Breast Cancer Awareness

Get the Pink Out!!!

Hello MWSL players, coaches, team managers, fans:

It’s that time once again;  Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October

As most of you are aware The Metro Women’s Soccer League is one of the largest female soccer organizations in the country. We strongly feel the importance to unite as women to help and look out for our fellow sisters.  Most of us have been affected or touched by someone with Breast Cancer and this is an opportunity to join together in honouring our loved ones and making a real difference. 

We invite all teams/members to get the PINK OUT for all affected and to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

The MWSL will support and encourage any team who would like to show their support throughout October by wearing Pink jerseys, Pink accessories during your games. The league will ease up on rules regarding under garment and colouring of accessories providing that no safety issues are created, teams are mindful that jerseys must be numbered and colours are distinguishable between teams.  

Please visit or check out the Soccer Express website for some new Pink Products along with the attached flyer.

We urge teams to use the following:  Pink game balls, Pink warm up/sideline pinnies, Pink banners, wearing Pink accessories such as Pink sweat, hair and arm bands, Pink pro wrap, Pink boots and/or shoelaces, Pink gloves and tape. Find a way find to display it on the field or sideline.

If there are any questions or confusion about uniforms, league rules will apply unless the teams agree otherwise on game day.   The Centre Official on the day will will make final decisions if no agreement is reached between teams and we ask that you all respect their decision.

New this year on the MWSL Website is the “Donation Now” button on the front page of the website.  This is to provide direct access to players wanting to donate in a fast and easy way.  100% of the donations will be received by the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.


The MWSL will contribute 5 (five) $50 prizes towards your efforts to raise money for Breast Cancer research.  For a chance to win, send in your best PINK” post-game photo.  Including game officials in Pink and your fans donned in Pink in photos will enhance your chance for a prize. We will also have a pair of tickets to the Whitecaps game on October 28th for the team with the best pink picture

Also, please share your photos so we can add them to our Facebook and Instagram page.

Let’s come together, honour and embrace the colour Pink and all it stands for.

Yours in PINK,
