Vergara will be inducted on November 9 in Vaughan, Ontario in the builder category to recognize the contributions he has made to the game of soccer throughout Canada.
“This year we will be honouring six extraordinary Canadians, two soccer organizations and one team of distinction that have made an impact on the sport of soccer in our country,” the Hall of Fame committee said in a release.
