My name is Dan Kruk and I'm the publisher and editor of's only website dedicated to the Canadian men's and women's national teams.

At this point we're still in the process of creating content with an expected 'go live' date of March 15th, ten days before the CANMNT's crucial WCQ match against Mexico here in Vancouver.

To be clear, the interest in both the CANMNT and CANWNT is at levels not seen in Canada since the men last qualified for the World Cup in 1986. As a forty-eight year-old man, I've watched a lot of poor Canadian soccer and to be honest, we're still not at a level that could be deemed respectable elsewhere in the soccer world. However, with MLS and NASL clubs in Canadian cities, interest in the sport--and by extension, in the national programs--has skyrocketed.
