Frontier League Excludes Canadian teams

Last season, the Frontier League could not play due to COVID19. To avoid the same scenario for 2021, the league has taken necessary steps.

With the strict rules the Canadian government has applied, there may be a big chance teams cannot cross the Canadian -US border.

In order to avoid the cancellation of the 2021 Frontier League season, the league has decided to cut the Ottawa Titans and the Triis-Rivières Aigles.

In a statement the Québec Capitales annouced the news.

For those who cannot read French, in short it says the league will exclude the two aforementioned teams from participating. To have an even number of teams in the league, the Québec Capitales and the Trois-Rivières Aigles will create a Province of Québec team that will serve as a road team for the first half of the season and which will be under the helm of Capitales manager Pat Scalabrini.

Since the 2019 announcement of the merger between the Frontier Legue and the CanAm League, in which the latter became a division of the merger league, the Frontier League has been hit by bad luck. The league was forced to cancel the 2020 season and just when things started to look better as the league added the Tri-City ValleyCats as new franchise, it is forced to cut two teams temporarily.

The Ottawa Titans will now focus on 2022 as their inaugural season. Also Trois-Rivières and Québec will have to switch on their survival mode with another season without any revenue and food and drink sales.
