League1 BC Announces Full Schedule for 2023 Season

By L1BC Staff, 02/15/23, 12:45AM PST


With just over 70 days until kickoff of its second season, League1 BC Presented by Hall is announcing its full schedule of matches for 2023! The excitement from the Inaugural season shifts toward Season Two, with the league and all eight clubs ready to build upon the success achieved in 2022.

The eight League1 BC clubs will compete across 112 regular season matches from April to July with each club playing each other once Home and once Away in the single table format. The top four teams in each Division advance to the Semi-Final Playoffs the last weekend of July, and the winners of those matches advance to the League1 BC Championship Finals held on the BC Day long weekend.

League1 BC’s second season kicks off on April 29th with a re-match of the League1 BC Championship Finals on the Men’s side as TSS Rovers host Nautsa’mawt FC at Swangard Stadium. The excitement of the day continues with the league’s first expansion club, Harbourside FC, hosting their inaugural match day in Nanaimo against Unity FC. The second match day of the opening weekend is a repeat from last season, with Altitude FC traveling to Kamloops to face Rivers FC and Whitecaps FC hosting Highlanders FC in Point Grey.

From a rivalry perspective, the highly anticipated ‘Island Derby’ between Highlanders FC and Harbourside FC will take place in Nanaimo on May 19th, with the return leg on July 2nd in Victoria. The ‘Ironworkers Derby’ will see TSS Rovers host Altitude FC on June 11th, and one week later Altitude FC return the favour and play host in North Vancouver on June 18th.

Rivers FC and their closest geographic rival, Unity FC, get set to compete in the first of their match days on May 28th, and Unity FC heads to Kamloops on July 8th for the last of their Home and Away series. The reigning League1 BC Women’s Finals Champions, Whitecaps FC, will be formidable once again in 2023, and the club has their Finals re-match against Nautsa’mawt FC at Home on June 11th and Away on Canada Day, July 1st.

The highly contested regular season will reward the individual division champions, as the Regular Season Champion in the Men’s Division will be League1 BC’s representative into the Canadian Championship in 2024 while the regular season Champion in the Women’s Division will be League1 BC’s representative at the Women’s Inter-Provincial Championships.

Clubs will be releasing their ticket information in the coming days, so please keep your eyes on their respective websites and social media channels for additional details!
