Following the Futsal Canadian Championship hosted in Calgary, Alberta (with matches played in Tsuut’ina Nation), the inaugural Player-Development Program Championship will be hosted in Edmonton, Alberta (PDP U-17 Cup and PDP U-15 Cup for boys and girls) from 14 to 18 August. Canada Soccer’s Toyota National Championships will be played across six divisions from 9 to 14 October in three host venues: Surrey, British Columbia for the men’s Challenge Trophy and women’s Jubilee Trophy competitions; Cape Breton, Nova Scotia for the U-17 Cup (boys and girls); Quinte West, Ontario for the U-15 Cup (boys and girls).

Alongside the 12 divisions for Canada Soccer’s national amateur competitions, the regional 2024 Canada Soccer Masters competitions will be hosted in Surrey, British Columbia and St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.

Since 2018, Canada Soccer’s national amateur competitions have featured clubs from all 13 provincial and territorial soccer organisations. Along with the 17 teams that competed in the Futsal Canadian Championship in April, there will be 28 teams that compete in the Player-Development Program Championship in August and then 62 teams that compete in the Toyota National Championships in October.

This year marks the 100th edition of Canada Soccer’s national amateur competitions since they were first inaugurated in 1913 after the organisation’s establishment. Over the years, those competitions have featured different divisions and age levels, with the inaugural Dominion of Canada Football Championship switched to a strictly amateur competition in 1962. Since 2008, Canada Soccer’s national amateur competitions have been complemented by the Canadian Championship which today features men’s professional and semi-professional clubs from Major League Soccer, the Canadian Premier League and League1 Canada.

At all age levels, Canada Soccer’s national amateur competitions provide a meaningful soccer experience for host cities and participating teams, including the players, coaches, support staff, officials and volunteers.
