After almost an entire year without team sports in Quebec, soccer, among several other outdoor sports, is slated to return this summer, and Soccer Estrie aims to get the ball rolling at the end of June.
The Eastern Townships organization plans to start its regular season June 26 and 27. However, according to Soccer Estrie Director General André Cabana, the region needs to wait for the colour to change from orange to yellow.
“The season will be similar to a normal season in terms of the quantity of matches, but we’re just going to condense them a little bit in the summer and then extend a bit into September to offer a more complete season,” said Cabana.
Soccer Estrie governs nine clubs in the region, including the Mistral de Sherbrooke, Memphré de Magog, Dribbleurs du Haut-St-François, and L’Éclipse de Coaticook-Compton. Cabana and his team poured hours into creating a suitable schedule for each club.
