Nutrilite Canadian Championship

Overview

Played as a three-club round-robin tournament the past three years, the Nutrilite Canadian Championship has provided great drama for soccer fans across the country, as Whitecaps FC, Toronto FC, and the Impact have battled for Canadian supremacy and the country's lone spot in the CONCACAF Champions League. After winning the inaugural competition in 2008, Montreal had a memorable Champions League campaign that took the Quebec-based outfit through the group stage to the quarterfinals. In 2009, Toronto FC claimed their first piece of silverware in improbable style, as a 6-1 victory over the Impact in the tournament's final match edged The Reds past Vancouver in the tournament standings. TFC then showed the consistency needed to repeat as Voyageurs Cup winners in 2010 with two wins over Montreal and two goalless draws with Whitecaps FC.

The value of winning the Nutrilite Canadian Championship not only begins and ends with claiming the Voyageurs Cup and the bragging rights as Canada's top club, it offers the winning side the opportunity to represent Canada in the CONCACAF Champions League and play the top clubs in North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. The winner of the CONCACAF Champions League then earns the opportunity to represent the confederation at the FIFA Club World Cup, which takes place every December.

The FIFA Club World Cup is a seven-team tournament that brings together the club champions of the six FIFA confederations and the champion of the host nation's top division.
