Sudbury removed from W-League

USL News Release

Friday, April 20, 2007

TAMPA, FL -- United Soccer Leagues announced today that the Sudbury Canadians have been removed from the 2007 W-League alignment and schedule and their franchise rights have been terminated effective immediately.

“It is unfortunate to have to make such a decision at this point in time,” said USL Executive Vice President and COO Tim Holt. “However, those partnerships forged to assist the club in meeting the standards for a W-League franchise this season have not materialized and the team is no longer in the necessary position to ensure fulfillment of its 2007 season commitment.”

The schedule for the Northern Division of the W-League will remain 12 games. All dates for home matches have been preserved within the schedule changes with two being replaced with exhibitions.
