2 October 2012
The 2012 Canadian Soccer Association National Championships, Canada’s premier amateur competitions from the senior level to the U-14 youth level, kick off this Wednesday 3 October and run through Monday 8 October. Over 1,500 athletes from across the country will convene in four communities to decide this year’s national champions: in Winnipeg, MB for the men’s Challenge Trophy and women’s Jubilee Trophy competitions, in Sydney, NS for the U-18 Cup (men and women), in Charlottetown, PR for the U-16 Cup (boys and girls), and in Sydney, NS for the U-14 Cup (boys and girls).
“For the athletes, coaches and officials, participating in the Canadian Soccer Association National Championships represents more than the chance to compete on a national elite level,” said Canadian Soccer Association President Victor Montagliani. “It is an opportunity to proudly represent their province or territory within the Canadian soccer community while pursuing their dreams and development through the beautiful game of soccer.”
Parents, fans and players alike can follow the competition as it unfolds on canadasoccer.com/nationals where daily tournament reviews, schedules and results will be posted. All final scores will also be posted via Twitter @CanadaSoccerEN.
Teams are also invited to share their experience by posting their pictures and videos of the tournament on Canada Soccer Facebook page.
In addition, as 2012 marks the celebration of the Canadian Soccer Association’s 100th anniversary, both the Challenge Trophy and Jubilee Trophy championship matches to be played on Monday 8 October will be streamed live on the web. Details will be released via canadasoccer.com/nationals as the tournament finals approach.
