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
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.
