Honoring Kjeld Brodsgaard: A Legacy of Sportsmanship and Dedication

BC Soccer invites the soccer community in BC to celebrate the remarkable life and legacy of Kjeld Brodsgaard, a revered member and champion of BC Soccer. Brodsgaard's impact on the sport and his unwavering commitment to fostering talent is highlighted through his impressive achievements, including his pivotal role in London Boxing Club's 1975 Canadian Championship victory and his induction into the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame for soccer and wrestling in 2013. 

In addition to his on-field contributions, Brodsgaard served as a dedicated leader within BC Soccer, holding various positions including VP Adult and President, for a remarkable span of eleven years. 

To honour Brodsgaard's memory, his family has requested donations to KidSport, an organization dedicated to removing financial barriers for young athletes. Until the end of April, BC Soccer is supporting a campaign to raise funds to support KidSport, an organization close to Kjeld's heart. As part of the campaign, the 2024 BC Soccer Adult Provincial Championships will be played “in memory of Kjeld”.
