On the men’s side, Burnaby FC is forming a U21 (2003-born and younger) team which will compete in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League (VMSL) along with a Division 4 and either a Division 3 or Division 2 team. Burnaby FC will provide all its adult teams with administrative, equipment, fields, registration, and league liaison support.
The adult teams are joining Burnaby FC as part of the amalgamation between Mountain United FC, Cliff Avenue United FC, Wesburn Soccer Club and Burnaby Girls Soccer Club. Existing players from these teams will receive a registration link from their current coaches. Burnaby FC welcomes new adult players and asks any interested players to submit a BFC evaluation form.

“I cannot over emphasize the importance of having a continuous pathway and a clear transition from youth to adult football, it provides youth a guide of what is next in the club’s system,” said BFC Technical Director – HP Lee Tregonning. “The progression from youth play to the adult side gives players an additional opportunity to continue enjoying the game for life.”
