On behalf of everyone in the local Soccer Community, BC Soccer extends its sincerest condolences to the family of Brandon Bassi after the 19 year old passed away following a tragic accident last weekend.

Bassi was 12 years old when he first joined the Provincial Program, while a member of Coastal FC and the Whitecaps Residency Program.

Last year, he joined Simon Fraser University as a Freshman.

Only two weeks ago, Brandon was celebrating an Adult Provincial A Cup Championship with CCB LFC United.

There has already been an outpouring of support and grief from numerous current and former coaches and team-mates...a testiment to how popular and respected Brandon Bassi was both within and beyond the soccer community. 

We respect the Bassi family's need for privacy at this time.
