Canada Soccer has launched a new digital platform to serve Canada Soccer Nation and prepare for the opportunity that co-hosting the FIFA World Cup™ will bring in 2026.
The new website brings together a modern, open-source content management system with integrated digital asset management tools and features, and a new custom database to house player, competition, and organization stats, profiles, and media integrated with a world-class competition management solution.
The result is a fan-first digital platform centralized around providing dynamic, multimedia coverage of Canada Soccer’s National Teams and National Competitions and providing fans with access to the wealth of digital assets that are created to promote the players, coaches, referees, and administrators that impact the game in this country.
“A modern, globally-recognized association requires a dynamic, industry-leading digital platform that provides us with the opportunity to keep pace in the new digital economy,” said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer’s General Secretary. “As we have learned from the global pandemic, digital technology adoption is vital and CanadaSoccer.com becomes the stable base from which we can achieve the goals we have set under our Canada Soccer Nation strategic plan.”
With a redeveloped information architecture, the new platform aims to raise the bar for coverage and promotion of Canada Soccer’s Coach Education and Certification Program, National Referee Program, and its Safe Sport Roster which includes key club development initiatives such as the Club Licensing Program and National Soccer Registry initiatives.
“For fans of the international game, specifically domestic fans of Canada’s National Teams and programs, CanadaSoccer.com is now and will continue to develop into the go-to resource for media, stats, and information on the beautiful game in our country,” said Montopoli.
For the first time, aspiring players and their families can visit CanadaSoccer.com to search the Club Data base as part of CanadaSoccer.com/Play to find Canada Soccer Licensed Clubs in their community. CanadaSoccer.com/Play also features details on its Safe Sport Roster, unanimously adopted by Canada Soccer’s membership in 2019 to provide robust programming to ensure safe, developmentally-appropriate training environments to keep players engaged with the game throughout their lives.
Coaches looking for information on the Coach Education & Certification Program can visit CanadaSoccer.com/Coach to find information and contacts within Canada Soccer’s Member Associations as well as enroll in Canada Soccer’s Children’s, Youth, B, and A Licence programming.
Referees on the Canada Soccer National List of Referees and those aspiring to reach the highest levels of the game will find appointment, profile, and contact details for Member Association referee leads at CanadaSoccer.com/Referee.
Fans, supporters, and participants looking to help cheer on Canada’s National Teams and National Competitions can find subscription information, digital toolkits, group fan engagement and ticket purchase opportunities at CanadaSoccer.com/Fans.
Administrators, executives, board members, and interested members of the Canadian soccer public can find staffing, board, governance, discipline, and membership-focused documentation, media, and news related to Canada Soccer at CanadaSoccer.com/About.
