3 new Canadian pro teams on the way

Today was an exciting day for soccer fans in Canada as 3 teams, Edmonton FC, Ottawa Fury FC and Highlanders FC out of Victoria are applying for entry into the NASL. This would be the level just below the MLS. The details in terms of stadiums and league approval have yet to be determined by all three teams could be up and running by as early as next season, though it's more likely that Ottawa and Highlanders would start in the 2012/13 season. Edmonton FC is practically in the NASL for next year. This would bring the total amount of pro soccer clubs in Canada to 7 excluding the CSL teams which are based in Ontario  except for the Montreal Impact academy.
