uCalgary cuts funding for women's field hockey, men's soccer

April 16, 2009

The University of Calgary announced Wednesday that it has eliminated funding for its women's field hockey and men's soccer teams. The 2 programs have historically been the least successful teams on and off field, and the school plans to shift resources to core sports, such as hockey and basketball. A final decision on the future of the programs will be made prior to the Canada West annual general meeting early next month. If an alternative funding model cannot be found, both teams will not be entered into the next season. uCalgary Dinos News | Calgary Herald
