As we gear-up to Pacific Football Club’s inaugural season beginning, there have been many new additions to the team – the latest and greatest, though, is a vibrant purple starfish named Stewie, who was announced as the team’s official mascot today!
There was much anticipation leading up to today, the mascot’s Twitter account handle simply stating “PFC Mascot”, with the profile picture as a question mark – that is, until PFC’s kickoff party in downtown Victoria this afternoon, where the mysterious mascot finally revealed his true identity.
