Hamilton, Ontario - Football Ontario is excited to announce the inaugural 2021 Football Ontario Fall Cup to crown a fall provincial champion.
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.
In the U12 and U10 age categories the top two teams from both the OFFL and NCAFA will participate in a jamboree style day. U12 will be played at 9-a-side and U10 will be played at 6-a-side.
“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 U14, U16, and U18+ championship games will be held on November 20th with the U10 (6-a-side) and U12 (9-a-side) games being held on November 21st. See the full schedule below:

"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.

The Nepean Eagles Football Club Receives Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund Grant
In February, Canadian Tire Corporation announced an additional $12 million commitment to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund to help sport and recreation organizations build back sport and play in Canada. Jumpstart conducted a State of Sport study via Ipsos which revealed the pandemic has not only impacted current access to sport and play but has real long-term effects as well. The Eagles and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.
We are pleased to announce that the Eagles recently received confirmation that we will be provided with grant support through the last round of Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. In 2021, Jumpstart has now disbursed funding to more than 1,200 organizations across Canada through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know the positive impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country.
With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to augment staffing to support programming as well as a review of policies and procedures aimed at enabling kids to be properly equipped in order to play safely at our fields.
Please let me know if you have any questions and/or if you are interested in joining our team.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Nepean Eagles Football Club
