OTTAWA, June 15, 2013 /CNW/ - On June 15, 2013, the Quebec Soccer
Federation (QSF) lifted its head cover ban on the province's soccer
fields. This followed a request from the Canadian Soccer Association
(CSA) to implement the decision of FIFA—the international governing
body for the sport of soccer—to authorize the wearing of male head
covers in all areas and at all levels of the Canadian soccer community.
I am pleased all parties involved have come to an understanding and have
resolved this issue quickly, so young Canadians in communities across
our country can take part in this great game.
