Cavalry FC clinched the league title over the weekend.

After beating York United 1-0 on Saturday, they secured the number one spot in the Canadian Premier League with two games remaining.

The club hasn't lost a match since August 11 and have 14 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses for 49 points and with only two games left in the season, second-place Forge FC can't make up the difference as they have 42 points.

Cavalry also have a +15-goal difference, the top in the league, and are currently tied with Valour for goals so far this season with 41.

And they will also become the first club in league history to hoist the Shield trophy.  It's a new trophy for the regular season winner.  The club won the regular season previously in 2019 and 2020 but this is the first time a regular season trophy has been awarded.

The trophy won't be presented until after their last match of the season on Saturday, October 7 at a home game against Pacific FC.

Shield Trophy

Something extra special also happened because the club clinched the title, they secured a berth in the 2024 CONCACAF Champions Cup.

In 2024 Atco Field at Spruce Meadows, the host pitch for the club, will be host some of the best soccer teams from the USA, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and Canada.

And soccer fans will be flooding the BMO Centre in Calgary on Sunday, October 8 for the Allstate Soccer Show and they're bringing in some big stars.

Canadian soccer superstar Christine Sinclair will be at the event along with other elite players including members of Cavalry FC. And you'll be able to talk to players, get autographs, enter to win prizes and see the Shield trophy.

Tickets for the 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. event are only $5.00 with 100% of all proceeds going to KidSport Calgary.

Once the regular season wraps the playoffs start October 14.
