Langley set to host provincial soccer championships

The Langley United Soccer Association has landed the right to host the B.C. Soccer 2013 provincial youth championships.

More than 2,500 players from 120 youth teams from U13 to U18 will participate in next summer’s three provincial championship finals July 4 to 7.

LUSA will host the Provincial A Cup championships for boys and girls at Willougbhy Park. The games will be played on the turf and grass fields.

The B Cup championships will be split with Prince George hosting the boys and the North Shore hosting the girls for those age groups.

“We received a significant number of submissions from prospective host communities and member associations; the quality of all them was excellent,” said Don Dancey, BC Soccer Youth Competitions Committee Chair and BC Soccer Director.

“This clearly demonstrates how valuable these championships are to the soccer community of B.C. We will work closely with (all three soccer associations) to deliver memorable championships for all participants.”
