What we're about
Toronto Soccer Meetup
Established Jan 2011, this Meetup group is a place for soccer game postings across Toronto & the GTA. We roughly have 12000 members, with 1500 active members every year.
Games are posted and organized by separate individuals. Some are free games, some are paid. If you'd like to post games, please message Kal.
SKILL LEVEL: A wide variety of skill levels from beginner to expert, although most games tend to have a higher-than-beginner skill level. Absolute beginner's should explore games that have a smaller amount of players, as the larger games may be too intense for you.
LOCATIONS: Locations are always a mix of outdoor/indoor, public/private, free/paid. There are no geographic limitations in this group, but naturally everything follows a Toronto/GTA theme. Game postings tend to be made with geographic info in the front of the title (like a neighborhood name).
WHAT TO BRING: If attending any game as a player, please bring water, 2 t-shirts (light & dark) and proper shoes for the surface conditions. If you have a ball, bring it! Oh and don't forget some cash for beer after games =).
GENERAL GAME RULES:
Of course, rule #1: BE SAFE and RESPECTFUL
