VANCOUVER, WA— Vancouver Victory FC enter their second year of existence ready to provide soccer action for fans in the greater Vancouver area as they announce their full 2015 season schedule. The fixture list includes pre-season, friendlies and Evergreen Premier League matches. It is subject to change.
“We are excited to finalize our schedule for our second campaign. League play last year was exciting. I’m sure this year will be exciting as well,” says Victory owner Barrett Goddard.
The Victory will play nine home matches in 2015, starting with a special pre-season friendly against Fuerza FC of Marysville on April 4 at King’s Way Turf. There will also be a home friendly April 18 at McKenzie Stadium when Eugene’s Lane United FC of the PDL visits. There will be seven Evergreen Premier League home contests, starting with the Victory’s league home opener on Sunday May 10 against Bellingham United. A first-ever home match at Doc Harris comes on June 27.
“We have scheduled three pre-season friendlies. We host new side Marysville Fuerza FC in their first match ever. We will travel to play the Oregon State Beavers in Reser Stadium and then we host PDL side Lane United in our home opener on Saturday April 18th in McKenzie Stadium at 7:00 PM,” Goddard says. “Those are three great games to test our side prior to league play.”
The Victory will play a Pac-12 school for the first time when they travel to Corvallis for a tough match-up April 11 against the Beavers, who will be in their spring scrimmage season. “The match against Oregon State was set up by Head Coach Aaron Lewis. Aaron has done a great job behind the scenes creating opportunities for the Victory to work with some of the top college programs on the West coast,” Goddard explains.
The Vancouver schedule is “back-loaded” with a string of home matches. From June 21 until the Evergreen Premier League season ends on July 26 the Victory will remain at home, playing their last five matches of the season locally.
