Statement by the Honourable Bal Gosal, Minister of State (Sport), on FIFA's Statement on Head Covers

OTTAWA, June 14, 2013 /CNW/ - On June 13, 2013, FIFA-the international governing body for the sport of soccer-sent a letter to the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) authorizing it to permit players to wear head covers, in all areas and at all levels of the Canadian soccer community.

As Minister of State for Sport, I am pleased to see there is an open dialogue on this issue.

I am optimistic this development will help the CSA and the Quebec Soccer Federation pursue their discussions and resolve the current situation very soon, so all Canadians, especially the children can get back on the field continue to play the game.

Please consult the FIFA statement for more information on head covers.
