Black History Month:

As part of Canada Soccer’s ongoing commitment to amplify the stories of our black athletes and leaders, we are excited to share some of the iconic moments in Canada Soccer history over our social media channels throughout the month of February. This organization has been shaped by the countless contributions of our black athletes, leaders and supporters. Canada Soccer will be recognizing those who laid the foundation for future generations of black Canadians involved in soccer, as well as holding up a microphone to those with important stories to share from our black communities.
