The 2023 Futsal Canadian Championship, hosted by the Calgary United Soccer Association in partnership with Tourism Calgary, took place over the weekend at the Seven Chiefs Sportsplex in Calgary, Alberta.
The Futsal Canadian Championship has been hosted annually since 2015, although the competition was put on hold for two years because of the pandemic before it made its return in April 2022. New this year, was the inclusion of the Women’s division after a landmark decision by Canada Soccer to expand the tournament and hold the first-ever Women’s Futsal Canadian Championship.
In the Women’s division, Scarborough GS United represented Ontario following an impressive performance at the 2023 Ontario Futsal Cup. Scarborough was dominant throughout the tournament, outscoring its opponents 20-3 through the first three games, but came up just short in the Gold medal game, losing by a single goal.
In the men’s division, 9 de Octubre of FC Emery represented Ontario following a tough fought match in the 2023 Ontario Futsal Cup. In the Canadian Futsal Championships, Octubre once again prevailed in a few tightly contested matchups, but ultimately went undefeated and took home the gold, finding a way to win when it mattered most.
