The EODSA has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure our membership is updated on any situations which will directly impact them from a soccer point of view. The EODSA is following Ottawa Public Health advisories and will inform our members of any relevant updates for Ottawa.
The EODSA has also been in close communication with Ontario Soccer as they are getting updates from Canada Soccer on this situation.
Following discussions with the national governing body, input from relevant government agencies and medical experts, Ontario Soccer has made the difficult decision to immediately suspend all sanctioned soccer activities in the province until further notice but a minimum end of June.
Ontario Soccer sanctioned activities include, but not limited to, all competitions, training, coach and match official education and team building activities.
