Soccer fans of Victoria, are you ready?
Pacific FC is back in Langford once more, and even better? After a long hiatus, fans will be allowed to return to the stands, meaning that you (and yours!) can cheer on the players of PFC live and in-person.
And if you’re as excited as we are, we have a treat for you – we’re giving away an epic prize pack which includes four tickets to this weekend’s home opener plus a bunch of extras! You’ll find contest details below.
On Friday, July 30th, PFC takes on Cavalry FC of Calgary at 6:30 p.m. for their home opener at Starlight Stadium – the very first Canadian Premier League home soccer game there since the fall of 2019.
After a season spent in a bubble on Prince Edward Island in 2020, and a month spent in a bubble in Winnipeg to start this season Starlight Stadium (formerly Westhills Stadium) will be bursting with pent-up excitement.
Heading into the match Pacific FC sits in second place, tied on points with Cavalry but ahead on goal-difference.
Both teams love to attack and dominate possession and are equally adept at pressing the
opposing team to win the ball back if they lose it. Expect the frenetic nature of this match to be ramped up even higher now that fans are back to cheer their team on in person.
A win by Pacific FC in this match will put them one point behind first place Valour FC, who
incidentally come to Vancouver Island just five days later.
The first Saturday home match in two years should be an extremely passionate affair. Matches between Pacific FC and FC Edmonton have always featured multiple goals and expect this one to be no different.
Since it’s been so long since the last time we were all able to cheer on this team in person, now is the time to come out and support Vancouver Island’s team.
According to current provincial outdoor gathering guidelines, the stadium, located in Langford, will be allowed to host up to 5,000 fans this season.
The club’s season tickets are on sale now, and membership comes with a ton of perks like 50% off a 2021 season jersey, the best price on 10 CPL home games and tons more.
