Format[edit]

Unlike most North American sports leagues, there will be no playoffs. The title will be awarded to the team with the most points at the end of the 16-game regular season.[1] League1 Ontario also expressed the desire to organize a final game between their champion, and the winner of the other Division 3 league in Canada, the PLSQ.[2]
There will also be a cup competition for the 10 teams, the final representing the last game of the season. This cup, however, has nothing to do with the Amway Canadian Championship, although the Canadian Soccer Association has hinted at the possibility of including more teams in the future.[3]

Players[edit]

Cup[edit]

In addition to the regular season, the 2014 League1 Ontario season also contained a cup tournament, which was run separately (and consisted of different games) from the rest of the regular season. The initial ten teams were divided into two groups of five, with each team facing the other teams in their group once. The top two teams from each group advanced to the knockout stage.

Group Stage[edit]

The teams were divided into two groups of 5, with the best 2 teams in each group qualifying for the semifinals. With the removal of Internacional de Toronto, Group A was reduced to four teams.
