Voyageur’s Cup: Guelph v. Wanderers

The Voyageur's Cup
The best trophy in Canadian soccer.

There is a possible future — still far from guaranteed — where matches like this are a regular reality, up and down a Canadian game that pits local sides against each other.

It’s appropriate that, tonight, this game will also see guys from Guelph playing for Halifax and a former Wanderer playing for Guelph. There are always the clich├ęs about magic of the cup this or upset that, but the Voyageur’s Cup predates it all, hailing from a time when all of this was was a complete fantasy. Maybe by the end of the century.

Canadian soccer fans back then believed it was possible and made it a reality. This one’s for them, and to all still to come.
