Remembrance Day - Lest We Forget

BC Soccer would like to recognize and honour all Veterans on November 11; Remembrance Day is a memorial day since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

For those member organizations and leagues that have matches taking place on this day, we encourage a moment of silence prior to kick off. If at all possible, BC Soccer supports not hosting matches at all on Remembrance Day.

Please also note BC Socer's office is closed on Monday, November 13th and will re-open again on Tuesday, November 14th.
