Date and location are set for first ever League1 BC Finals

League1 BC Finals will take place at Swangard Stadium on BC Day, Monday August 1st

June 22, 2022 - Vancouver BC

The top two teams in League1 BC’s Women’s and Men’s divisions in the regular season will battle for the historical first finals in the league’s young history, at one of the finest soccer venues in B.C. and on a very appropriate holiday.

First place team will play the second placed team in both finals for the unique chance to claim victory at the first ever League1 BC Finals.

League1 BC Fans will be able to access tickets to the finals starting July 1st. All V1P Fans have already secured tickets and preferred seating for the event. Members of the Groundhoppers and Insiders will get priority access to ticketing before they are offered to the general public at $20.00 each (general admission). While the V1P level is sold out, there is still time to join the remaining two levels of the Fan Program. All youth soccer players in their club uniforms will enjoy free admission to the event.

League1 BC General Manager Sian Bagshawe looks forward to what will be an historic event; “It was important to us that we showcase the top teams in a great venue on BC Day, as a singular celebration event.  We hope fans from all clubs, even those not featured in the Finals, will attend, and support our players for their achievements in our inaugural season.”

League1 BC Women’s and Men’s Finals will be streamed on HomeTeam Live with special coverage.  V1P and Groundhopper members receive free access throughout the season. Monthly subscriptions for the streaming service are still available. Time for each match will be announced in the coming days.

Kick-off times will be 1:00pm and 4:00pm with the order of men's/women's yet to be determined.
