Play. Inspire. Unite. 

Ontario Soccer is proud to announce that the first keynote speaker for the Ontario Soccer Summit 2019 will be John Herdman, the Canadian Men's National team head coach as well as the national director for all male age groups.

Herdman began his Canadian career as the Women's National team head coach and led them to two consecutive Olympic bronze medals and is now looking to replicate the success on the men's side of the game. 

Herdman, who will be joined by two other keynote speakers, will be part of a weekend long event in London, Ont., March 1-3, 2019. 

The additional keynote speakers will be announced in the days ahead and tickets, along with the entire roster for the Ontario Soccer Summit 2019, will be available to the public on Nov. 1, 2018. 

The Nov. 1 announcement, which includes speakers from the Technical Development, Match Official Development and Administrative and Operations streams, will kick-off the first window of advantage pricing, which offers the best dollar value anywhere in soccer development.

The first window of ticket availability for this team-building event closes Dec. 1. 

With only 100 tickets available during this initial period, be sure to act quickly when tickets go on sale Nov. 1, as prices will increase incrementally after Dec. 1.
