(October 12, 2018) – OTTAWA, ON – We are well into the process of our merger with Cumberland United Soccer Club and now we have even more news to share. Please read below for an excerpt from an email sent to members re: the upcoming Special General Meeting (SGM). This meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 16 at 7pm at Gisele-Lalonde High School Cafeteria. Members (including our YDP players/parents and senior teams) are invited to attend to learn more about this exciting development.
“[There is an] agreement by both CUSC and Capital United to merge organizations as soon as possible. Both organizations agreed that a new name would be created for the newly merged club. The club naming process CUSC had started was put on hold because Capital United’s input had not been included.
[Another] important event was a call from Toronto FC interested in partnering with us
. We have been in negotiations since July and we now believe we have the makings of a great partnership agreement. We will present the key elements of the partnership and Anthony Capotosto, Director of the TFC Academy will be in attendance to talk about the partnership and what Toronto FC can bring to our club.
Please join us at the SGM and bring your kids. This promises to be a landmark event for our club and you need to be there! All members in good standing are welcome to the meeting as there will be a motion put forward to adopt a new name for the club that represents our merged clubs and the proposed partnership.
Coffee and juice will be served.”
Date: Tuesday, October 16
Location: Cafeteria at Gisele-Lalonde High School, Orleans

(August 25, 2018) – Ottawa, ON
It is our pleasure to announce that Cumberland United Soccer Club and Capital United Soccer Club have agreed to merge formally into a single entity beginning with the 2018-19 season.
Having formed a strategic alliance last year for the 2017-18 season, both organizations enjoyed a great season on the field and have been working towards taking this next step for several months.
With the changing landscape of soccer in Ontario and Canada, and the noticeable trend towards clubs working together as partners and affiliates, this move marks a huge step forward for our new single club to make an impact in the region, and province.
We will be releasing more detailed information in the weeks to come, as we embark on an exciting time of rebranding the clubs into a single new club, and building a common future together. With a firm focus on players first, and a shared values-based leadership approach, we hope to continue building a club that provides a premier soccer experience for players of all ages and levels that we can all be proud of.
Thank you for your continued support, and see you on the field!
