The Ontario Indoor Cup is a young Club competition in comparison to the outdoor cup which was first played in 1901. The Indoor Cup began in 1987. Over the years it has moved from boarded facilities to the former Skydome and then to soccer specific no board venues.
The popularity of the indoor game has resulted in a demand for the Ontario Indoor Cup in most age divisions. The level of participation has taken the competition from a centrally staged Round-Robin format, to regional play-downs across the province, culminating with the Final Round hosted at The Soccer Centre in Vaughan.
The event's application process kicks-off in November with the Finals staggered throughout January and February.
