Canadian Premier League return to training: Week 5 In photos

As the Canadian Premier League inches closer to returning to play, the eight teams are slowly ramping up their preparations.

All players are, of course, still adhering to health protocols and keeping to the CPL’s multi-stage approach to full training. Some clubs have even added to their rosters as a potential season looms.

Atlético Ottawa added Gianfranco Facchineri on loan from the Vancouver Whitecaps on Monday, while York9 FC signed CPL-U SPORTS Draft pick Isaiah Johnston and mutually parted ways with Peruvian attacker Adrián Ugarriza.

Here’s what week five looked like in photos.
