The League1 Ontario Men’s All-Stars will take on the Première Ligue de Soccer du Québec All-Stars (PLSQ) on July 19 at the Ontario Soccer Centre Stadium. Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m.

The League1 Ontario Women’s All-Stars will play Ontario Soccer’s U-18 Womens’ Canada Games squad, where the best-of-the-best of female soccer talent from around the province will be showcased July 25 at the Ontario Soccer Centre Stadium. Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m.

The League1 Ontario All-Star Games serve as another opportunity for Ontario’s best athletes to showcase their talents to a wider audience.

“League1 Ontario continues to be one of the best platforms for helping players get to the next level in their careers,” said Dino Rossi, League1 Ontario commissioner. “The opportunity to play off against our provincial rivals is another chance to see Ontario’s best players, taking on the best competition, in an environment that would put a spotlight on Canada’s talent.”

League1 Ontario All Stars will be selected via voting conducted amongst team head coaches and league officials. The League1 All Star rosters, as well as the coaching staff appointed to lead these teams, will be announced on July 6 for the men and July 11 for the women, along with more event information.

For Ontario’s U-18 Women’s team, this competition will serve as a final send-off event before heading to Winnipeg, Manitoba for the 2017 Canada Summer Games taking place July 29-August 4.  

“This will be a good test for our Canada Games squad,” said Bryan Rosenfeld, Ontario Soccer Manager of High Performance. “With some of our players already in League1 Ontario for club competition, there will be some familiar faces on either side of the pitch and we expect to see a lot out of both squads.”
