Cvitanovic was elected president on December 11 and will ask Theo Krajacic to continue on the board of the Canadian Professional Soccer League to represent a club that launched in 1956. The team has put together a string of accomplishments in its rich half century existence, including a North American Championship in 1976 – the last time a Toronto professional soccer team won the title. Toronto Croatia were also Canadian champions in 1971, 1972 and 1973 and won league titles in 1992, 1995, 1996 and most recently won the CPSL Championship in 2004.
Toronto Croatia ended the 2005 season with a 13-3-6 WLT record as runners up in the Eastern Conference.
