NASL Announces Rule Change Regarding Canadian Players ... an-players

The NASL announced a change to its roster rules on Thursday, stating that Canadian players will now be considered domestic on the rosters of American clubs.

With the new rule in place, any American or Canadian player on an NASL roster will count as domestic and therefore will not affect a club’s international player tally.

“Canadian players have played a big role in the development of our league on the field,” NASL Interim Commissioner Rishi Sehgal said. “We believe that this change will help us become better contributors to the growth of the game, not only in Canada, but in the U.S. as well.”

This is huge. Allows for Canadian Nationals currently playing for FC Unattached to play at a high level. I'm super excited to see more Canadian content in our league.

FC Edmonton has ruined me. I care for no other sporting club like I do for the Boys in Blue.

I am excited too. It will be interesting to see if this gets challenged by, say, a Mexican or Caribbean national. Some people were already commenting that it might.
