Clarifying sanctioned competition for Ontario Soccer members
Placeholder Image

Ontario Soccer has become aware that some members participants and / or organizations are looking to create makeshift ‘leagues’ this summer. We are aware teams from adjoining Districts are looking to gather in one District to register with a Club or Academy and create a ‘league.’

Ontario Soccer is now strongly cautioning those organizations considering participating in any of these makeshift leagues, competition and camps.

Participation in these types of activities, which are not following Government of Ontario health orders, or the Ontario Soccer Return to Play protocols, can have consequences. Sport activities are being monitored by Public Health Units and local municipality by-law enforcement.
