Christine Sinclair, Diana Matheson reveal pro Canadian women’s soccer league set for kickoff in 2025

December 5, 2022

Professional women’s soccer is coming to Canada. Christine Sinclair and former national teammate Diana Matheson announced plans to launch a domestic professional women’s league in 2025, featuring eight teams throughout Canada.

The still-unnamed league would begin in April 2025 with an inaugural champion crowned sometime in the fall. Each team will have at least one Canadian international, and the goal is to bring home about half of the over 100 Canadians currently playing abroad. cbc
