In all, CBC Sports will bring you four duplicate Saturday broadcasts on CBC TV, CBC Gem, CBC Sports and the CBC Sports app starting at 1 p.m. ET every Saturday.
The 2020 season will kick off with an eight-club first leg where each CPL team will play once, with the top four clubs advancing to the six-match group stage of the second round.
The Island Games will be played behind closed doors in a sequestered environment at Alumni Place in Charlottetown and will see all eight clubs – Pacific FC (Vancouver Island, BC), FC Edmonton (Edmonton), Cavalry FC (Calgary), Valor FC ( Winnipeg)), Forge FC (Hamilton, Ontario – 2019 Canadian Premier League Champion), York9 FC (York Region, Ont.), Atlético Ottawa (Ottawa) and HFX Wanderers FC (Halifax) – face off until what the top two clubs stay in is a one-match final to be crowned 2020 Canadian Premier League champions.
As there is no advantage on the pitch, 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 spot in the CONCACAF League 2021.
