FC Edmonton was a Canadian professional soccer club based in Edmonton, Alberta. The club was founded in 2010 and competed in the North American Soccer League (NASL) from 2011 to 2017. The club went on hiatus when NASL ceased competitive operations before the cancelled 2018 season. Edmonton competed in the Canadian Premier League from the league’s inaugural season in 2019 until 2022. The team began playing its home games at Foote Field, a 3,500-seater stadium on the University of Alberta campus. From 2012 onward, FC Edmonton’s home field had been Clarke Stadium. To meet the demands of the Canadian Premier League, FC Edmonton asked the City of Edmonton to help increase the capacity at Clarke Field to 7,000.
