Presidents Report

The Pacific Coast Soccer League season will start on April 30th and will run into late July,
at this time I would like to welcome all teams to the 2022 season and wish them all the best of luck.

The Board has worked hard to put together a list of very talented soccer teams throughout the province, we feel we have the best amateur league in the country and offers young players an opportunity to play in a league that will showcase their skills and hopefully give them a springboard to play in higher level leagues such as CPSL and BC1.   

We welcome the new teams to our League and wish them luck, 

I would like to thank the board and all team officials for helping us put together a schedule for the PCSL, you should see the schedule on our website after this weekend, we invite all soccer fans to come and watch the games in your area.

Thank you


Phil Fasciglione
President PCSL

2020 John F Kennedy Cup Tournament, June 6-7th in Penticton

Pacific Coast Soccer League is pleased to announce  Penticton  Soccer Club
will be Hosting a  Men's Premier International tournament named the John F
Kennedy Cup Tournament  to be held at  Kings Park Penticton, BC., 2020, June 6th/7th
weekend.

Originating  in 1960 the John F Kennedy trophy ( Kennedy Cup) was born out of an idea to have the annual international Championship which would be played for by top caliber representative men amateur soccer teams from Canada USA and Mexico. The Trophy remains unique even today in that it
is the sole sporting  award  to which the late US President ever lent his name.
When the tournament was inaugurated in 1961,  the late  President Kennedy, recognizing the physical requirements in the sport of soccer, gave his name to the trophy in connection with his physical fitness campaign. Mexico participated from 1961 to 1966, but  in 1989 the PCSL revised the tournament format with Washington State. Oregon State and the Pacific Coast League as the participants. Three leagues alternate the running of the event each year, and this year, Washington State will be represented by Washington league Champions Washington Premier FC. Oregon State will be represented by the current holders of the JFK cup,  IPS Marathon Taverna.

The PCSL will be represented by the 2019 Shelia Anderson Memorial Cup Champions, Vancouver Tigers FC., and  Okanagan United Selects, which will include players  from Kamloops, Kelowna and Penticton.
The Pacific Coast Soccer League encourage everyone to take the opportunity to attend  this International event  on the June 6th/7th weekend of 2020 at Kings Park, Penticton, BC. The Penticton SC is sponsoring the event and they have been members of the Pacific Coast Soccer League for many years participating and promoting Adult Soccer in their community. We wish to thank them for making this event possible, and for  bringing this International event to the Interior of British Columbia for the first time.

PCSL President
