History

The Serbian White Eagles were established in 1968 as an amateur team in the then National Soccer League, where they played until 1980, when the club withdrew from the league, becoming an amateur club in the process. They remained such until February 2006, when they joined the CSL, becoming the most successful expansion club in the league's history. The Serbian White Eagles were embraced by the Serbian Canadian community and have averaged the highest attendance of any team in the CSL.[1]

In 2008, the Serbian White Eagles outlasted Trois-Rivières Attak over a rain-drenched 120 minutes and penalty kicks to win the Canadian Soccer League championship.

Assistant to head coach Dušan Prijić is Igor Ćirić.

At the 2009 final game, playing a man short for most of the second half, Trois-Rivieres Attak took the game into overtime, then penalty kicks to win the CSL Championship at the BMO Field in Toronto on a October 10th, 2009. The Attak, playing with some of the best young players in Quebec in just their third season in the Canadian Soccer League, defeated Serbian White Eagles, a team with several former professionals from Europe with a history in Canadian soccer going back to 1968. The game was scoreless through 90 minutes, then 30 minutes of overtime before Trois-Rivieres outscored the Toronto-based Serbian Eagles 3-2 in the penalty kick decider. The game was a repeat of the 2008 final when these two teams met in a thriller won by Serbian White Eagles, also with penalty kicks. Serbian White Eagles won the International Division under coach Rafael Carbajal, changing to coach Igor Ćirić for the play-offs part of the season.

Academy

Serbian White Eagles FC is currently affiliated with the Toronto Falcons junior and midget level teams. The official academy is set to be launched in 2009. The Serbian White Eagles FC academy is a professional training and development program for young elite Canadian soccer players.
