The Sudbury Spartans have announced the addition of a varsity team for the 2020 season, alongside their junior varsity and men’s squads.

“We are excited to have our Spartan family grow,” said Gord Goddard, Sudbury Spartans president, in a team release. “The addition of the Spartans varsity team fills a void in provincial level football in Sudbury. This team will allow Grade 11 and 12 students in Sudbury to play football at a higher level during the summer months.”

The JV team was successful during its inaugural season in the Ontario Provincial Football League last summer, posting an overall record of 7-3 and advancing all the way to semifinals.

The new senior varsity team will also play in the OPFL, while the senior Spartans will continue as one of the longest-running entries in the semi-pro Northern Football Conference.

All three teams will kick off their seasons at James Jerome Sports Complex in late May.

Registration for all teams is now open online. For more information and to register, visit www.sudburyspartans.com.
