Canadians in Champions League finals


Recommended Posts

From a discussion in the Alphonso Davies thread I got curious about how many Canadians, man or woman, that have played in a Champions League final, in any confederation. My scientific process for researching this was to look up on Wikipedia to see if I could find who played in each final, and looked at the flag beside their name. Here is what I found. Kadeisha Buchanon and Alphonso Davies are the only players to win the final! Note that if a Canadian represented a different country internationally, they didn't make this list.

AFC Men (2003-2005 no data. 2006-present)
2018 - Adam Hemati Lost w/ Persepolis (subbed out second leg)

AFC Women (2019)
Round robin, no final.

CAF (1997-present, about half of them no data)
None

CONCACAF Men (2009-present)
2011 - Will Johnson Lost w/ Real Salt Lake (both legs full games)
2015 - Patrice Bernier Lost w/ Montreal (subbed in both legs)
2015 - Maxim Tissot Lost w/ Montreal (subbed in both legs)
2018 - Jonathan Osorio Lost w/ Toronto (both legs full games)
2018 - Ashtone Morgan Lost w/ Toronto (subbed out first leg, played full second leg)
2018 - Jordan Hamilton Lost w/ Toronto (subbed in second leg)
2018 - Jay Chapman Lost w/ Toronto (subbed in second leg)
2020 - Mark-Anthony Kaye Lost w/ Los Angeles FC (full game)

CONMEBOL Men (only checked from 1990-present)
None

CONMEBOL Women (no data until 2015)
None

OFC (2007-present)
None

UEFA Men (1955-present)
2020 - Alphonso Davies Won w/ Bayern Munich

UEFA Women (2002-present)
2017 - Kadeisha Buchanon Won w/ Lyon
2017 - Ashley Lawrence Lost w/ Paris Saint-Germain
2020 - Kadeisha Buchanon Won w/ Lyon

well Concacaf was only checked since 2009 but what about the past MLS finalists ? LA Galaxy (1997 & 2000) and DC (1998)

i know that Aunger was a DC member that times but did he made the finalmatch in 1998?

Good question. I just spent about 30 seconds checking and couldn’t find any lineups for those games. I originally didn’t go further back mostly out of laziness and a bit due to back in those days the MLS teams didn’t have to leave the USA to win it all, which makes it more Mickey Mouse in my opinion. But if someone can confirm/prove any other Canadians were in a continental club final, I’ll be happy to add them to the list.

I’m hoping we get another lady or two on the list on Sunday!
