Canadian Soccer News has learned that the Ontario Soccer Association has decided to 'provisionally approve' a new division 3 league for Ontario.
The league, a pursuit originally put forth by the Durham and Peel Halton regions, with the support of Hamilton Croatia and Milltown FC - two teams seeking to create a breakaway league from the Canadian Soccer League - will have until November to meet the 8 team minimum standard and to educate the clubs on the provisions set forth by the OSA.
The league, yet unnamed, is being designed to build with established community clubs who are seeking a natural extension to their youth setup.
The OSA, which approved the decision at last week's board of directors meeting, is expected to make an official announcement in the days ahead. Canadian Soccer News will have more details on the league as they emerge.
