Brams United continues to make the health and safety of our participants and members our first priority. We are excited to be heading towards our Indoor. Ahead of our Indoor season, we kindly ask that you review the updates below from City of Brampton and Ontario Soccer:


On Sept. 14, 2021, the Government of Ontario further clarified the details of its Proof of Vaccine Requirements and laid out the exemptions for indoor facilities. They also released the official regulations.

Ontario Soccer communicated these updates on Sept. 14, 2021, in bulletin I2021-075.

Ontario Soccer has now reviewed the new regulations with the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries to confirm interpretation for sport and updated its Return to Play Guide in accordance with the provincial regulations.

In addition to the updates to the Return to Play Guide, today the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries has clarified the following:
