Breagha Carr-Harris Appointed Head of Canada Women’s pro soccer
Canada Soccer has appointed former MLSE executive Breagha Carr-Harris to its new post of head of women’s professional soccer.
President of Canada Soccer Nick Bontis has made bringing women’s pro soccer to Canada a priority since being elected president of the Canadian soccer governing body in November 2020.
“It’s something that has been missing … glaringly missing,” he said in late February when the posting closed.
“Now more than ever the women’s professional game deserves to have its rightful place in this country. We are very excited to welcome Breagha Carr-Harris to this newly created role which is critical to the advancement of the women’s professional game in our country,” Bontis said in a statement Saturday.
Carr-Harris spent the last 14-plus years with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, most recently as manager of fan service.
