The league experienced another major increase in match attendances with some clubs averaging over 1,000 fan support per game, with the Serbian White Eagles and Trois-Rivières Attak averaging the most. The season was also notable with the introduction of the inaugural Locust CSL All Star Game played on July 28, 2007 at Windsor Stadium.

Changes from 2006 season

Oakville Blue Devils moved to Scarborough, Toronto in order to become the Canadian Lions, and were transfered to the International Conference. The CSL maintained its presence in Quebec with the owners of Laval Dynamites securing a deal with the Montreal Impact of the USL First Division to form the Trois-Rivières Attak which served as a farm team for the Impact.

Format change for Rogers Cup finals

Due to Toronto Croatia and the Serbian White Eagles playing for the Championship Cup, the CSL decided to change the format to a two-leg game rather than the standard knockout. The first game will be played on Friday, October 27, and will be played in front of only Croatia fans, with the team serving as the home side. The next day, October 28, the White Eagles will be the home side, and their fans will be the only ones permitted at the game.
