Canada Soccer announces sites for two national championships and Annual Meeting of the Members
Canada Soccer – Canada Soccer has announced venues for three important events on the 2017 soccer calendar: the Futsal Canadian Championships will take place in Kingston, Ontario; the Annual Meeting of the Members will take place in Whistler, British Columbia; and the National Championships Challenge Trophy and Jubilee Trophy competitions will take place in Langley, British Columbia (Challenge/Jubilee).
“These three events will showcase much of the important work that’s been accomplished in making Canada a leading soccer nation,” said Canada Soccer General Secretary Peter Montopoli. “The National Championships is the marquee amateur soccer event each year and its updated format aligns our technical leadership’s preferred development model. The Futsal Canadian Championship is gaining momentum as an event representing an important evolution of the official indoor version of soccer in Canada”
From 21-23 April, Kingston will host the third annual Futsal Canadian Championship. The 2017 finals will be played at Queen’s University and, for the first time, feature a provincial representative from Saskatchewan facing futsal clubs from Ontario and Québec.
From 4 to 9 October, Langley will host Canada Soccer’s 2017 National Championships Challenge Trophy and Jubilee Trophy finals. The two adult competitions will bring together the champion amateur clubs from across the country.
Alongside the two adult competitions in October, Canada Soccer will host national youth finals in New Brunswick and Alberta. The U-17 Cup (boys and girls) will be hosted by the Fredericton District Soccer Association while the U-15 Cup (boys and girls) will be hosted by the Calgary Minor Soccer Association.
On 6 May, Whistler will host Canada Soccer’s 97th Annual Meeting of the Members. The annual event will also feature Canada Soccer annual award banquet.
