Exciting News from WYSA!


The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) is proud to announce a new multi-year partnership with Boston Pizza! As part of the partnership, one of Western Canada’s biggest summer soccer tournaments will have a new name - Boston Pizza Players Tournament which will raise funds for WYSA’s new player subsidy fund. This summer marks the first annual Boston Pizza Players Tournament which it is hoped that we will raise $10,000 for a new player subsidy fund to help those families who may miss out on playing simply because their families can’t afford to pay the fees. In addition to the tournament, Boston Pizza will also support several other WYSA programs.

"Boston Pizza has long been a place for soccer teams, families, and fans to get together and enjoy meals", said Andrew Shefchyk, Director of Marketing for Boston Pizza. "We are very proud to support the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association and this tournament that will enable more children and youth to play and enjoy the beautiful game!"

“Boston Pizza is a great fit for the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association and positive step forward in strengthening our community partnerships,” said Carlo Bruneau, Executive Director of WYSA. “Boston Pizza has a very strong track record of community involvement and we’re extremely pleased to have their brand associated with youth soccer here in Winnipeg.”

The Boston Pizza Players Tournament runs June 3rd – 7th, 2015 at John Blumberg Sportsplex and Grant Park Fields. The tournament has attracted 155 total teams, including teams from Ontario and South Dakota. The finals will be held on Sunday, June 7th at John Blumberg Sportsplex.

The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association manages the largest youth soccer league in Manitoba. In addition to managing all premier and developmental leagues from ages 9 through 18, WYSA oversees recreational soccer leagues for community centres from ages 13 to 18. It also supports district soccer associations who administer the recreational leagues for ages 9 through 12 during the outdoor season. In recent years, WYSA has managed indoor high school soccer and has played a key role in bringing soccer programming to disadvantaged youth in Winnipeg’s core areas through its Mobile Mini Soccer Program.
