Toronto, ON (January 28, 2021) - League1 Ontario is pleased to welcome four new clubs to its Men’s Premier Division for the 2021 season and the eighth campaign (the seventh season was cancelled due to COVID-19) of the provincial Division III league – continuing the evolution to expand the player pathway for talented and committed young athletes, providing high-performance training and the top level of competition to post-OPDL and post-secondary school players.
“We are delighted to see further growth in the League1 Ontario Mens Premier Division,” said League1 Ontario Director, Dino Rossi. “The level of interest to join the league was unprecedented. We had a lot of quality applicants to choose from. We are very confident that the clubs we are announcing today will be outstanding additions.”
The League welcomes the following clubs: Guelph United (Guelph), Scrosoppi FC (Milton), St. Catharines Roma Wolves (St. Catharines) and Waterloo United (Waterloo).
“These four new entries significantly increase the league’s presence in the southwestern end of the province. It was a priority to bring League1 Ontario to new communities and we are very pleased to have achieved that objective,” continued Dino Rossi. “We are very excited for talented young footballers in these regions to have the ability to aspire to playing in League1 Ontario within their home communities and we are excited to see some new rivalries emerge.”
