With the 5th overall pick of the 2021 U-Sports Draft, Pacific FC select defender Chris Lee from the UBC Thunderbirds.
A product of the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency Program, Lee is a left-sided fullback with exciting potential. Born in 2001, Lee would qualify as a domestic U-21 player for the 2021 season along with current Pacific FC players Alessandro Hojabrpour and Sean Young.
“Chris Lee is a player we know very well from his time with the Whitecaps Residency Program” said James Merriman, Associate Head Coach. “Chris is a student of the game with good potential. We look forward to working with him again.”
The 2021 CPL season is targeting to kickoff on May 22nd in local markets, dependent on local health authority approval. 2021 Season Tickets are now available starting at $22/month! Stay tuned to pacificfc.ca and follow the club on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for the latest news.
