    You won't see soccer in Ontario for a VERY long time. Some clubs may fold.

      Agreed. Health restrictions observed and aside; an unprecedented and even greater pool of "on-demand/Gig economy" [sports] soccer enthusiasts is out there seeking flexible formats that meets their needs, social media use, technologies & rapid mobility. "Sanctioned" clubs that adjust to that reality and take the o-p-p-o-r-t-u-n-i-t-y that is in front of them can sustenance during these scanty times and be setup to reap the benefits later. Yes, that means challenging the "Command Economy" Soccer authorities.

    The big three should be safe, but I am not sure about the others.

    Futuro should be safe as well actually. Imagine being a Gloucester, Nepean, Ottawa City and Internationals right now?

    What's going on with Internationals? I noticed that they haven't entered any teams in the ERSL (neither in regional, nor in the district divisions). Team registration deadline was yesterday.

      Definitely looks like they're having problems. On another note, did LACA end up folding? It looks like Rockers took over all their OCSL spots and gave them a couple of teams to play under Rockers.

      It looks like they've entered a handful of teams in the OCSL, but nothing in ERSL. Doesn't sound good for them. Wonder if they over-extended themselves with their turf fields and were done in by a decline in registrations.

    OSU seems to have scrapped all of their adult teams, with the exception of one women's rec team. Seems odd.

    And who is Mundial FC and how can they just be given a spot in MC2 ahead of other existing clubs?

    Mundial is leftovers from the Barcelona FC fiasco.

      But how would they get a spot in MC2? BCN Sports didn't have any adult teams.

    OSU were never really a big adult club. Money comes from the Kids.

      Definitely less profit in adult soccer, but they had their usual adult teams registered up until a couple of days ago, then were removed from the OCSL division configurations.

      The U13 and U14 OPDL division are running a pilot season this year where they play against National licence holders from the Quebec province. It would be a big upgrade to that league.

    Internationals will play in the fall session. Does anybody know if FUTURO will be playing their teams up a year? Seems like a waste of time to play their own age. You'll notice other clubs play up a year often. OSU black at U 12 often do this.

      Futuro tend to play individual players up (and/or train up), but generally not entire teams until they get to the older age groups. It would be pretty rare that every kid on a team should be playing up, with the issue typically being physical. The ERSL games themselves are treated more as training sessions, as they tend to play alot of competitive games outside of the league.

      Risky move by Internationals - I would expect some kids will have moved elsewhere at least for the first part of the season, in which case there is a risk they don't return. Hard to believe that they weren't able to get organized like other clubs.

    It could be that I've forgotten what it was like prior to the pandemic, but anyone else see some pretty pathetic scenes from parents at the younger age groups over the weekend?

    It seemed worse that in the past to me as well. I think alot of kids hadn't done very much until recently, so I've seen more lopsided games than typical. You see it in the scores at the older age groups, but it's the younger age groups where parents seem to go overboard - they don't take it well when their kids are on the wrong end of those games.
