I was going to write an article about this but I can't wait that long...

The 2004 BC Provincial Final will be played May 15th @ Swangard Stadium, to be followed by a Whitecaps game.

Finally, the BC Final is being played where it always should be played. Apparently no thanks to certain FVSL executives who wanted to insist that this was their year to host and they wanted to do it in Chilliwack :rolleyes:

If we are looking for better exposure for our game, why would the FVSL put up a fuss when this option presented itself? No disrespect to Chilliwack, but fcuk me, are you serious?

Anyways, discuss.

Cheers,

~Regs.

About time.

That'll be a terrific place for us to defend our title. At least then all the teams who lose their best players will still get to see them play in May. In all seriousness though, that'll be a terrific place for us to defend our title.

I guess this means the Semi's will be in Victoria again? Brutal. Better than driving to Chilliwhack though.

The committee better check with A.F.C. to make sure that venue will be okay for them. With a growing club like that, there might not be enough seats in the stands to watch them win the Cup. Personally, I don't give a fcuk because I won't be playing in it or watching it. :D :confused:

Well, whatever the situation, having Swanguard as a venue is best for promoting the league(s) to be involved in the final. We'd get a far bigger audience. The idea of playing before the Caps is long overdue.

That said, Chilliwack would not be a bad second option. Great facility, the locals would probably fill it, top notch pitch, free hotdogs for the youngsters...;)

Seriously though, other than perhaps Town Centre (haven't seen that pitch in years), and obviously Swanguard, what town has a better facility in the Lower Mainland? Having our season opener there on the Friday night was top notch!

Pull your head out of the sand!

Having the game showcased at Swangard is the best way to give Senior amateur soccer the exposure that it is sorely lacking around these parts. It is not a "league" thing.

LFC2,

What exactly am I supposed to check my sources for? Perhaps I should just wait for the RCMP to call :D

Cheers,

~Regs.

You talking to me?

Not sure how my head is in the sand with that statement.

Please explain.

Thanks in advance,

Osterridge (sp?).

I took your statement to mean that the only benefactors of having the game at Swangard would be the VMSL or the VISL.

:D

Now that's just plain ignorant on your part.

Ignorance, I say!:rolleyes: More than that, very KNVB-ish of you. We all know what that means.;)

To clarrify for Regs and all those confused by that statement:

I (Dude of TTP) think that Swanguard is the best venue for the Provincial Finals, regardless of the leagues involved in said finals.

No, no, no... don't be going and putting words in my mouth, if I had said it, I would have suggested it would be a fine showcase for all three leagues. VMSL vs. VISL on the pitch and FVSL off it shagging balls. That is if I had said it.BUT I didn't. New KNVB has too much respect for all players and leagues.


KNVBachangedman...honest.

Volunteering for ball shagging duty.

Swangard's the place.

Before a 'Caps game even better.

Regardless,

FVSLforever



For a guy with a sore neck and back, not bad pissing there Davie. ;)

Ok, just so that I am clear, it is Swangard Stadium that is in question, not the stadium guarded by the swans?
Please clarify and I will move on.:confused: :confused: :confused:

LFC2 is a KNVB

Is there another? Oh yes; that one in Burnaby with all those SoccerCity signs decorating it...
