A new era in Canadian soccer began last weekend with the start of play in the professional Canadian Premier League.

In front of a sold-out crowd Sunday night in Westhills Stadium in Langford, BC, the HFX Wanderers lost their first game 1-0 to Pacific FC. During a slow start for Halifax in the first half, Pacific's Hendrik Starostzik headed the ball into the net in the 23rd minute, scoring the first-ever goal for Pacific.

The Wanderers almost tied it up four minutes later and continued to fight for the entire game, but fell short. Watch the recap here:


After that tough opening game, the Wanderers are heading to Halifax for their debut home game in the seven-team league. They hope to have better luck with their fans cheering them on against Forge FC, the Hamilton club that played to a draw in its first game. 

The game happens Saturday, May 4 at the Wanderers Grounds stadium at 2pm. Tickets range from $15 to $35.
