BC Soccer Expands Partnership with Soccer Express by Creating Online Stores for all Four Youth Provincial Cups

A Cup, Les Sinnott Memorial B Cup, Girls B Cup, and Premier Cup all have their own specific online apparel store 

Vancouver BC, June 5, 2018 -  BC Soccer is excited to announce an expanded partnership with Soccer Express and the creation of four online Provincial Cup stores in which players, coaches, and family members have the ability to order all of their BC Soccer Provincial Cup apparel, both on-line and onsite. Each of the four competitions will have their own store in which apparel can be ordered online from now until a month after the competition and onsite during the competition.

“Our aim is to improve the player and family experience when participating at the BC Soccer Provincial Cup Finals competition,” said BC Soccer Executive Director Jason Elligott. “Introducing these online stores, in partnership with Soccer Express allow not only player and team pre-competition sales that can be picked up on site, but also allows for sales after the competition for those who were not able to while at the competition.”

On-site activations will be at each of the four Provincial Cup sites (Vancouver Island, Richmond, Burnaby, and Kamloops) which will allow for all players to pick up online orders and or purchase their apparel onsite. The online and on-site activations will have the same options with some additional selected items being offered online only. BC Soccer encourages all purchasers to ensure they are on the correct competition store as each of the competitions has a slightly different logo, specific to that competition.

“We are extremely proud to be able to add to our growing support package that we can put into play with our key partners such as BC Soccer,” said Soccer Express Sales Director, Blair Manifold.  “We hope to be able to add significant value for all participants, as well as their supporters. We understand that Provincial Championships are the pinnacle for all players and staff, and this motivates all of us at SX to continually find ways to add to the overall experience. Good Luck to everyone participating!”
