“We are proud to have developed and introduced League1 BC into the soccer landscape of British Columbia and Canada,” said Jason Elligott, Executive Director, BC Soccer. “Introducing this level of play helped fill a gap in the pathway. We are thankful for the support CSB provided BC Soccer as the league was introduced and we will continue to be here to support the league as the operations shift out of the BC Soccer offices.”
I thought he quit?

I think this was always an inevitability. CSB wants to control the pyramid. They will eventually operate all the L1s across Canada and introduce a tier 2 level in between L1 and CPL

Not quite L1BC, but a close cousin in a total shambles. Rumor is these guys dropped $750k on their 1st season and never recovered.

So Unity now moving operations to Surrey United.

Also I don't believe this was the announcement to which @dezza was alluding.

Slowly but surely it appears the youth clubs are working their way into the L1BC set up.

Will be interested to see if this helps the Pro-Am model and brings more money to the league set up. Or if it just waters down the product and slowly L1BC becomes just a glorified summer league.

Nah this is not the announcement... the 8th team is going to be Burnaby FC, playing out of BBY Lake.

regarding what happens to the product... L1O got so watered down they recently went to a 3 tier format:

L1O Premier
L1O Championship
L2O

We need new blood and new ideas…& a legitimate pathway out of the mediocrity that playing in BC entails.

This is just another version of what they did at youth with Metro/HPL/BCSPL or whatever it is now….everyone wants their slice to sell to their members that they have “the pathway”

When it reality the path will changes at the whims of the aggrieved or the dicktators that want something different in a few years time
