“We are thrilled to announce this update to soccer fans across Canada as we take a big step toward our season opener in April 2025,” said Matheson. “After years without a professional women’s domestic soccer league, the Northern Super League and its six founding clubs will fill a significant void in Canada and bring about meaningful change coast to coast. We are proud to launch with a name that will instill pride in all those who play and love the game. With a brand that is fresh, we welcome all who want to be a part of this exciting moment in Canadian sports history.”  

About the League

  • All six Northern Super League clubs are owned and operated by independent ownership groups.
  • The Northern Super League will feature a 25-game regular season schedule followed by playoffs and a National Championship in Fall 2025.
  • All clubs will operate with a salary cap structure and minimum salaries aligned with established leagues worldwide. 
  • While creating a home for Canadian players remains a key focus, the Northern Super League will also feature world-class international talent to help elevate the overall quality of play and drive further development.
