Canada Soccer Men's EXCEL stream

As part of the Canada Soccer Pathway, the Men’s EXCEL stream—led by Canada Soccer in collaboration with our provincial partners as well as the country’s professional clubs and private academies—will ensure more of Canada’s exceptional young players find their way into the best competitive environments. Together, we are creating a new
national structure to channel talent into professional clubs, and, ultimately, to our National Teams.

Over time, this fundamental transformation will produce: more top Canadian players with the world-class skills needed to be truly competitive on the international stage.

The Men’s EXCEL stream is a new approach by Canada Soccer to unite and strengthen the ways we identify and develop our most promising young athletes from across Canada to help drive elite men’s soccer forward.
