WATCH: Saskatchewan supporters chant ‘We want CPL’ during SK vs. TFC II tilt
In a bit of grassroots soccer news, a group of selects from Saskatchewan took on Toronto FC II during the SK Summer Soccer Series in Saskatoon, hosting the visiting junior Reds to cap off a weekend of soccer celebration in the city.
And, local supporters group Bridge City Firm was in full voice on the day, chanting “We want CPL” after the match in a call for expansion into the province.
The healthy crowd of fans took in a number of soccer matches during the weekend, which also featured Juventus academy product Alessandro Busti starting in goal for TFCII. And, after a spirited affair, the SK selects defeated TFC II 2-0 to bring the crowd into good cheer.
We see you, Saskatchewan.
