OneSoccer partners with CHCH TV for Sunday afternoon series

August 13, 2020CHCH TV and MEDIAPRO Canada today announced a partnership that will see broadcast and streaming coverage of the Canadian Premier League 2020 season – taking place in Charlottetown, PEI and known as The Island Games – on CHCH platforms beginning August 16. Coverage will consist of five consecutive weeks of Sunday broadcasts, available exclusively on CHCH TV starting at 3 p.m. ET (4 p.m. AT) each week. All broadcasts will be produced by MEDIAPRO.

For CPL fans in Ontario, CHCH TV is available to over 92% of households equipped with an over-the-air signal, cable, or satellite. Outside of Ontario, supporters from coast to coast can watch CPL action streamed live online at, or on select cable providers in major Canadian markets.

The first Sunday match kicks off this week (Sunday, Aug. 16) at 3 p.m. ET (4 p.m. AT) at UPEI Alumni Place – Turf Field as Hamilton’s Forge FC and 2019 Canadian Premier League Champions take on FC Edmonton.

The 2020 season will begin with an eight-club first stage where each CPL team will play each other once (28 game total first phase), with the top four clubs to the second round six-match group phase. The Island Games will be played behind closed doors in a sequestered environment at Alumni Place in Charlottetown, PEI and will see the eight clubs – Pacific FC (Vancouver Island, British Columbia), FC Edmonton (Edmonton, Alberta), Cavalry FC (Calgary, Alberta), Valour FC (Winnipeg, Manitoba), Forge FC (Hamilton, Ontario – 2019 Canadian Premier League Champion), York9 FC (York Region, Ontario), Atletico Ottawa (Ottawa, ON) and HFX Wanderers FC (Halifax, Nova Scotia) battle it out until the top two clubs remain to compete in a single-match Final to be crowned the 2020 Canadian Premier League Champion.

Since there is no home-field advantage it will be a one-match Final to crown the 2020 Canadian Premier League Champion who will be awarded the North Star Shield and a 2021 CONCACAF League berth.
