    The Canadian clubs in the "Championship" play in MLS or the NASL against mostly American clubs. Canada has a league with worse clubs that have no way of qualifying for the CCL.

    Under the radar of Montréals CCL antics, the Canadian Championship preliminary round was played over the last week:

    22-Apr: Ottawa 1-3 Edmonton
    29-Apr: Edmonton 3-1 Ottawa
    Edmonton win 6-2 on aggregate

    Semi Finals start next Wednesday (no rest for Montréal!):

    06-May: Edmonton v Vancouver
    06-May: Montréal v Toronto

    Return legs scheduled for 13-May.

    Too bad Saputo has the league in his pocket. Montreal has yet ANOTHER bye week in the league so that they can rest for the beginning (end) of their Champions League run on Wednesday.

    Montreal's first five MLS games are in 64 days. Later they have five MLS games in 15 days.

    Canadian soccer, but they have matches in MLS. I see they are only team with fewest matches in MLS .... I think they prepared too much for CCL final :D

    The Montreal Impact lost 3-2 tonight in Toronto, tying 3-3 on aggregate and advancing to the Final on away goals (how else?). Besides the CCL implications, a successful title defense would leave Montreal and Toronto tied on Canadian Championship titles (Montreal have a huge lead in overall Voyageurs' Cup wins, mind you).

    Hoping EDM can pull it off against Vancouver in the return leg. Glad we made it through Toronto, it's always nice to put them down.

    Unfortunately, FC Edmonton got punked again at the last minute, losing 2-1 at home (3-2 agg.) to Vancouver to set up a rematch of the 2013 final between the Whitecaps and the Montreal Impact. Btw, highlights of all Voyageurs' Cup games can be found on the CSA's Youtube channel.

    This is Vancouver's 6th final. They've lost all five that they've been in.

    Not quite... The first 3 years (2008-2010) were played as a league format, with no final. This is only the 5th year using a knock-out format - Vancouver have played in 3 (to be 4).
