Bio

Jim Fleming

James Fleming... soccer family (son Sean)... married to wife Kathleen (they had four children) and they moved to Canada in 1968... worked for the Government of Alberta (1968 to 2000).... presented with the FIFA Order of Merit in 2002... attended the Final Match at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 in Vancouver...

said Fleming in 1985, “I am very happy for the players and coach Tony Waiters in reaching (the FIFA World Cup) Mexico. All of them overcame trials and tribulations in magnificent fashion in the qualifying rounds. In short, I am a very proud Canadian”... said Fleming in 1985 of his first term as Canada Soccer President, “we opted to emphasize the elite athlete element or dimension to enrich the overall program and receive recognition from the government and other funding agencies. Either your vision of soccer is (the) recreational pursuit or it encompasses the whole range of competition, including recreation. I see it as the latter”...

said Terry Quinn in 1997, “under (Fleming’s) leadership and particularly during the final two years of his (first) Presidency, Canada Soccer experienced its greatest change and the very best results achieved on the international field of play” (at the 1984 Olympic Games and 1985 CONCACAF Championship qualifying for the 1986 FIFA World Cup)...
