Canadian soccer clubs in international competitions

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of Canadian soccer clubs in international competitions. Canadian clubs have participated in competitive international soccer competitions since at least 1975 when the Serbian White Eagles entered the 1975 CONCACAF Champions' Cup.

No Canadian team has won any CONCACAF competition, but in 2015 and in 2018, CF Montréal (then the Montreal Impact) and Toronto FC, respectively, reached the finals of the CONCACAF Champions League, losing both times. Toronto FC lost the 2018 edition of the Campeones Cup.

Qualification for CONCACAF competitions[edit]

Starting in 2023, three Canadian clubs will qualify each season for the next edition of the CONCACAF Champions League:[1]

If a CPL club were to hold multiple qualification slots, then the next CPL club(s) with the most regular season league points would earn the remaining slot(s). If the Canadian Championship winner were to hold multiple qualification slots, then the runner-up would fill the slot; should the runner-up hold multiple qualification slots, then the highest ranked Canadian Championship semifinalist would earn the slot.[1]
