The Edmonton Drillers are a Canadian Major Indoor Soccer League team.

History[edit]

On January 24, 2007, the formation of the Canadian Major Indoor Soccer League was announced along with that a series of exhibition games would take place in various markets to gauge interest. Edmonton being one of these markets, the Edmonton Drillers name has been acquired with the expectation of several of the players from the NPSL edition of the club would be reunited for these exhibition matches.

The Showcase Series games were held at Rexall Place. However, the Drillers have moved to the Servus Credit Union Place in St. Albert for the 2008 season. The 2008 CMISL season will see the Drillers kick off January 19 and 20 with games against Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Calgary, all played in Calgary. Prior to that they will play two exhibition games in Prince George, BC, December 1 and 2, as well as a four pre-season games against Saskatoon in December and early January. CMISL is teaming up the PASL for the 2008/09 season. All 4 teams from the CMISL will be a part of the PASL 2008/09 season.
