Sept 24, 2014 (ISN) -Victoria BC, United Football, which consists of the Lower Island Soccer

Association (LISA), Vancouver Island Soccer League (VISL) and the Lower Island
Women’s

Soccer Association (LIWSA) are hosting a community soccer showcase on September 27th

has to offer will be on display as top teams from the VISL, LISA and LIWSA will all
be taking

the pitch.

“Showcasing the VISL, LIWSA and LISA all at one venue will create an amazing
atmosphere

and we are really excited to bring all of the Island’s soccer fans together,” said

weekend not

to be missed as fans will be able to watch U6-U9 future stars, top men’s and women’s
teams

as well as some of the province’s best youth soccer all at Westhills Stadium.”
