The teams will be named after Serie A teams. At this point there is only 6 teams so it will be a short season. Its a start.

League is a go, Thursday and Sunday's at the infamous Adanac Park. The league will have 5 teams in it this year and look to grow after getting off the ground again. Zenga is spot on, teams will be wearing official kit from Serie A teams (ie. Juventus, Roma, AC Milan) and the final will be on Italian Day at the Italian Center in June. 18 player roster with 3-4 imports on every team.

Slight correction. Thursday night games are at Clinton Park, Sunday doubleheaders at Adanac. The rest is correct.

There is a remote chance of a 6th team before it gets started. The league will start on Mothers day, will not play the Sunday of Victoria Day weekend unless absolutely necessary, and will have the final at Beaconsfield on the Sunday of Italian Week (June 21).

More info to follow.

I guess if there is any money involved weavers will coach again,3 years no championships,that league was good but in my opinion will be a ghost town again...too bad,actually if you started an over 30 league with 2 under & 3 imports the league will not be full of gang bangers who say they are from EAST VAN but live in north burnaby,all the kids nowadays are all about white boots & Hair gel

will the legend ARNIE MEERS be involved for the 25 year:confused:

Here are a few more details:

The rebirth of the league is being organized by the Italian Canadian Sports Federation (ICSF).

Start date: May 10, 2009
End date: June 21, 2009 at Beaconsfield Park, the final day of Italian Week.

Games will be Thursday nights at Clinton Park and Sunday doubleheaders at Adanac Park.

Currently there are 5 teams. Under the current format, one team will not make the playoffs.

The teams are named after Serie A clubs:

Juventus -- managed by John Audia
AC Milan -- Rino Consiglio and Sal Cuccione
Fiorentina--Giovanni Valente
Roma--Mike and Paul Favaro
Inter Milan (possibly Palermo) --Mimo and Joe Marrello

The teams will be outfitted in authentic kit from the same supplier.

The league has BC Soccer approval and has a full set of rules and regulations.

There will be qualified referees and assistant referees likely selected from those who referee in the VMSL. The VMSL referee coordinator, Angelo Pulice, will coordinate referee assignments.

Teams will have a maximum of 18 players, 14 of whom must be of Italian heritage.

The draw for the schedule will be March 30, 2009.

Inquiries about the league including opportunities to play, volunteer, sponsor, etc. can be directed to the following email address:

italianleague@telus.net

The organizers are excited about the rebirth of the league and hope to successfully grow it in the coming years. We look forward to seeing you all at the parks.

Regs, I see you have never experienced a Sunday afternoon at the Croatian Picnic Grounds watching the Croatian Summer League.... A lot of beverages and great food with some 7 v 7 Soccer.... Season 8 is right around the corner..... :bronco::knvb::wa:

Thanks, much of the credit must go to the current ICSF president, Sam Pantusa, who has worked very hard getting this off the ground. The individuals committed to running the teams must also be commended.

It should be a lot of fun.

For Regs, I am not sure how the tree works with the summer alignment of the field crossways across the two winter fields, but you are welcome to it! :)

Stay away from the Friulli Tree old Reggy, it doesn't want any former Abruzzo players around, it may fall over.

Good on ya getting the league going, it at one time, was one of the best leagues around, with some fantastic players playing in it, and some not so good.
