Ontario Soccer continues to feature exclusive interviews with the three keynote speakers, which will take you behind-the-scenes and into the minds of three of the preeminent sport leaders in our country.

Each offers something unique to their area of expertise and will illuminate attendees on what to expect from the Ontario Soccer Summit on March 2-4 at Seneca College – Newnham Campus.
