News and Media

The Vancouver Street Soccer League is lucky to receive a great deal of coverage from the city’s various news organizations. This coverage has frequently been crucial in helping us secure batches of funding, and with raising our public profile.

The match between the VSSL and Kettle Society in July of 2016 received quite a bit of coverage.
