"I am very excited that this is the first time the Newfoundland and Labrador Soccer Association will play a Challenge Cup league game at a neutral site and hopefully, this is only the beginning," said NLSA senior men's vice-president Gord Dunphy.

"There is no better way of promoting the sport than exposing the game at its highest level into regions of our province that have both a strong soccer association and good minor registration numbers. The town of Clarenville has both."

Earle Pike, who is originally from St. Lawrence, is president of the Clarenville Area Soccer Association.
