At this point, games will not have fans in attendance.

“The CPL will continue to monitor health and safety protocols in all our Club’s cities at which point the potential of clubs returning to their home markets in front of supporters will be re-evaluated,” according to Cavalry FC.

FC Edmonton is scheduled to kick off the 2021 season with a match against Atlético Ottawa.
