AGAIN, FOR THOSE INTERESTED ... IN PLAYING IN MEXICO.
FOR THOSE INTERESTED ... FOOTBALL IN MEXICO.
MIFA (another football league) has been working on International programs for the past three years. MIFA has traveled once a year to Mexico for the Mexican International Bowl. Each year it has grown with an additional team. This coming May 2019, with the International Bowl in Cancun, it is adding a new facet of football to its tour.
MIFA is reaching out to local leagues and programs with the intention of creating a team for the upcoming games. MIFA hopes that players from MTFL can help create a team that would prarticipate in the 2019 International Tour (touch football).
Participating players will benefit from but also be expected to pay for an all-inclusive 7-day vacation at a cost of $1500-1600. In addition, each player must also commit to raise $200 through a fundraiser. Players not able to stay the duration of the full day 7 day all-inclusive vacation will be able to be booked for a shorter package; however, will still have to raise $200 in fundraising for the Tour.
If you have interest in participating in this venture with MIFA and representing Canada internationally, please contact MIFA no later than Friday July 6th as they want to release a promo as soon as possible. Below is a link to show you what MIFA does in Mississauga annually.

THANK-YOU FOR ATTENDING THE YEAR-END PARTY.
From your executive team,
A heart-felt thank-you to all who attended last night's year-end party.
Very much appreciated to see you and speak with you and very much excited to learn so many of you are already planning for the 2019 season.
Kudos also go out to our referees and key partners (, City of Mississauga, ChopShop) as well as the large number of fans who attended regular season and/or play-off games.
Our mission remains safe, competitive and fun games. Our objective is to grow the league and we are very much interested in hearing your suggestions on how to better market this league to the next new team, QB or referee.
Finally, enjoy the MTFL off season and may you continue to bring good will, peace and touch football every where you go.
Your 2018 Executive Team
PS ... hi-res photos of the divisional championship games as well as last night's festivities will be posted to the league's FACEBOOK account before the end of this month.
MTFL YEAR-END CELEBRATION
The 2018 MTFL's season has concluded and it is time to celebrate!
All players, game officials, team organizers and supporters are invited to attend.
Date: Wed., Sep. 12th
Time: 7 pm start; 8 pm presentations; 10 pm wind-down
Location: International Sports Bar - 2480 Cawthra Rd
Free appetizers will be provided.
Come celebrate with your game officials, team-mates, friendly opponents, league executive, etc.
FURTHER PLAY-OFF RESULTS AND UPDATES FROM YOUR EXECUTIVE.
The MTFL 2018 season has completed. The A and B division champions are the HOUNDS and ANGELS respectfully.
Next, all championship game teams were, in fact, awarded a team cheque plus gift bag for each player. All championship game teams should cash/deposit that cheque immediately. Specifically, the executive wishes to proceed with its season ending activities (which include a summary of all expenses and initial planning for next year's budgetary needs).
Speaking of planning, if you would like to be part of that effort or any other Executive duty, please contact any member of the existing Executive team (or send email to the league) asap. Of particular need are divisional reps for our upper most divisions.
Next, may all players, teams, referees and fans have a wonderful off season (from the MTFL) and may each of their ventures into other football leagues/seasons be continued to be filled with safe, competitive and fun games.
Next, more announcements about the MTFL 2018 YEAR END party will be issued this weekend; the party is Wednesday 12-Sep (... as most teams had preferred to play their games on a Wednesday night).
Next, your current executive team is considering the planning and execution of some marketing events to grow out league from within and without. Possibilities include "a captains table" dinner meeting and "at major Mississauga employer locations presentations". Again, if you have interest or wish for the MTFL to come to your employer's (lunch-room, gathering space) give us a shout right away. Building a strong and diverse league is in everyone's interest and benefit... so if you can help recruit the next team into this league let's talk!
Finally, a big thank-you to all of our partners and league supporters as we would not have league without you. A special shout out to our league affiliation head ... TOUCH FOOTBALL ONTARIO ... and best wishes to all there for upcoming PROVINCIAL and NATIONAL tournaments.
