If Friday afternoon was any indication, Pacific Football Club and its recently opened downtown Fan Store are sure to become a go-to destination for Vancouver Island residents. The Canadian Premier League club will kick off its inaugural season in April, but the club has already opened its merchandise and ticketing headquarters in anticipation of next year’s inaugural season.
Fans lined down the block in anticipation of the noon opening and the turnout was outstanding throughout the afternoon. Pacific FC’s first-ever signing, Kadin Chung was on hand, alongside ownership and assistant coach James Merriman to meet and greet people throughout the afternoon.
Featuring a modern aesthetic and located in the heart of downtown Victoria, Pacific FC’s flagship store carries a wealth of club products that appeal to both the casual and hardcore fan. Included on the floor displays were renderings of the soon-to-be renovated Westhills Stadium, located in the centre of scenic Langford. The stadium will boast 6,000 seats when renovations are complete; the stadium will slowly transition into a permanent setup and will challenge for arguably the most picturesque home ground in all of the league.
“The turnout we received on Friday was nothing short of outstanding,” said PFC president Josh Simpson. “To have the number of interested people come out like they did in the afternoon was very encouraging and a testament to the work that we’ve all put in getting to this point.”
The downtown store, located at 665 Fort Street across from Victoria’s Bay Centre is an ideal location for downtown shoppers, and will undoubtedly be a must-stop location as the holiday season fast approaches.
“We worked very hard to secure the ideal destination for our store that would appeal to our customers,” added Simpson. “We’re very happy with how it has turned out and look forward to continuing to serve Vancouver Island soccer fans.”
