Club Statement Regarding 2024 Concacaf Champions Cup Round One Venue

“We are delighted to be representing the Canadian Premier League in the 2024 Concacaf Champions Cup. It seemed such a pipedream when we first kicked off in 2019.

As the northernmost club in Concacaf, we are acutely aware of the possible risks that playing in February on natural grass may pose. We are, after all, more than 51 degrees north of the southern most of the 41 members of Concacaf.

Despite the unseasonably mild start we have had to western Canadian winter, the frost is already quite deep in the subsurface of our pitch.

As such, we are looking at ways to mitigate any risks by playing our first-round match at an alternative Concacaf approved venue.

That venue is Starlight Stadium in Langford, B.C., home of Canadian Premier League club Pacific FC.

We are pleased to be able to have this option and to be able to play at a venue that has hosted both Concacaf and National Team events. Ticketing and schedule information will be released early in 2024.”
