Surrey United Awarded BC Soccer Premier League (HPL) Franchise

Surrey United Soccer Club is proud to announce that we have been awarded a franchise in the BC Soccer Premier League (HPL).

Today is a monumental day in the club’s history as we consider this to be a critical component of our overall soccer programming and it is tremendously exciting to be involved in this new league from the outset.

There are many aspects of the league still to be finalized and there is a considerable amount of work to be done.

There are a number of questions that today remain unanswered but which will be solved in the weeks ahead.

We believe that one of the key factors in our franchise bid was the stability and reputation of the club which has been moulded over many many years by our Executive, Board of Directors and Technical and Administrative Staff both past and present.

So thanks to all of you for your energy, commitment, guidance and good governance.

We should also like to thank our Regional Partners Guildford Athletic Club and Langley United Youth Soccer Association who have provided their unconditional support and trusted in our integrity to honour our commitment to actively engage them in this venture.

We also congratulate the other franchisees and look forward to working with them to ensure this league creates the right environment and pathway for elite soccer players to progress to the highest levels.

Our hearts go out to those unsuccessful franchise applicants who we know will be desperately disappointed.

Finally and most importantly a huge thank you to all of our coaches, managers and membership for their commitment to all of our soccer programming and contribution in establishing our club as one of the top organizations.
