Released Thursday (Feb. 3), the 2022 season schedule features eight total clubs playing 112 regular season matches.

They will play a total of 28 home and away matches leading up to the CPL Playoffs, which will take place on Oct. 15 and 22. The top four clubs at the end of the regular season will take part in a two-leg semi-final for the right to play in the single-match CPL Final hosted by the highest-seeded club, set for Oct. 29.

Entering its fourth season, Canada’s pro soccer league crowned Pacific FC champions in 2021 after Forge FC had won back-to-back titles.

All matches this season will be broadcast exclusively via the CPL’s media partner, OneSoccer. Matches will be broadcast at, and on Telus ch. 980 and the FuboTV app.

Before Forge FC begins a new CPL campaign, they will play the biggest match any CPL club has ever taken part in. Mexican soccer giant Cruz Azul will make their first-ever trip to Tim Hortons Field for the first leg of a Concacaf Champions League Round of 16 match on Feb. 16 at 8 p.m.
