A legacy built over generations. Come on you Tartans!
115+ Years of History
Founded in 1907 as the Edmonton Caledonians Athletic Club
On April 11, 1907, local Scotsmen organized the Edmonton Caledonians Athletic Club to play in the Edmonton City Football League Series. The Caledonians played their first-ever match on May 13, 1907 against St. Paul's Football Club on the Second Street Grounds, losing 2–1. Two days later, the Caledonians would get their first-ever win, defeating the All Saints Recreation Club 2–1 led by goals from Patterson and Hope.
In October 1913, the Caledonians would win their first provincial title, capturing the Bennett Shield over the Calgary Callies at Diamond Park in Edmonton by a score of 2–0.Following the amalgamation of Edmonton's Caledonian Society and St. Andrew's Women's Association, the club was reorganized as the Edmonton Scottish Soccer Club on May 23, 1937.
In 2016, we capped off an undefeated season by winning the Challenge Trophy to become Canada Soccer national champions for the first time — having previously finished as runners-up in 1992, 2012, and 2015.In 2019, our club was honoured by the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame as an Organisation of Distinction.
