Our History

Justice League Football was registered as a business by Amin Kardan on Aug. 28th, 2008 as a sole-proprietorship. He always had a passion for soccer but never got involved in playing on a regular basis until a friend invited him to play a pickup outdoor game in the summer of 2008. After playing a long summer of pickup games he fell in love with the sport and wanted to continue playing through the winter, but quickly found out that playing soccer was not cheap! So, one day he had an idea to start his own soccer league to bring affordable soccer to not only his friends but to the community as well. And thus, Justice League Football was born!

JLSoccer successfully ran its first 10-game indoor tournament in Jan 2009 at the Toronto SoccerPlex. After the tournament ended, a weekly indoor pickup game was started so that JLSoccer could use it as a portal to recruit players for its first outdoor season! The popularity of the indoor & outdoor pickup & leagues has grown immensely with a variety of players and talent participating.

The response has been great as JLSoccer continues to find new ways of getting its name known. JLSoccer has worked its way up into the top 10 searches on Google for results like 'toronto indoor soccer'. JLSoccer is slowly making its mark as an independent soccer league, and no matter how small or big things get, JLSoccer will continue to provide the best quality soccer and service.

Our Name

The name Justice League started out as a joke between two friends while playing ping pong during College. Sometimes there would be a discrepancy as to whether or not the ball was in or out. They used the next match point to determine if that was really the case. Ultimately, they let the ball decide. If the ball turned out to be the opposite of what was claimed, they would say 'JUSTICE!'. They let the forces of nature take charge in the deciding factor.

For comic fans out there, the name is also based on the famous Justice League comics which can be found among the comic book collection of our founder.

The word 'Football' was used because soccer is known worldwide as football, and to stay true to the game even if it may cause some confusion! We are not to be mistaken for American Football!

"Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players using a spherical ball. Association football is the most popular football variant worldwide, and is widely considered to be the most popular sport in the world." ref
