The CPL announced on Wednesday the launch of the The Island Games, a multi-stage competition to be held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, that involves all eight teams, and kicks off on Aug. 13 and concludes in September.
All matches will be played behind closed doors in a sequestered environment at UPEI Alumni Field in Charlottetown with the five-substitute rule in effect. The opening game will be a rematch of Finals 2019 with Forge FC facing Cavalry FC on Aug. 13. Every match from The Island Games will air live on OneSoccer.
