League1 Ontario (L1O) is a Pro-Am league designed to bridge the gap for those elite players with aspirations to continue playing the game at a professional level and now will also serve as the stepping stone to the Canadian Premier League (CPL). Many of our past players have gone on to sign professional contracts all over the world. Visit League1 Ontario’s website for stats, standings, and more!
Not every club in Ontario is a L1O club. L1O is a standard based league and clubs have to meet specific specifications (Technical, Financial, Facilities, and Operations) in order to be granted a L1O license. Pickering Football Club is proud to be one of the ten original founding Men's teams in League1 Ontario (L1O), which was established in 2014. As well has one of eight original founding Women’s teams, which was established in 2015.
