Registration closed last week I believe so the teams have been posted for the upcoming season: https://vmslsoccer.com/webapps/spappz_live/team_pages (make sure the year at the top of the page is selected as 2018-19) A few questions, the biggest being does anybody know what is going on with Romania? Presumably they are just tardy on getting their registration money in to the league, but they are listed as ON HOLD in Div 1 as well as in Masters Prem and O45. Running through the Divisions: Premier nothing to report other than the previously announced merger between Chile and Inter. Guildford and NorVan up from Div. 1. Div. 1 has a few question marks, mostly centred around the aforementioned Romania situation, however, last placed GN North Delta are still listed under Div 1. which gives the Division 13 teams at the moment. Presumably this is just a clerical error? Perhaps they are not returning to the league altogether and have just been left on by accident? Surely if Romania were to not return the spot would go to Metropolitan (per league rules based on 2.27 PPG vs. 13th Legions 2.25) and not GN North Delta?? Other than that, Westside and EDC Inter down from Prem and CMF Lupi and Greencaps up from Div. 2. Div. 2 has a few changes. Richmond Olympics, who narrowly missed out on promotion from Div. 3, have taken over the relegated Richmond Royals spot, coming down from Div. 1. BCT Punjab Tigers are now "Hurricane" Tigers, perhaps more closely align with the Premier BCT side for CATing purposes. Sarajevo have jumped in with NorVan, perhaps looking for a more solid player base after they had to pull off a bit of an escape act down the stretch and it looks like Sierra FC from the BMSL have teamed up with Westside, merging with the Black Aces side that won promotion from Div. 3. The other promoted sides are West Coast Saints, Greencaps B and Strathcona who earned the bonus spot vacated by Sea to Sky FC. Again in Div. 2 there seems to be a technical glitch at Bosna SC are still listed in Division 2. One assumes that spot actually belongs to the relegated GN North Delta who are still listed under Div 1. Also Snipers are listed as ON HOLD and, after limping to the finish line, you wonder if perhaps they are mulling whether or not they can field a side. Once more, should they opt out, you would assume one of GFC or West Coast Celts, from Div. 3, would get the spot. Lots of turnover, as usual, in Div. 3. Relegated from Div. 2 are Euro FC, Royal City SC and, presumably, Bosna. Beyond that, seemingly not returning are America, VanCity Snipers, PCOV Europa, Akal, Ex Patriots, Richmond Olympics, FC Ui, North Delta United, Cosmos FC and Ante-Up Utd. Not much surprise with Europa, Snipers and Akal as they all forfeited games last season (Akal folding at the halfway point) and struggled to field a side regularly. As mentioned, Olympics have found a way into Div. 2 and it appears Ante-Up are off to O35. America still has a team in the Multicultural League this summer, so it stand to reason that they are seeking greener pastures in maybe the BMSL or FVSL. So too with Ex Patriots who look to have cropped up in the RASA summer league and might be planning on playing there for the winter as well. One assume North Delta would be playing in the FVSL and FC Ui and Cosmos have likely just pulled the plug. Coming in to replace them are CMF Jr. Wolves, the U21 Champions (watch out for them as promotion contenders) as well as another new CMF team, "United". Another BCT team in Apna Tigers, who I believe are coming under the BCT banner from the FVSL, as well as a new side called Kurds United. Overall though the Division has shrunk from 33 teams to 25 so it will be interesting to see how the league structures the groups. Also shrinking is the U21 Division; down from 10 teams to 6. Champions CMF are off to Division 3 and EDC Inter are rolling much of this EDC side into their Div. 1 spot. Also gone are GN Sporting, Metro Athletic, Sarajevo and PoCo. Coming in are yet another team from the rapidly expanding BCT club, this one simply just "Tigers FC", and Guildford FC are returning to the Division. At Masters it looks to be mostly status quo, the only question mark is the "ON HOLD" Romania in Masters Prem. Other than that, NorVan are up to Prem, Flying Horses down to Div. 1. FC Serbia up to Div. 1, North Coquitlam (now under the CMF banner) down to Div. 2. Falconetti's have finally called time on their stint in the VMSL, hard to believe they spent a season in Masters Prem, but Ante-Up are over from Open Div. 3 and FC Nikola Tesla have come in from the RASA to round out an 8 team Masters Div. 2. Similar story in O45; Pacific 96ers and Rino's Bulldogs are up to Prem with FC Serbia and 22 Ave Lions going down. The Lions have now merged with Columbus and will play under them next season, though that spot is one of a few listed as ON HOLD along with Arya O45 Div. 1 and Romania in O45 Prem. A couple of new side at this level with Nikola Tesla having a "B" group as well as Croatia Stallions.
