Pacific FC will play 14 home games at Westhills Stadium this season, including a game on Canada Day against the new Canadian Premier League (CPL) team, Atletico Ottawa.

Last week, the CPL released its full 2020 regular season. Matches begin with league openers on April 11 and continue through to Oct. 4.

Each CPL club will play 28 games, 14 home and 14 away, and will move to a single table format, expected to provide fans with a more competitive season.

This season, the CPL said over 90 per cent of the matches will be played on holidays or weekends. Friday night games will also be introduced and all eight clubs will play on Canada Day. The final matches of the season will be played at the same time on Oct. 4.
