The Ottawa St. Anthony Italia,,[1] is a top amateur soccer club based in Ottawa, Ontario. The club was founded in 1952 as the St. Anthony men's soccer team and played in a local league. In 1959, the team consolidated with another local team known as "Italia" to form Ottawa St. Anthony Italia. In 1965, the team joined the Quebec National Soccer League, where it won 5 championships. More recently, the men's competitive team won the Open Canada Cup and the Canadian National Challenge Cup to become champions in 2006.

The organization currently fields multiple teams in both recreational and competitive divisions of the Ottawa-Carleton Soccer League and ERSL, East Region Soccer League, including youth and adult men's and women's teams.[2]
