Posted on May 6th, 2017 by BC Soccer

Whistler BC, May 6, 2017 – Steven Reed has been elected as President of Canada Soccer at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Members. Steven Reed will serve the remaining three years of Victor Montagliani's four-year term, who leaves his post after being elected President of CONCACAF.

“Thank you to Victor Montagliani for the tremendous leadership and commitment he has provided to soccer in our country,” said Kjeld Brodsgaard, BC Soccer President. “Victor has led our country through unprecedented times and to have Steven Reed elected to carry forward that vision is great for our game,” added Brodsgaard.

During Victor Montagliani's tenure as President, Canada Soccer hosted the record-setting FIFA Women's World Cup, won back-to-back medals at the Women's Olympic Football Tournament, and set a single-match attendance record for a Canadian national team event - of any sport - ever held in this country.

Steven Reed has been active in soccer for more than 50 years as a player, coach, and administrator. He has been a Canada Soccer board member since 2006 and Vice-President since 2012. Victor, meanwhile, will continue to provide an important voice for Canadian soccer as President of CONCACAF and Vice-President of FIFA.

BC Soccer is a proud member association of Canada Soccer.
