Bringing the Edmonton Soccer Community Together

YEG Soccer Project aspires to enhance the soccer experience in The City of Edmonton through community engagement and relentless Advocacy.

We believe Soccer is an integral part of our cultural, social landscape and an exceptional vehicle to promoting health and wellness in our community.

Why Soccer?

The World's Game

Soccer is “The Worlds Game”. It is accessible. It is Universal. It is The Beautiful Game.

Social Excellence

Soccer has tremendous and inherent social benefits. Whether it is health and wellness, gender equality, leadership skills, or community involvement – Soccer shines as an amazing resource for all ages.


Soccer transcends all languages, races, cultures, religions and ethnicities. It gives children of all backgrounds an escape, a place to belong, a place to build bridges and most importantly a place to find hope.

Our Vision is to engage with the grassroots soccer community but also the community at large to help create a fertile environment for soccer to grow through initiatives that tell the story of Soccer in YEG.

“In order to play at the highest level possible, facilities must be world-class. This challenge is more pronounced in a country whose climate and geography present both challenges and opportunities”

– Victor Montagliani
Former President of Canadian Soccer Association,
President of CONCACAF, Member of FIFA Council

"Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers"

– Nelson Mandela
