L1O and CPL to stage doubleheader on May 29

 

 

York United will play Cavalry before North Toronto Nitros take on Vaughan Azzurri in back-to-back games at the York Lions Stadium.

 

League1 Ontario and the Canadian Premier League have joined forces to stage an exciting doubleheader at York Lions Stadium on Sunday, May 29.

 

York United will kick off the afternoon’s action against Cavalry at 2pm ET, before North Toronto Nitros take to the field against fellow in-form side Vaughan Azzurri in the L1O Men’s Premier Division at 5pm ET.

 

The two CPL teams currently share the same record after six matches each with two wins, two ties and two losses, but a run of positive results could help either of them close the gap to early frontrunners Pacific FC.

 

Meanwhile the Nitros and the Azzurri are currently the two leading teams in the L1O men’s league; the former has a perfect record from their first five games and Vaughan are just two points behind.

 

The York Lions Stadium was opened in 2015 and is situated on the York University campus. It seats 4,000 people and is used by the university’s varsity teams as well as York United, Toronto FC II, and Major League Rugby side Toronto Arrows.

 

Tickets for the doubleheader are priced from $18 for adults and $9 for youths. Please click here to buy your tickets: https://l1o.ca/YUdh522

 

Angus McNab, CEO and General Manager of York United, said: “The opening fixtures in League1 Ontario have been full of excitement and some incredible moments, and we are delighted to host the Men's Premier Division match between Vaughan and North Toronto.

 

“I hope it's the first of many League1 games, including those in the Women's Premier Division and the reserve competitions, that we host and showcase as doubleheaders this season.”

 

Marko Milanović, North Toronto Nitros head coach, said: “We welcome the opportunity to play at such a great venue and to be a part of this special event.  

 

“Being one of the youngest teams in the league, many of our players are aspiring to play in the CPL one day. The team enjoyed playing at Tim Hortons Field last weekend, and we're hoping for a similar experience at the York Lions Stadium.”

 

Patrice Gheisar, Vaughan Azzurri head coach, said: "Our players, staff and club are so excited about this upcoming doubleheader. We are certainly hoping this is the first of many more as our athletes get the opportunity to play at an elite CPL facility.

 

“We also hope these events will bring more eyes to these games from CPL coaches as most of our players seek to find a home in that wonderful league. It also shows them there is a real pathway between CPL and L1O and that our league wants to promote its players.

NATIONAL YOUTH CLUB LICENSE

"Canada Soccer is pleased to announce that 39 clubs in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario have been provisionally granted the Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licence. 

As the highest amateur youth club designation in the Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program, the National Youth Club Licence recognizes the highest achieving organizations from across Canada. The Program is a key component to Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster that was announced with unanimous support by its membership in May 2019. 

“We are pleased to announce the exemplary 39 National Youth Club Licence holders that have worked diligently over the past 12 months to demonstrate a willingness to improve, to collaborate, and most importantly to raise the level of youth football in our country,” said Jason deVos, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development. “Each club worked with Canada Soccer and their respective Provincial and Territorial Member Association to define a roadmap of standards designed to improve the experience for all who participate in the game.”  

The organizations have been granted the National Youth Club Licence for a period of two years and have created a collaborative work plan to ensure that they continue to meet the requirements and progress to further achieve the standards set by Canada Soccer. National Youth Club Licence holders display characteristics and demonstrate behaviours aligned with the highest expectations of governance, administration, infrastructure, and technical; support their Provincial and Territorial Member Association and Canada Soccer Pathways; and must participate in standards-based leagues in their Province or Territory by 2020."   August 1, 2019 canadasoccer
