Ontario Soccer is thrilled to announce the selection of 50 deserving soccer organizations as recipients of the Circle K Celebration Festival Grant program, aimed at supporting grassroots soccer initiatives across the province. This initiative, made possible through the generous support of our Premier Partner Circle K, aims to bolster local soccer communities and enhance the development of young athletes.

The Circle K Celebration Festival Grant program received an overwhelming number of applications from community organizations throughout Ontario, each demonstrating a commitment to fostering youth soccer and promoting inclusive sporting environments.

Representing a ten-fold increase over the five grants originally awarded to Ontario Soccer organizations in 2019, this program highlights Circle K’s tremendous support of the growth of grassroots soccer in communities right across our province.

The Circle K Celebration Festival Grants are designed to provide both funding and branding support to Ontario Soccer sanctioned soccer organizations already planning to host an age-and-stage appropriate year-end grassroots festival or jamboree to further improve the accessibility to these important community events, while enhancing the participant experience.

Selected recipients will be eligible to receive a $750 Hosting Grant ($375 provided upon successful and selected application, $375 provided at the conclusion of the event, once all hosting requirements have been met) and a brand package consisting of co-branded signage and promotional give-away items.
