Have you ever played soccer inside a 60,000 seat stadium, on world class turf?
Coastal FC is pleased to team up with Premium Brands to allow club players to experience a PLAYING LIKE A PRO experience, at BC Place. Selected Coastal FC players have the opportunity to play on the pitch home to the Vancouver Whitecaps, and host of many Canadian Men’s and Women’s National team games, including the FIFA Women’s World Cup Final!!!
“What a great way to kick off the 2017 Fall season.” said Chris Murphy, Coastal FC’s Executive Director. “We are so appreciative of the support we receive from Premium Brands and their generosity allowing so many Coastal FC players to have a one of a kind experience that they won’t soon forget.”
On Sunday September 10th, all U5 to U10 players are invited to participate in a fun filled jamboree-style event, inside BC Place Stadium. There will be no charge to participate. As space will be limited, registration for this tournament will be on an individual, first come first serve basis, with teams formed by our staff.
There will be some special guests joining us on this fun-filled day, the details of which will be released at a later date. Enter to win prizes including the opportunity to be a player escort or part of the high five line at our Club hosted Vancouver Whitecaps game against the Columbus Crew SC on September 16th.
We are very excited to be able to give our youth players the chance to play on the same field as some of their heroes!
