The Ontario Soccer Association will start a semi-professional men’s U-23 development league next spring.

League1 Ontario plans to bring the top teams in the province together in a single competition as the provincial organization offers its players, coaches and referees an elite-playing environment.

Canada Soccer is fully supportive of the Ontario Soccer Association’s League1 Ontario project,” said Tony Fonseca, Canada Soccer’s technical director. “We trust it will quickly become an integral part of Canada’s Long-Term Player Development strategy and a valuable addition to the national players’ development pathway.”

When the league launches, early next year, it’s anticipated that it will feature between eight and 12 of Ontario’s best amateur and semi-professional teams.

From May to September these teams will compete across the province in an environment that will serve as a stepping-stone toward the elite level, especially for young talent.
