Angelo Magliocco was born in Lago, Cosenza Italy in 1939. Angelo and his family immigrated to Canada in 1958 to the city of Ottawa. Angelo played in Ottawa as a young man, just as he had done before in his native land. He could not continue playing soccer after 3 leg operations, so he decided to take up refereeing.
Angelo and his family moved to Hamilton in 1966 where he became a member of the Eastern Canadian Soccer Referee Association (Hamilton Chapter) and was Vice-President from 1976-1979. Angelo was then named President from 1980-1984 and served on many Committees with the OSRA.
Angelo was nominated National Referee in 1981 and then achieved his National Badge the following year. Angelo’s refereeing included the 1975 and 1981 Canada Summer Games. After retiring from refereeing in 1988, he continued spending time in referee development, provincial assessment and local instruction. The OSRA made Angelo a Life Member in 1986 and joined the ranks of Alex Weir and Bill Wilson.
Angelo also served as Vice-President of the Hamilton and District Soccer Association, Referee Coordinator, and President of the Hamilton Senior Soccer League and the Oldtimer’s League. He is also a Life Member of both the Hamilton and District Soccer Association and Oldtimer’s League. In 1996 Angelo became the National Assessor by the Canadian Soccer Association.
