Vancouver FC has unveiled its first-ever primary and alternate kits by Macron ahead of their inaugural Canadian Premier League season.
The kits were officially unveiled on Saturday, March 25 during a community match against FC Tigers Vancouver, hosted by Fusion Football Club, and are on sale now, ahead of Vancouver’s first Canadian Premier League (CPL) match on Saturday, April 15, a battle of British Columbia that will see VFC visit West Coast rival Pacific FC at Starlight Stadium in Langford, B.C. The squad is scheduled to kick off its home schedule at Willoughby Community Park at the Langley Events Centre on Sunday, May 7 against Cavalry FC.
The newcomers to the Canadian Premier League arrive in style with a pair of eye-catching kits that are already receiving rave reviews from fans on the Lower Mainland for their bold designs and clever tributes to both the local and national soccer scenes.
The kit features front of jersey sponsor CIBC, which was announced last November as part of the organization’s sponsorship agreement with the CPL and Canada Soccer. Carlsberg, which joined the League as a partner in October 2022, is represented as VFC’s sleeve sponsor.
The club’s 2023 primary kit celebrates Greater Vancouver as a whole. The all-black kit features the names of the 53 cities and municipalities that make up the area, the names repeating all over the front of the shirt to create an embossed pattern that expresses a strong sense of belonging to the community.
Vancouver’s alternate kit features a classic hoop design in the club’s red and black colourway. The kit is inspired by the rise of Canadian soccer and pays tribute to the people who have worked hard to elevate the game from coast to coast, giving a nod to the country with a subtle maple leaf printed on the back of the neck.
“Got a little surprise for you guys”
