Canada's two NASL teams meet for the first time ever in the domestic cup tournament.It hasn't been the greatest start to the season for the two Canadian NASL teams.
FC Edmonton and the Ottawa Fury are both winless over the first two weeks of the league campaign, and on Wednesday the two sides will meet for the first time ever -- with domestic bragging rights on the line.
The expansion Fury side will be looking to get its first win in club history, and it would be special if it came against its lone Canadian NASL cousin. Ottawa heads into Wednesday's Amway Canadian Championship clash after having dropped its inaugural home opener in agonizing fashion, and the Fury will be looking to give the home fans something to cheer about.
On the other side of the field, Edmonton is a relative veteran of this competition. The Eddies have competed for the Voyageurs Cup in the previous three seasons, going toe-to-toe against Canada's three MLS sides. The results haven't been kind, with the Albertans dropping all six of their matches and allowing a combined 14 goals against.
With another second division side entering the fray, Edmonton might have its best chance at finally earning a victory.
The match kicks off at Ottawa's Keith Harris Stadium at 7:30 p.m. EDT, and it will be streamed live at canadasoccer.com.
