In numerous occasions we have been asked about the meaning of our team logo and the answer is the same: WE ARE THE CANADIAN SOCCER TEAM paying our tribute to our new home – Canada (red and white colors). As a soccer team based in Toronto we pay our tribute to the city we live in (blue and white colors).
We also pay our tribute to the native city of one of our founders – City of Vorkuta to always remember the history and bravery of people who live there.
