Important ID Card Information
May 11, 2018

ALL ID Card Requests Must be Made Online: https://www.eodsa.ca/PlayerCard_Create.aspx

*PLEASE READ BELOW BEFORE APPLYING FOR AN ID CARD*

Cropping your Photo

You will be prompted to upload a photo during the application process. On some devices, the photo will appear very zoomed in after you upload it and the cropping feature will not work. Please submit the application with the photo as it appears, even if it appears zoomed in. We will receive the full photo and crop it accordingly. Please do not try to resize your photo to make it fit in the box. 

Registration Number

There is a field to write your Ontario Soccer Registration Number. This field is not mandatory. If you do not know your registration number, leave this field blank. We will pull this information from Ontario Soccer's AIMS database and fill it in ourselves. If you do fill in this field, you may receive the error message "The registration number 123456 already exists in the database", if you already have a card in our system. If this occurs, please submit the application, leaving the registration number field blank, and we will input the number on our end. 

Are you registered in Ontario Soccer's AIMS database?

You must be registered in Ontario Soccer's AIMS database for the current season in order to apply for an ID card. You will first have to register with your club, who will then go and register you with Ontario Soccer. Until your club has registered you with Ontario Soccer, you are not eligible to apply for an ID card. Any questions related to registration should be directed to your club as the EODSA is not involved in the registration of individual players. 

Getting your ID Card

You will be prompted to select whether you would like to pick your card up at the EODSA office during our office hours, or if you would like the card mailed to you. Note: Any cards ordered on or after May 14, 2018 must be picked up at the EODSA office. The mail option will be disabled on this date as the beginning of the season is too close and we can't guarantee the card will arrive in time.

Mailed cards can take anywhere from 3-7 business days to arrive once printed. If you select the Pick Up option, the card will be available to be picked up our next open day. You will receive an email when the card is ready or if your application was rejected.  Please check your junk box as it may end up there.

Did your ID card application get rejected?

There are a few common reasons that your ID card application may get rejected. If it does get rejected, you will receive an email letting you know. This email will include the reason it got rejected and a link for you to follow to resubmit the application. Please see below for common reasons an ID card application will get rejected and how you can fix the issue:

 

There are also a number of photo errors that may cause your application to be rejected. To ensure your photo is able to be processed, make sure it meets the following requirements:

  • It is an actual photo and not a photo of a photo
  • The photo is not blurry or so small that it will become blurry when it is cropped to only include the head
  • Your eyes are open and visible, and you are looking at the camera
  • The photo is a clear head shot and is not taken from too far away
  • There is no glare or watermark on your face and it was taken in proper lighting conditions (not too light, not too dark)
  • It is a recent, up to date photo
  • The background is solid or not busy (there should not be any other people visible in the background)
  • You are alone in the photo
  • You are not wearing a hat or sunglasses
  • The image is centered and not taken on an angle
