Canada Soccer is pleased to announce that 39 clubs in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario have been provisionally granted the Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licence. 

As the highest amateur youth club designation in the Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program, the National Youth Club Licence recognizes the highest achieving organizations from across Canada. The Program is a key component to Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster that was announced with unanimous support by its membership in May 2019. 

“We are pleased to announce the exemplary 39 National Youth Club Licence holders that have worked diligently over the past 12 months to demonstrate a willingness to improve, to collaborate, and most importantly to raise the level of youth football in our country,” said Jason deVos, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development. “Each club worked with Canada Soccer and their respective Provincial and Territorial Member Association to define a roadmap of standards designed to improve the experience for all who participate in the game.”  

The organizations have been granted the National Youth Club Licence for a period of two years and have created a collaborative work plan to ensure that they continue to meet the requirements and progress to further achieve the standards set by Canada Soccer. National Youth Club Licence holders display characteristics and demonstrate behaviours aligned with the highest expectations of governance, administration, infrastructure, and technical; support their Provincial and Territorial Member Association and Canada Soccer Pathways; and must participate in standards-based leagues in their Province or Territory by 2020. 

Canada Soccer’s Club Licensing Program was launched in 2017 with the Canada Soccer Professional Club Licence. Canada Soccer announced the expansion of the program to youth soccer in 2018 in collaboration with Provincial and Territorial Association Members and incorporating international best practices.

Canada Soccer's Disciplinary Committee has announced its decisions related to the mass confrontation at the completion of opening leg of the Canadian Championship Qualifying Round 2 Match 5 between Forge FC and Cavalry FC held Tuesday 4 June 2019 at Tim Horton Field, Hamilton, ON.

Forge FC and Cavalry FC have both been found to have failed to ensure their players and/or officials conduct themselves in an orderly fashion following the incident and that and their behavior in participating in the incident amounted to improper conduct.

As such, both teams have been fined in the amount of ten thousand dollars ($10,000 CAD) to be partially suspended ($5,000 CAD) until 31 October 2019. Should either Forge FC or Cavalry FC be sanctioned for another offence during this period, the suspension will be automatically revoked and the full sanction applied.

As a result of personal hearings held for both Cavalry FC's Jordan Brown and Forge FC's Tristian Borges, in respect of their involvement in the mass confrontation, Canada Soccer's Disciplinary Committee announced it found both players guilty of misconduct with Brown and Borges both fined $500 and warned against further misconduct.

Canada Soccer is investigating allegations that racial comments were made at the end of the Canadian Championship match Forge FC v Cavalry FC on 4 June.

This investigation is separate and distinct from the charges already laid by Canada Soccer upon both teams for failing to ensure their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion after the final whistle in the same match.
