Toronto, ON (December 31, 2021) – The Canadian Premier League (CPL) and the Fath family today announced a transition of operations of FC Edmonton to the League office, effective immediately.
This is the continuation of a well-planned strategy to develop new ownership for one of the League’s Founding Clubs, while ensuring its long-term success in Edmonton.
The Canadian Premier League and the Fath family have been working for several months to identify and assess potential new owners and that process is ongoing. To ensure a smooth transition, the CPL has been involved in the Club’s day-to-day business and football operations and will continue to do so until a transition to a new, permanent ownership group is completed.
Tom Fath will remain with FC Edmonton as a strategic advisor throughout the process while Alan Koch will remain as the head coach and work closely with the CPL football operations department to build a competitive roster for the 2022 season.
“No group has done more for soccer in Edmonton than the Fath family. Their work to give local players a pathway and a purpose in many ways inspired the creation of the Canadian Premier League,” said David Clanachan, Canadian Premier League Commissioner. “The League thanks Tom and Dave for their unwavering commitment and contributions to the growth of the professional game and to the growth of Canada as a soccer nation.”
