    Inter-Provincial Cup sets stage for open Voyageurs Cup in 2017

    The first step to eventually opening the Voyageurs Cup up to teams below the fully professional was made today.

    The country's two semi-pro leagues, the Première Ligue de Soccer du Québec (PLSQ) and League1 Ontario, have agreed to play a inter-provincial cup between the two league's champions.

    According to multiple sources familiar with the situation, the CSA has started planning to eventually include the winner of the Inter-Provincial Cup in the Canadian Championship.

    It was stressed that such inclusion will happen no sooner than 2017 and only after the IPC includes representation from British Columbia/the west. The vision is of a season ending event similar to hockey's Memorial Cup, with the winner advancing to play in the following year's Canadian Championship for the Voyageurs Cup.

    The first match this year will be played at the Bell Centre in Brossard (8000 Boulevard Leduc, Brossard, QC) on November 1st at 8 pm and the second game will take place on November 8th at 8 pm at the Pickering Soccer Complex (1975 Clements Road, Pickering, ON).

    CS Longueuil was the regular season champion in the PLSQ, with just one loss. Toronto FC Academy captured League1 honours with an undefeated season.
