We are very proud of the memories and history of the dedication to the game of soccer by the men and women of British Columbia. Their accomplishments have served to inspire others to achieve.

As you look at the History of Soccer in BC from the late 1800's where the game took foothold in mining towns like Cumberland and Ladysmith, it mirrors the growth of the province. I’m very proud to be a British Columbian, and to have been involved in the game. Many families like mine, immigrated to this Province, bringing their love of the sport with them. Ultimately, people make soccer the great game it is, and we’re so happy to be able to recognize them on this site.”Kjeld Brodsgaard, HOF Committee member & President, BC Soccer.
