A TRIUMPHANT RETURN . . .

With the Fall '20 & Spring '21 seasons being conducted as 7-a-side affair, the 2020-'21 cups season never began.

On Saturday, June 4, Longdale was decked out for a celebration of the CVSA and the complex for a cup doubleheader, as Sporting 804 racked up yet another major title, and their second Arthur Ballner Trophy, with a 4:2 victory over upstart Brambly Park FC

The Murtaughs won the Copa Bruce.

The 40 year-old virgins of the CVSA, Screaming Eagles FC, finally broke through to take their first CVSA Major Title, dethroning Sporting 804 and finishing one standing point ahead of Partizan Richmond FC to take the Premier Division. Congrats Screaming Eagles, keep the titles coming!

Richmond Celtic FC, left for dead as a serious concern after a run of lackluster finishes, arose to take the First Division dethroning second-placed Richmond City FC. Team 804, a rebranded outfit of a team that was drummed out of the league during the fall, decided that playing by the rules would be an interesting change, kept their rosters legal, and took the Second Division with an 8-0-0 record.

In the Third Division, Legend of Ivory Stripes FC followed up on their Fall '21 Fourth Division title with a second consecutive crown, and are exicted about the CVSA Cup and the Second Division next fall.

The Fourth Division went to the Top of the Tabol FC, their second consecutive divisional crown after taking the Fifth Division in Fall '21. In the Fifth Division, Wiseguys FC kept the trend going, taking the title after winning the Fall '21 Sixth, and finished the 2021-'22 primary session unfeated and untied. The Sixth Division went to Humphrey Pickup FC, and newcomers Jamaica House FC snagged the Seventh Division.

The Murtaughs won the Coed Competitive Division.

Newcomers AFC Richmond brought in a Ted Lasso vibe, and took the Coed Recreational Division with an 8-0-0 record. Believe!


In the Veterans Division, a split occured in an attempt to keep the venture relevant, with the Screaming Eagles Cosmos taking the Veterans Competitive, and Atlas taking the Veterans Recreational.

FALL '21


11-A-SIDE RETURNS! 12 months after the completion of the 2019-'20 CVSA Cup & Copa Bruce, 11-a-side play returned to the CVSA. Since the aborted Spring '20 season closed in March 2020, the CVSA had been 7-a-side to accomodate the virus. All of that is past us, and the Fall '21 season came back strong, with 92 teams spread across eight open divisions, two coed divisions, and the Veterans Division.

Sporting 804 - Fall '21 Premier Division Champions


The more things change, the more they stay the same. Sporting 804,
undefeated and untied, took their sixth consecutive Fall Premier Division title. Like the weather, everyone complains, but nobody ever does anything about it.

Richmond City FC, on the prowl for their first CVSA major title, laid waste to the First Division with a another undfeated & untied season, and a 34:2 goal differential. Richmond FC returned from a sabbatical in the Southside during virustime, and subdued Lightning FC in a winner-take-all championship match on the last day of the regular season.

In the Third Division, the title is vacated. The presumed divisional champions were found to have used unregistered members of the VCU Men's Soccer team, using fake ID's at gametime, and forfeited their final regular season game, as well as their Round of 16 CVSA Cup match.

The Fourth Division went to the Legend of Ivory Stripes FC, and the Fifth Division was won by Top of the Tabol FC. Wiseguys FC took the Sixth Division, and Home FC Home snagged the Seventh Division, both teams finishing with perfect 8-0-0 records.

The Murtaughs won the Coed Competitive Division.

Balls 'N Dolls took the Coed Recreational Division by a game in a rare competitive session for the Coeds.


In the Veterans Division, the Screaming Eagles Masters returned the top of the division, reclaiming the title they lost in the spring from Strongs Old School.
  • Premier: Sporting 804
  • First: Richmond City FC
  • Second: Richmond FC
  • Third: Vacated
  • Fourth: Legend of Ivory Stripes FC
  • Fifth: Top of the Tabol FC
  • Sixth: Wiseguys FC
  • Seventh: Home FC Home

  • Coed Competitive Division: The Murtaughs
