Chilliwack FC soccer squads promoted

Chilliwack FC's men and women will tackle a high level of competition this fall.

Success in 2014 has led to promotion in 2015 for two Chilliwack FC soccer squads.

The division one men have been bumped up to the Fraser Valley Soccer League’s premier division.

The team stood atop the division one standings for most of last season before a three game slide landed them in third place. The two teams finishing above them already had teams in the premier division, so Chilliwack FC got the promotion.

Tryouts for the premier, third and U-21 division teams takes place Thursday, June 18, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on the turf field at Chilliwack secondary school.

CFC’s women have been elevated to the Metro Womens’ Soccer League select division.

The women competed against 35 teams in division one last season, their first after being bumped up from U-21.

Chilliwack FC finished second overall to earn another promotion.

Tryouts for the select and U-21 teams takes place Tuesday, June 16, from 8 to 9:30 p.m. at Exhibition Stadium.
