 pm and 7 pm) and the CSL Champioship Final on Saturday, August 27 at 8 pm.
The two top teams at the end of the regular season will gain a bye to the semi-finals. Team third in the standings will play the team ending sixth and the team fourth will play the team ending fifth.
The CSL Championship Final on August 27 will be followed by the Enio Perruzza Memorial Trophy competition.
