History of our Club

Vancouver United Football Club (VanU) was founded in 2011 as a result of joining three long-standing west side Vancouver clubs - Dunbar Soccer Association, Kerrisdale Soccer Club, and Point Grey Soccer Association. The founding clubs go back to the late 1950’s, and VanU inherited from these clubs a long tradition of strongly engaged players and teams, community involvement, supportive families, and a large number of volunteers.

VanU is one of the largest soccer clubs in the Lower Mainland with approximately 3000 boys and girls from the ages of three to 17 playing at the U4 to U18 levels. The club also hosts teams for women playing in their respective adult leagues. While most of the players are from the west side of Vancouver, there are many players from throughout the Vancouver area.

Where We Play

Practices and home games use artificial turf fields at UBC, Jericho, South Memorial, Trillium, Point Grey Secondary and UHill Secondary. We also use grass and all-weather fields at numerous local elementary schools and Vancouver Park Board fields. VanU has over 500 volunteers as team coaches and managers, age group coordinators and Board members who help to ensure our players and families have a positive and memorable experience in the soccer community.
