Canadian Soccer League’s standing with the Canadian Soccer Association
Posted on 11 February 2013 in Canadian Soccer Association
The Canadian Soccer Association Board of Directors has received and endorsed the recommendation provided by the Division II viability study conducted by James Easton and the Rethink Management Group. The model of a regional semi-professional development-focused league presented in the study was deemed the most realistic starting point in trying to restructure the Canadian Men’s competitive environment and better align with our efforts in player development.
The Canadian Soccer Association informed the Canadian Soccer League of its vision and decision to move towards a regionally-driven structure commencing the 2013 season. As such, as of 11 February 2013, the Canadian Soccer League is no longer sanctioned by the Canadian Soccer Association.
The Canadian Soccer Association will support the provincial sanctioning body, the Ontario Soccer Association, in its discussions with the Canadian Soccer League on the new framework.
