Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ontario Soccer sanctioned activities have been cancelled or postponed until at least June 30, 2020. These activities include, but are not limited to, all competitions, training, coach and match official education and team building activities.
As communicated in March, Ontario Soccer had extended the annual deadline for Match Official registration to April 30th (from March 31st) with all registration late fees waived for the 2020 season. Ontario Soccer is encouraging all Match Officials to register now, so that Districts, Clubs and Academies can be fully prepared to kick off the Return to Play season when announced.
Based on the official start date of the 2020 season, there will be a weekly pro-rated reduction in registration fees. This pro-rating will begin July 6, 2020.
Ontario Soccer and the District Associations are still going to be providing programming to support the development of Match Officials once the season kicks off, therefore, the LTOD fee and District Development Fees will still be collected as a part of registration, but will also be pro-rated.
If you registered prior to the pro-rated fees coming into place, Ontario Soccer will be reaching out to you directly and individually in regards to refunding the difference between the fees based on the season start date.
Registration remains open, and Match Officials, Assignors and Assessors can register at any time. In the coming days, Ontario Soccer will be sharing a Match Official specific FAQ and further Match Officiating communication.

We will keep you posted as new updates become available.
