Canada Soccer has published all six competition schedules for the 2019 Toyota National Championships via the official website, canadasoccer.com/nationals.
“The Toyota National Championships are Canada Soccer’s largest amateur competition, extending from coast to coast to coast each year with more than 600 competing clubs and 10,000 players,” said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer General Secretary. “The Toyota National Championships provide an impactful experience for our sport and our host communities, helping to build an important legacy for sport in Canada.”
The Toyota National Championships are Canada’s premier amateur soccer competitions. This year marks the 97th edition of the men’s competition and 38th edition of the senior women’s competition. While the competition has sometimes featured professional or semi-professional teams, since the early 1960s the National Championships have strictly featured amateur teams.
