Inspiresport signs a multi-year deal with Ontario Soccer Summit

Inspiresport are delighted to have a presence at this years’ Ontario Soccer Summit 2018 on the back of signing a multi-year agreement as the official soccer tour operator of this Ontario Soccer flagship educational event.

“We are incredibly excited to be opening our best-in-class product offering to the Ontario market and look forward to developing the proposition alongside Ontario Soccer over the coming years,” said Steve Butchart, CEO of inspiresport. “Having lived in the province for over 5 years prior to joining inspiresport, I am very much aware of both the level of participation in the sport and the interest in the major leagues within Europe – our model uniquely captures both.”

Inspiresport offers the opportunity to train at the first team and academy facilities for all scheduled training sessions with club coaching staff.

“Ontario Soccer’s goal is to foster play, inspire and unite with our soccer community and few things are more inspiring for a young soccer player than being immersed in a soccer environment they may, otherwise, only know from the media,” said Bjorn Osieck, Director of Business Operations for Ontario Soccer. “We are pleased to collaborate with inspiresport as industry-leading soccer tour operators to bring their sought-after soccer experiences for female and male players to our membership and anticipate growing interest by our stakeholders to take advantage of these outstanding opportunities.”

The development programs at each club are tailor-made to suit all requirements with the ultimate aim of developing tactical knowledge and building skill sets, in a professional club environment for that fully immersive experience.
