Canadian Soccer Association’s position on allowing turbans/patkas/keski
on the soccer field | 6 June 2013
The Canadian Soccer Association wishes to strongly reaffirm its position of allowing the wearing of turbans/patkas/keski by soccer players. The initial decision taken by the Canadian Soccer Association Board of Directors was communicated to all Provincial and Territorial members on 11 April 2013 and has since been successfully applied across Canada, with the exception of Quebec where the Quebec Soccer Federation recently voted to institute a ban on turbans. “As an unequivocal majority of our membership agrees with our approach and has safely instituted it within their respective soccer communities, we expect the Quebec Soccer Federation to do the same,” said Victor Montagliani, President of the Canadian Soccer Association. “The Canadian Soccer Association is committed to making soccer accessible to the largest number of Canadians and will continue to work towards resolving this important and sensitive issue in a timely fashion,” Montagliani added.
