As the old year comes to a close and the new one peaks over the horizon, I think we can all just hope for better times in 2022.
We’re here to guide you into the new year with another packed episode of the AFTN Soccer Show and we’re back with another end of season review, this time turning our attention to the Canadian Premier League.
BC is home to the new CPL champs Pacific FC and we look back at their season, and those of the other seven sides, in a season that saw a lot of ups and downs, drama, controversies, three managerial casualties, and some great football played.
We chat about the high points for each team and look ahead to what they need to do to improve next season. Plus we look at the CPL coming to the lower mainland and where that fits in with the upcoming launch of League 1 BC.
