Please note that all City of London Soccer Fields and Baseball diamonds are closed tonight based on the rain that we have received over the past 24 hours. City Wide’s artificial turf soccer fields will remain open.
Player safety is our main concern and at this point the fields and diamonds are simply too wet to be played on. Attached is a picture of a soccer field that was played on after a heavy rainfall. As a result of playing on this field the field was closed down for the season as it was deemed unsafe.
For any of you on twitter you can also follow me at @MikeVandertuin where I will be posting closures as soon as they happen.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Still riding the high of playing in the final, as captain, for the Canadian Women’s U17 squad at the CONCACAF Championships, Jessie Fleming was hit with another unbelievable opportunity. She was invited to train with the Senior Canadian Women’s National Team and has now been added to the roster for the upcoming Four Nations Cup. Playing on the national team alongside veteran greats like Christine Sinclair, Diana Matheson, and Erin McLeod is a dream come true for the young 15 year old athlete from Nor’West London.
Words cannot express how proud we are for Jessie as she represents Canada, Ontario, London, and Nor’West. We wish her good luck as her journey continues.
