Player Kiril Dimitrov, transferred from Bulgarian second league club PFC Belasica to Serbian White Eagles in the Canadian Soccer League in 2009, and who played the 2014 season for SC Waterloo, believes Scarborough, Ontario deserves a professional soccer team.
The Bulgaria-born midfielder is spearheading the launch of SC Scarborough in the CSL First Division, one of three new clubs to join Canada’s top professional league.
Scarborough is accompanied in the 12-team CSL top division by new entries Toronto Atomic Selects, Brantford Galaxy and Milton SC. Brantford is a team returning following a three-year absence, and Milton SC has been elevated from the CSL Second Division.
“I live in Scarborough, a great soccer community, which has a very good ground in Birchmount Stadium, one of the sites earmarked for the Pan American Games, but we are discussing the possibility of our team playing there as well,” said Dimitrov, following his club’s acceptance in the CSL.
