FC Edmonton, Valour, Forge to battle for spot in 2019 CONCACAF League

Canada Soccer revealed Tuesday it will use the home and away matches in the Canadian Premier League regular season between FC Edmonton, Forge FC, and Valour FC to determine who advances to the Preliminary Round of the 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf League.

Consistent with seeding for the Canadian Championship based on membership, these three inaugural teams will be provided with a unique opportunity for this season to earn the Canada 2 spot in Scotiabank Concacaf League.

Starting in 2020, the 2019 Canadian Premier League champion will earn the right to be designated as Canada 2 in Scotiabank Concacaf League.
