The 905 Derby is a soccer rivalry between Canadian Premier League clubs, Forge FC and York 9 FC, both based in Southern Ontario.[1][2][3] The rivalry gets the "905" nickname from the 905 area code, which encompasses both Hamilton and York Region.[4] Forge and York 9 are the only Ontario-based teams in the league and are the two closest in proximity, with less than 65 kilometres (40 mi) separating their home stadiums.
