Soccer in Canada

Recent reports across various media outlets in Canada have confirmed that soccer is experiencing growth in participants across all ages, while hockey has started to decline!

This is surprising in a country that has always been so focused (read - fanatical) on hockey. We get behind our favourite teams with all of our vim and vigour and when it comes to supporting teams in International Competitions, we come together and unite behind our very successful Canadian hockey teams.

So why are more people playing soccer? There are obvious links between the cost of getting a child enrolled in hockey and the drop of participants. There are also links between the number of immigrants who come from countries that hold soccer in the highest regard.

Whatever the reason, Canadian's are now flocking to the local fields to take it all in! We as Canadian's are starting to embrace just how global this game is and perhaps... just maybe... we are buying into the hype!

Let's hope these promising trends can enable our National Teams to compete at the highest level.
