Play. Inspire. Unite.
The Ontario Cup, Ontario Soccer’s Provincial Championship, is the largest competition of its kind in Canada. As one of the oldest and most prestigious amateur sporting events in the country, the Ontario Cup was first staged in 1915 and has operated continuously since, with the exception of the World War II period and during the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020.
The 2021 Ontario Cup will mark the 105th year of the competition.
Ontario Soccer, in consideration of the current COVID-19 restrictions, has modified the Ontario Cup competition schedule for 2021. The new schedule reflects a later start date that will see the Ontario Cup commence in July. The revised Ontario Cup schedule is now posted on OntarioSoccer.net.
The Ontario Cup Entry Deadline, which was April 28, 2021, has now been extended to May 26, 2021.
The deadline for approval of Ontario Cup team entries has been extended to June 2, 2021.
Please note that should the 2021 Ontario Cup competition be cancelled, all teams that have entered will receive a full refund.
The 2021 Ontario Cup Entry Form is available on OntarioSoccer.net.
With the ever-evolving changes to the COVID-19 situation, Ontario Soccer recognizes the need for flexibility and potential modifications to the competition structure, as time progresses.
Ontario Soccer’s highest priority is, of course, our participants’ safety and ensuring that the competition is held in alignment with the Government of Ontario’s health and safety protocols.
Ontario Soccer will continue to carefully monitor the public health situation, and we are prepared to make further changes to the Ontario Cup format, as well as the dates, if necessary.
In the event that the format does change, it will become a Knock-out format with a two game guarantee.
Please note that all teams in Under 13 to Under 17 divisions will be guaranteed to be scheduled for at least two games in the competition.
Please check the Ontario Cup of OntarioSoccer.net for further updates.
