The modern sport of soccer was founded in the mid 1900’s in England. In an effort to unite the various versions of soccer being played at the time the Football Association (The FA) was formed in London in 1863. The Football Association created the first set of 13 standardized rules in 1871 upon which the modern game is played. In Canada, the sport is governed by the Canadian Soccer Association, which was established in 1912. The Association has 13 province/territory members.

Men’s soccer made its first appearance at the 1969 Canada Summer Games in Halifax-Dartmouth. Women’s soccer was first included in the Canada Games program at the 1993 Canada Summer Games in Kamloops, BC.
