#1 ranked Brampton City United face off against their long time rivals #2 Toronto Boca Juniors in the CPFL Championship match on Sunday April 22nd in Toronto at Seneca College at 4:45pm. Who will win the rubber match that has seen some huge wins for both sides?

in their first match this season.

The game will be the third contest between the two rivals this season with each trading wins in the first two. They have met in big matches before, most notably during the Toronto Futsal League Finals in 2010 when Toronto Boca Juniors shut what was then called the Golazo FC by a 4-0 score.

In what was arguably the greatest comeback in Canadian futsal history, Brampton (last year under the banner of Futsal Club Toronto) marched back from a 5-1 deficit late in the 2nd half to force overtime where they would complete the improbable comeback to take the Canadian title by a 6-5 score.

Coming into the championship finale, Brampton have produced an very strong season having only lost once – against TBJ – and were able to hold off a difficult Real Toronto squad last Thursday for the CPFL Regular Season crown in a 5-3 thriller. Their record including playoffs this season is 11-1-1. They will look to defender Alvaro Yaques and young playmaker Daniel Chamale to produce big performances in the final.

Toronto Boca Juniors were able to clinch 2nd place along with a 1st round bye and defeated Real in the 2nd portion of last week’s semi-final double-header by a 10-6 margin. TBJ will be relying heavily on CPFL MVP candidate Rodrigo Quiroga, Defender of the Year candidate Kevin Correa, as well as Josh Lemos, who will be going against his cross-court rival Blanche not only for the championship but also for the Futsal 5’s (All-Star Team) and Goalkeeper of the Year Awards.

The atmosphere will be electric as both hardcore supporters and many youth futsal clubs will be in attendance to enjoy not just the match but also the awards ceremonies for the Toronto Futsal League and, of course, the CPFL which announced their nominees earlier this week. DJ Pat Montalto will be on hand as well as the return of Silvia Delgado who will be creating her culinary arts that have been a legendary staple of the Ontario futsal scene for the last 10 years.

Parking is free in the Newnam Campus Parking Lot 5 and all proceeds from the event will go to fund underprivileged youth players who cannot afford to lay.
