Ottawa, Ontario – The Canadian Soccer Association announced today it has honoured former CSA President Terry Quinn and Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors Chairman Steve Stavro with Life Memberships in the CSA at the Annual General Meeting in Halifax.



The two become the 19th and 20th members among a distinguished list of individuals who have dedicated their time and efforts towards the development of the sport of soccer in Canada.



Quinn served as Director of Finance with the CSA from 1986-1991 and was voted President in 1992, serving six years. During his Presidency, he also acted as Deputy Chairman of the CONCACAF Youth Commission, was a Director with the Canadian Olympic Association and a Member of the FIFA Discipline Committee. For the past six years he has been the Chairman of the CSA Appeal Committee, a member of the Board of Directors and a member of the Executive Committee.



From 1980-1990 Quinn fulfilled several roles with the Quebec Soccer Federation including that of Vice-President (1983), Treasurer (1982-1990) and Member of the Board of Directors and Executive Committee. In 1990 he was a Director of the Canadian Soccer League’s Montreal Supra.



“It was an honor being president for six years and helping to develop the game to where it is now,” said Quinn. “I am truly grateful to receive this distinction and I thank the CSA for their gesture.”



Stavro has been involved in Canadian soccer for more than 50 years. He was one of the founders of the Eastern Canadian Professional League and a co-founder of the Continental Soccer League in Toronto. He owned a franchise in the United Soccer Association, which was a professional league in Canada and the United States which imported teams from Europe to play against, until the U.S. teams merged with the National Professional Soccer League. Stavro has also been instrumental in bringing top European Clubs to Toronto for exhibition matches over the years.



“This is a tremendous honour and I very much appreciate this acknowledgment by the CSA for making me a Life Member,” said Stavro. “I have been involved in many different ventures in my life but soccer has always been one of my passions and I am delighted to receive this recognition for my love of the beautiful game.”
