Canada Soccer Nation Inside
COVID-19 Updates | National Teams | Coaches | Referees | Member Associations and Clubs | Players, Fans, Supporters
Canada Soccer Nation celebrates the best of our country and our sport when we unite as players, coaches, referees, volunteers, and fans on and off the pitch.
Not being on the pitch means we are all playing an important role to curb the spread of COVID-19. Off the pitch and in our homes, we continue to stay connected through our game with all of the great photos and videos being shared. Canada Soccer wants to help keep all of us connected by bringing the sport to Canadians in their homes through Canada Soccer Nation Inside which will include online education, National Team player features and access, grassroots activities and digital engagement.
No one knows when we will be back on the pitch, but until then we ask you to stay safe and join us as we kick off Canada Soccer Nation Inside.
