Intro

The Toronto and Calgary Premier Leagues will attract thousands of sports enthusiasts from local and surrounding communities, along with hundreds of participating elite athletes, and reach hundreds of thousands of interested people for two months of entertainment this summer. 

You can capitalize on the community atmosphere and phenomenal growth of these premier sporting events.

The Premier League was launched in 2017 in Toronto as the first step in establishing professional indoor volleyball in Canada. We provide professional competition for elite volleyball athletes across Canada, while supporting the growth and availability of post-secondary competition and opportunities.

Through this mission we are working closely with our National (NSO) and Provincial (PSO) sport body partners to create influence on a national scale.

League Format

Athletes are selected to teams through an annual Athlete Draft (see video above), our most exciting and anticipated event of the year. They represent the BEST athletes in Canada - current Professionals, past professionals with careers in Canada, and the top University athletes looking to go pro.

Calgary + Toronto

Four men’s and four women’s volleyball teams compete twice against each other over the course of six league nights in June and July. Following regular season competition, teams face off in semi-final playoff matches, followed by the Premier Cup Finals and Canada Cup Finals.

Athletes do not pay to compete in the Premier League. All teams are owned by private owners. Top athletes are contracted by the League for their participation.

Each league attracts 300-1,000 spectators each night, based on venue capacity.
