List of American and Canadian soccer champions

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Despite each receiving FIFA-affiliated status in 1913, both the United States and Canada have lacked a consistent, multi-division soccer system until recently. Consequently, the determination of champions has been problematic at times. The United States did not have a truly national league until the North American Soccer League in the late 1960s. Before that, there were several regional and city leagues of various levels of quality. For example, the first and second American Soccer Leagues constituted the premier level of professional soccer in the Northeastern United States, but they and teams from the St. Louis Soccer League would regularly defeat the best the other had to offer. These are only two of the most notable leagues of the regional era, as there were professional and amateur competitions in Chicago, California, the greater Western United States, Ontario, and Western Canada, among several other areas. While the creation of the North American Soccer League in 1968 brought a bona fide, national Division 1 league to the U.S. and Canada, its collapse in 1984 saw a temporary return to the fragmented regional structure. The merger of the Western Soccer League and third American Soccer League created a Division 2-level national league in the U.S. (the American Professional Soccer League), which later absorbed the Division 2-level Canadian Soccer League, which was at the time an attempt at a wholly domestic Division 1 within Canada.[1] But it was until not until the establishment of Major League Soccer in 1996 as part of FIFA's agreement to award the United States the 1994 World Cup that there was again a truly national, sanctioned first division in either country (Canada would not see an MLS team until 2007; until then the top Canadian teams resided in Division 2-level leagues).

Given all of this, there is a broad history of champions of various kinds in the history of both countries, both in leagues that comprised both nations and cups that were held in only one. This article takes into account all these competitions to compile an accurate listing of American and Canadian soccer champions with an eye towards maintaining continuity.

Background[edit]

For teams in the United States and Canada, there are three "major" domestic trophies.[2][3]

The primary focus is the league championship, a postseason knockout tournament held between the best teams from the regular season. This is presently determined via the MLS Cup. American and Canadian sports leagues typically have such "playoff" systems. These have their roots in long travel distances common in US and Canadian sports; to cut down on travel, leagues are typically aligned in geographic divisions and feature unbalanced schedules with teams playing more matches against opponents in the same division. Due to the unbalanced schedule typical in US and Canadian leagues, not all teams face the same opponents, and some teams may not meet an even amount of times during a regular season, if at all. This results in teams with identical records that have faced different opponents differing numbers of times, making team records alone an imperfect measure of league supremacy. The playoffs allow for head-to-head elimination-style competition between teams to counterbalance this.

Secondary (due to the unbalanced schedule) is the recognition of the best regular season record,[2] an accomplishment known as the league premiership in Australia and New Zealand, countries with similar league structure to the US and Canada. The holders are awarded the Supporters' Shield.

Then, there are the two countries' respective national championships: the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup or the Canadian Championship, cup competitions that are independent of league play. These are features unique to soccer in the US and Canada, as no other major team sport has such independent tournaments, and they are typically lesser-known than league play.

Internationally, available to US and Canadian clubs is the continental championship as determined by the CONCACAF Champions League, to which the United States is allocated four qualifiers and Canada one. For American clubs, the winners of the MLS Cup, Supporters' Shield, and US Open Cup all qualify, along with the regular season conference champion that does not win the Shield; for Canadian clubs, their single berth is determined by the Canadian Championship. Finally, there is the world championship as determined by the FIFA Club World Cup, a berth to which is earned by winning the Champions League.

American and Canadian soccer clubs exist in a franchise system, rather than a promotion and relegation system. As a result, Division 2 and Division 3 champions do not change levels the next season. This is standard among American and Canadian major and minor sports leagues, and is part of the franchise rights granted by the leagues. If a team was to be relegated from MLS, it would in part breach the contract between the club owner and the league. Recently, a trend has developed where a club from the lower divisions may be "promoted" via an expansion franchise awarded by Major League Soccer if they were to display a solid fanbase and secure a proper stadium, but a team winning a Division 2 or Division 3 title has no effect on their place in the soccer pyramid. Rather, the divisions are financial classifications based on requirements placed upon club ownership groups.

The results in this article come from the United States Soccer Federation,[4] the Canadian Soccer Association,[5] the Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation,[6] and the American Soccer History Archives.[7]

  • ^Note 1 - If the full histories of the national championships were included, the table would be some 150 teams long and include dozens of defunct, historical, and strictly amateur (North American Division 4 or 5) squads. As North American Soccer League teams did not compete for the national championships, and for the sake of practicality, only the modern eras of the two national championship trophies (since 1995 for the US's Dewar Cup and since the inception of Canada's Voyageurs Cup in 2002) are included in this particular chart. For full national championship histories and totals, see below.
  • ^Note 2 - The current incarnation of the franchise is a phoenix club.
  • ^Note 3 - Team currently exists as a professional minor league franchise in either the modern North American Soccer League (Division 2) or the United Soccer Leagues Professional Division (Division 3).

  • ^Note 5 - Championship awarded to Paterson when Scullin were unable to field a team for the replay, due to injuries and players under baseball contracts beginning the baseball season
  • ^Note 6 - Before the Spring 1931 season, Fall River Marksmen moved to New York City and merged with New York Soccer Club to become the New York Yankees. However, they began the 1931 tournament under the name Fall River, and as such were required to play as Fall River for the remainder of it, and won the Cup. Before the Fall 1931 season, the Yankees moved again, this time back north to New Bedford, Massachusetts. They merged with Fall River F.C. to become the New Bedford Whalers, and again won the Cup in 1932. The USSF officially credits "Fall River Marksmen" with four championships in total, and "New Bedford Whalers" with one.
  • ^Note 7 - St. Louis Soccer League team names were determined by the club's respective corporate sponsor. The team known as Hellrungs from 1929 to 1931 was also known as Stix, Baer and Fuller F.C. from 1931 to 1934, St. Louis Central Breweries F.C. from 1934 to 1935, and St. Louis Shamrocks from 1935 to 1938. As the change was only cosmetic and no relocations or mergers with clubs resulting in new rosters were made, the club's title history continues with the name changes.
  • ^Note 8 - Aggregate drawn 2-2, Championship shared when details for a third game could not be agreed upon.
  • ^Note 9 - Brooklyn Dodgers S.C. returned to their original name of Brooklyn Italians before the 1990s (the club states the change was in 1974, though later U.S. Open Cup tournaments have them registered under the Dodgers name).

Canadian National Championship[edit]

Though there were various levels of professional leagues in Canada throughout the 20th Century, remarkably, there was no multi-division cup for professional franchises that stretched from coast to coast until 2002, and even then, it was not until 2008 that this trophy was awarded via competition that was necessarily separate from regular season play. From 1913 to 2001, the highest national cup in Canada was in fact the amateur Challenge Trophy, which still continues to this day after being replaced as the highest national cup competition in Canada by the professional Canadian Championship. The Open Canada Cup existed from 1998 to 2007, but excluded the premier professional clubs and was largely limited to the Ontario area.

Western Soccer Alliance (1985–1989)/Lone Star Soccer Alliance (1987–1992)/American Soccer League III (1988–1989)[edit]
  • In 1985, several independent teams on the west coast formed the Western Soccer Alliance. Dedicated to fiscal austerity, it succeeded where the United Soccer League, founded the year before, failed. In 1987, the Lone Star Soccer Alliance imitated the success of the WSA in creating a viable regional league. In 1988, the third version of the American Soccer League, was established as a regional, east-coast league.
