The 2021 Fall Cup games will take place between the top teams in the Ontario Fall Football League (OFFL) and the top teams in the National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) to determine the top programs in the province.
All Fall Cup games will take place on November 20th and 21st at Esther Shiner Stadium located at 5720 Bathurst Street, North York, ON, M2R 3W2. The spectator capacity for each game will be capped at 350. Tickets will go on sale soon and will be limited.
"NCAFA is looking forward to this fall provincial championship series, bringing all regions together in competition to see who has the best teams in the province. It's going to be great seeing old friends and making new ones" says Gawain Harding, the President of NCAFA.
The 2021 Fall Cup will bring in the winning teams from both the OFFL and NCAFA to compete in a single championship game at the U18+, U16, and U14 level with the winner being declared the provincial champion.

“The Inaugural Football Ontario Fall Cup will be the ultimate culmination of an unbelievable season of amatuer football in the province. We cannot wait to host the OFFL and NCAFA to crown a provincial championship and most importantly celebrate all of the hard work by our athletes, coaches and volunteers. This will be the beginning of a new tradition in Ontario which will allow us to put our sport at center stage for all to see.” says Aaron Geisler, Executive Director, Football Ontario.

"The Ontario Fall Football League is incredibly excited for its inaugural playoff season. This season - our first season back since the pandemic began, has afforded all of football's volunteers an opportunity to come together to get our kids back on the field, in a context none of us were ready for, under a unified umbrella we worked years to achieve. What an achievement for all volunteers, centres, coaches, boards, players and parents -- to be entering our first playoff season despite our context. The opportunity to have our champions play the NCAFA champions for the inaugural Fall Football Cup is just the cherry on top - a true testament to the power of collaboration, and putting the players and our sport first. We can't wait!" says Jodine Tavares, President of the OFFL.
