As part of the celebrations surrounding the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Fédération de soccer du Québec (FSQ), on August 12, 2011 its President Dino Madonis, and the President of the Association régionale de soccer de l'Outaouais (ARSO), Benoît St-Georges, awarded Ville de Gatineau a centennial medal in the Bâtisseur ville category.

Ville de Gatineau is ARSO's main partner. It saw and understood the full potential of soccer, a sport for the masses, putting infrastructures and 120 fields at the disposal of the players. It contributed to the multisport centre in the La Fonderie building, with its two synthetic grass surfaces, and to the installation of a synthetic surface in the Mont-Bleu sports complex, and another at the Université du Québec en Outaouais.

Quebec has more than 200,000 soccer players, 300 soccer clubs and associations, 25,000 trainers, 7,000 umpires and 50,000 volunteers.
