I don't really follow sports but I get the impression that Canada's smaller markets are seriously underserved by the professional leagues that currently exist. Hopefully this new soccer league can tap into that potential.

In larger cities like Toronto there are many professional teams. In mid-sized and smaller US and European cities there are still college sports and major soccer leagues. Meanwhile, in Canada, there are cities like Quebec and Halifax where a lot of people are interested in sports but there are limited, modest professional teams. The Quebec City region east to the Maritimes has about 3 million people.
