http://www.northernstartingeleven.com/canadian-premier-league-the-story-so-far/ Sounds like a lot of CFL and NHL ownership groups are interested in getting into the league. my guess at the 12 interested cities: Vancouver/Victoria Edmonton Calgary Saskatoon Regina Winnipeg Hamilton GTA GTAx2 Ottawa Montreal/Quebec Maritimes (No idea if cities with MLS teams will be interested.) Will have similar rules to CFL about Canadian Content, which may extend to management and coaching. The league will be separate from the current MLS franchises in Canada. I believe the past few years, the CSA has restricted applications for pro teams because of these plans.
