    Canadian Championship to begin April 24

    OTTAWA, Ontario - The Amway Canadian Championship will open April 24 with semifinals featuring four-time defending champion Toronto FC, Montreal, Vancouver and Edmonton, the Canadian Soccer Association announced Friday.

    The format will follow the one used the past two years, with two-leg semifinals, April 24 and May 1, followed by the winners facing off in a two-leg final, May 15 and May 29.

    The winner will claim the Voyageurs Cup and qualify as Canada's representative to the CONCACAF Champions League.

    Semifinal pairings will need to wait until the end of the Major League Soccer season on October 28 to be determined. The team with the best record, either Vancouver or Montreal, will face the second-division and fourth-seeded FC Edmonton, while the runner-up will face Toronto.

    Montreal has 40 points with three games remaining, while Vancouver has 38 with four games to play.
