Forge FC will be one of the CPL’s founding clubs, joining Cavalry FC (Calgary), FC Edmonton, HFX Wanderers FC (Halifax), Valour FC (Winnipeg) and York 9 FC in York Region, Ont. A Port City team in B.C., and another in Ottawa are expected to join.

“Now we’ll have our own team to cheer for as well as our own professional league that our country’s best and brightest young stars will aspire to play in,” said Forge FC co-founder Bob Young.

“The ‘Forge’ perfectly represents both Hamilton’s industrious history as well as our region’s ambitious commitment to continuous advancement. Our soccer club will mirror the fine qualities of our eclectic city as Forge FC integrates into the heart of the Hamilton community.”

Hamilton’s new soccer club will play its home games at Tim Hortons Field with seating capacity capped at 14,000 spectators.

Their team colours will consist of ‘spark orange, platinum steel and waterfall white.’
