OTTAWA – Canada is returning to the world senior men’s tackle football championship.

The Canadian men’s national team will compete in the 2025 International Federation of American Football event, the bulk of which will be held in Germany. Canada last participated in the event in 2011, downing Austria to earn a silver medal.

“The founding nation of football, Canada, has been absent from the world men’s championship for far too long,” said Football Canada president Jim Mullin. “Our return is a proud moment that aligns with our strategic plan’s objectives and reinforces our presence in international football.”

The Canadian team kicks off its return facing Mexico in a qualification game in January 2025. The winner will carry the banner for North America in the championship.

Football Canada will provide planning, uniforms and equipment for the squad however, it will be self-funded. The TC International Football Team Society, with Daniel Woloshin serving as president, will back the national senior team.
