Our journey began with the spark of an idea
The beautiful game, played coast-to-coast
United by soccer, under one flag
And with a promise to you that we’ll always hold true
Our league was made for Canadians, by Canadians
The journey was long, but you brought us here
Like the ocean, we will be formidable force
And all of this was possible because of you.
You, our supporters, turned this idea into a movement
You, our believers, helped guide us along this path
To all Canadians, in all our communities, I’d like to thank you for your unending passion
And welcome you all to the Canadian Premier League
Remember, always, that this league is for you.
And remember, too, the words that define us:
We are many, We are one.
– David Clanachan, Commissioner, Canadian Premier League
