Sources indicate that representatives from potential clubs will be meeting in the 2nd half of August.

BC Soccer will be looking to get firm commitments from them as they need to decide whether to move forward with a 2020 launch or delay until 2021.

What I'm hearing is the meeting is to find out if Rovers and Highlanders will be "in". If they are, the league is happening. If not, dead for now.

Prospective clubs met last week. A deadline was set of 5 weeks for them to review everything, then either commit or pull out of joining the league in 2020.

What clubs were at the table?
I believe the clubs that "matter" at this time are TSS Rovers and Victoria Highlanders. if they are "in" the league may proceed. If they are "out" the whole thing goes back to the drawing board.

Everybody has been pretty hush hush about the big meeting leading most people to think that this is now a 2021 project at best.

I am told that both TSS and Highlanders are in if the league is a go. However, currently not enough groups have put their cards on the table at this point, hence @dezza referring to a 5 week deadline. Fortunately for the USL clubs, the USL understands their situation and will be allowing them to operate on a year to year basis and not force them to commit for three years as previously rumoured.

Sept. 30 is the deadline for firm applications from teams with a go/no go call for 2020 being made on Oct. 7.
