CONCACAF champion and Canadian soccer legend Paul Stalteri will be inducted to the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame ahead of a Men’s International Soccer match in Toronto this 2 September. The two-time Canadian Player of the Year and German Bundesliga winner will be honoured in front of the home crowd before kick off to the Canada-Jamaica match at BMO Field.

Stalteri was a CONCACAF champion, helping Canada win the 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup in the United States. He represented Canada at the FIFA Confederations Cup Korea/Japan 2001 and took part in three cycles of FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. At the club level, he won both a Bundesliga title and a German Cup (DPF-Pokal) with Werder Breman in 2004.

“I am honoured to be inducted into the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame,” said Paul Stateri. “I would like to thank family and friends as well as my teammates from Canada to Europe from the youth teams up to the Men’s National Team.”


Canada will face the two-time CONCACAF Gold Cup runners up Jamaica on 2 September. The Toronto match serves as a re-match from the Canada-Jamaica quarter-final match at the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Tickets to the match start as low as $20 (plus applicable fees) and can be purchased online via Ticketmaster.ca, by phone at 1.855.985.5000, or in person at the BMO Field Box Office. As the match takes place during the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), all match tickets include free admission to the CNE grounds on match day. The 2 September match kicks off at 19.00 ET with complete ticket details at canadasoccer.com/tickets.

The Canada Soccer Hall of Fame induction is one of two pre-match ceremonies that fans can watch before the 19.00 local Canada-Jamaica kick off. Canada Soccer will also salute five active players in the 2 September lineup: Marcel de Jong, Nik Ledgerwood, and Tosaint Ricketts for surpassing 50 international appearances; Alphonso Davies for winning two 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup awards and the 2016 Canadian U-17 Player of the Year award; and Atiba Hutchinson for winning his record fifth Canadian Player of the Year award.

Stalteri of Brampton, Ontario becomes one of 175 players, coaches, referees, and builders honoured by the Canada Soccer Hall of Fame. As part of the Class of 2017, both Stalteri and Amy Walsh were honoured this year, with the Walsh induction celebrated before a Women’s National Team match on 13 June in Toronto.

Stalteri won Canadian Player of the Year honours in 2001 and 2004, also finishing as the runner up in voting in 2005. He set the Canadian record for most international "A" appearances in 2010, finishing his career with 84 matches. He also set the Canadian record with 20 matches in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. In 2012, he was recognised as of the top 100 men's footballers as part of Canada Soccer's centennial celebration.

Stalteri grew up in Brampton, Ontario and played for Brampton YSC and then Malton SC, winning national titles at the U-14 and U-19 level. He represented Canada at both the FIFA U-17 World Cup Japan 1993 and FIFA U-20 World Cup Malaysia 1997. At the club level, he played for Toronto Lynx, Werder Bremen, Tottenham Hotspur, Fulham FC, and Borussia Mönchengladbach.

The Canada Soccer Hall of Fame captures and preserves the history of Canadian soccer, honouring athletes and builders of the game and serving as a library for editorial, promotional, and educational needs.
