Canada’s Mens Soccer Team just participated in the FIFA Men’s World Cup and Canada Soccer probably made a crazy amount of money from the tournament (Not just the $10 million for qualifying, trust me sponsors paid up).
Canada’s Women Soccer Team is the reigning Olympic gold medallists. Canada’s Women’s Soccer Team is ranked #6 in the world. Canada will be participating and trying to win the Women’s World Cup this summer.

At a loss for words for how Canada Soccer continues to conduct themselves and how they continue to get away with it. Six months away from the biggest stage and we are essentially being told that the federation is broke. We are Olympic Gold medalists, ranked #6 in the world, we
