This past weekend, September 13-14:
In past years, it has not been uncommon to have one District Association stand out in terms of the number of Ontario Cup Champions.
This year Peel Halton Soccer Association and Elgin Middlesex Soccer Association were the dominant districts.
Of the 20 divisions, PHSA won six Ontario Cups with EMSA taking four – which account for 50 per cent of the titles.
The remaining 10 Ontario Cups were won by seven other districts, with Durham Region S.A., Hamilton and District S.A., and York Region S.A. each bringing home two titles each.
Ontario Cup Champions by District
In terms of individual clubs, the distribution of champions was quite diverse, with only one club winning multiple Ontario Cups: Brampton Youth Soccer Club.
Although the majority of the Ontario Cup Finals were played over the September 6-7 and 13-14 weekends, a handful of Finals were played in July to accommodate the U18 and U21 division players who attend college or university. In addition, the U15 Boys Tier 1 and U15 Girls played their Finals in August at the Ontario Summer Games.
The following charts recap the results of all of our Ontario Cup Final Round matches.
