About Downtown Soccer Toronto
Downtown Soccer Toronto (DST) is Toronto's first official LGBTQA+ recreational soccer league. We aim to provide an athletic and
socially safe atmosphere for everyone to enjoy playing soccer.
We play Sundays at Withrow Park, a block south of the Danforth between Logan and Carlaw. Check out the video below for what we're all about!
DST acknowledges the traditional keepers of the land on which we gather and play: the Mississaugas of the New Credit, Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Cree, and any other Nations who cared for this land (acknowledged and unacknowledged, recorded and unrecorded).
The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. This territory is also covered by the Upper Canada Treaties.
Today, the meeting place of Toronto (from the Haudenosaunee word Tkaronto) is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to gather together and play on this territory.
