The state of women’s professional sports in Canada is in dire need of your support!
We have made it our sole mission to bring attention to a cause that we believe affects the lives of women across Canada. The NWSL (National Women’s Soccer League) is the highest level of professional women’s soccer in North America. We lack a presence on this platform, and it is time, as a country we turn this around. Canada is the only country ranked in the Top 20 of the FIFA women’s ranking without a league of its own. This needs to change, and we need your help to make it happen!
We are intent on shining light to the women’s soccer culture here in Toronto and Canada as a whole, and to show the world that there is a passionate and thriving soccer community in Canada made up of both men and WOMEN! The time is here for females to be respected and acknowledged as professionals in their home country. Canadian women athletes lack representation and we are here to lend our voices to change. The success of our Canadian Women’s National Team should speak volumes on why we deserve a women’s soccer league, or a professional team in our major cities at the least!
Toronto is the most diverse city in the world and the 4th largest city in North America. Out of the top 8 sport leagues in North America (NBA, NFL, MLB, MLS, NHL, WNBA, NWSL and NWHL) Toronto is represented by only one team in all three women’s leagues, this is a harrowing fact that does not represent our values as a city. Toronto stands for equality, we stand for inclusiveness and Toronto believes in and supports women’s rights! We are home to countless girls that dedicate their time and sacrifice their entire life to training and playing the sports they love. These girls deserve a chance to develop into women who do what they love on a professional level right here in Canada. With over 300,000 registered female players across the country Canadian women are currently forced to leave the country to pursue their professional soccer careers.
Toronto is a sports town! Remember when we gathered outside our home stadium for the Leafs and Raptors during their playoff run? What about when we lined the streets by the millions for our NBA Championship parade? And who could forget standing outside in the bitter cold with fingers and toes numb while screaming and cheering in support of the TFC in the MLS Cup finals! We loved every minute of it! Every joy, heartbreak, win or lose, we love it, because sports is in Toronto’s DNA. Canadian women athletes deserve this experience and we ask potential investors to seriously consider the possibilities for this groundbreaking shift in Canadian sports.
We aim to make Canadian history here with this evolutionary campaign, not only for women’s soccer in Canada but for women’s sports in Canada. We thank you for supporting us and hope that you join this movement, your help and support can be a means of breaking barriers in Toronto and Canada, and we truly appreciate it! This is not one person’s campaign, this is a movement to change the future for your daughters, your nieces, your sisters, your cousins, for your neighbors, your community, your city and of course your country!
Thank you to all the Canadian women currently playing professionally around the globe that have supported this campaign! You are all true trailblazers and our future professional female players are lucky to have such awesome role models! Keep up the good fight!
To ALL that are in support of this movement, please take the time to share this petition on each and every one of your social media platforms, let’s make it impossible for them to ignore us!
