Almost time for summer league:
Football Canada Announces 2023 Eastern Challenge Schedule
Football Canada Announces U16 Male Tackle Schedule
Hamilton, Ontario – Football Canada has officially announced the 2023 schedules for this year’s Eastern Challenge, the country’s tackle football showcase for athletes under the age of 16.
The 2023 East Challenge will be held July 3-8, returning to Alumni Field in Sackville, NB, with games on July 5th and 8th. Team Ontario will look to battle back from a tough loss to Quebec in last year’s final.
The U16 Eastern Challenges is part of a packed summer for tackle football events, alongside the Football Canada Cup (FCC) and the U18 Women’s National Championship, all set to be held across the country in July and offering athletes of all ages the opportunity to exhibit their athletic abilities, football skills, and team spirit on the national stage.

Saturday, July 8th

I'm hoping this can lead to good things. The more football available on streams, the better.
