The Centre Circle Awards are Ontario Soccer’s highest level of recognition and are presented annually to deserving soccer leaders and organizations nominated on the basis of their outstanding contributions to the development of soccer in Ontario and Canada.
Ontario Soccer recognizes leaders annually through the Centre Circle Awards and for a second straight year due to the global pandemic, the 2021 Centre Circle Awards will be presented in a virtual ceremony on Sunday, October 3, 2021.
The deadline for submitting Centre Circle Award nominations to Ontario Soccer has been extended to Thursday, August 5, 2021.
New this year, Ontario Soccer is excited to announce the inclusion of the MilkUP Future Leaders Award as part of the Centre Circle Awards.
This award will not only recognize young soccer leaders in each of five regions (Eastern Ontario, Central East, Central West, Western Ontario and Northern Ontario) for their outstanding contributions to their soccer community, but an education grant will be presented along with the award to assist these youth in their educational endeavors. Ontario Soccer has partnered with the Dairy Farmers of Ontario to develop this Award.
