Paul Beirne has been appointed President of the Canadian Premier League, the new domestic men’s professional soccer league that will debut in the spring of 2019.

As President, Beirne will manage the day to day league operations of the Canadian Premier Leauge. His primary focus will be to ensure all elements are in place for the league’s debut in spring 2019 and its long-term success. Beirne, hired as the first employee of the league as Project Manager, has been leading the efforts to develop the league over the past 18 months.

“I have travelled extensively across the country over the past year and have seen firsthand the passion and enthusiasm that Canadians have for professional club soccer,” said Beirne. “The grassroots support for the Canadian Premier League has quite simply been overwhelming and will be the foundation to make this league a success.”

Widely regarded as one of Canada’s leading soccer executives, Beirne was formerly the Vice-President of Business Operations for Toronto FC. In 2007, Major League Soccer honoured Beirne with the prestigious Doug Hamilton Executive of the Year Award in recognition of his innovative work on TFC’s ground-breaking launch as the league’s first Canadian franchise. In addition to his work with TFC, Beirne held senior executive roles with the Toronto Raptors and Ottawa Senators, and oversaw the commercial business for the Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club in its aggressive pursuit of promotion to the English Premier League.

 

An historic season from Toronto FC, who had a record setting regular season on the way to the 2017 Canadian Championship crown, a Major League Soccer Supporter’s Shield, and MLS Cup Finals victory and, has earned the club the 2017 Canada Soccer Moments title.

The domestic title earned them a place in the 2018 CONCACAF Champions League where they will face Colorado Rapids in the opening round. The club’s Supporters Shield as regular season champion, earned with 69 regular season points was an MLS record. The team also repeated as hosts of the MLS Cup Final in a rematch of the 2016 Final against Seattle Sounders FC and earned Canada’s first-ever MLS Cup.

A CanadaRED prize pack was given away to one entrant of the 2017 Canada Soccer Moments campaign which included signed Canada Soccer National Team Jersey and other CanadaRED items. Congratulations to Lise Bourque from Rusagonis, NB who was randomly selected.

In 2016, the Canada Soccer Moment title went to the Women’s National Team whose second bronze medal in as many Olympic football tournaments was a first at a summer Olympics in 108 years.
