The Canadian Premier League announced the remainder of the 2021 regular season schedule presented by WestJet. The 2021 CPL season has all 8 Clubs playing a 112-match season with 28 matches per Club in a single table format. The season began on Saturday June 26 in Winnipeg, Manitoba with The Kickoff Presented by Volkswagen with each club playing eight matches (32 games total).
Upon the completion of The Kickoff on July 24, Clubs will return to their home markets to continue the season where they will play an unbalanced schedule – 16 games against teams in their region and four more against teams they already played against in Winnipeg.
Wanderers matches started August 2, 2021, and end on November 6, 2021, playing out their remaining 20 matches. The return to home markets kicks off with 2020 CPL Champions Forge making the short trip to Toronto for the ComeOn! Match of the Week vs York United at the newly refurbished York Lions Stadium. The Home Opener for the Wanderers was played shortly after.
“We are beyond excited for fans to return to the Wanderers Grounds this season. It’s been a long and difficult 16 months and we are happy to give our loyal fans some joy and help bring energy back to our downtown.”
With confirmation that there will be a minimum of 10 matches played at the Wanderers Grounds in 2021, Derek Martin and HFX Wanderers FC anticipate a sold-out crowd when the players finally return home.
“We continue to work closely with public health to build a plan that follows the guidelines outlined in Phase 4 to ensure the safe return of fans to our venue. We are very thankful for the hard work put in by Nova Scotians to get vaccinated, as that gives us this opportunity to help our community regain its strength, through the power of sport”.
