BC Soccer Hall of Fame
On November 7, 2020, BC Soccer unveiled 15 new inductees admitted to the BC Soccer Hall of Fame. The inductees demonstrate incredible achievement from 1893 to 2014, from teams to players, to coaches and referees. The “Class of 2020” is the first group of inductees to be nominated by and selected by British Columbians themselves.
One of the “Teams of Distinction” was a true stand-out. Surrey United Premier Women’s Team 2004-2014 won an unparalleled 11 straight BC championships (the longest winning streak in BC A-Cup history) and finished in the top three in all 11 Canadian national championships which included gold medals in 2006 and 2011. Notably, the following players/team officials are current coaches with Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club:
