Folks, as you know, we simply cannot put on events or give membership added value without the support of our sponsors.



Our 2 Title sponsors in Kharma Salons & the Strath have been awesome, and make a lot of things possible.

This year for our Finals, there is no shortage of sponsor involvement.
All MVP's will receive a Strathcona Hotel Gift Card courtesy Nico Craveiro of Pemberton Holmes Realty.
All MVP's will also receive a gift package from Lyle Eggen of Labatt's Breweries.
Winning teams will receive a keepsake courtesy John Leier of Soccerworld.

Kelly Wallace of Kelly Wallace Photography will be there snapping pics.
Rose Raposo of Michael Hill Jewelers Hillside will be there taking pictures too. 
Island Savings is taking care of teams when they going into the Grille next door.

We are an amateur league, and we get a ton of community support, real support and involvement.
I hope you remember that when it is time to scratch their backs.

Hope to see you all at the stadium one last time, before we head into BC Provincial Cup

VISL enters Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame

The VISL is proud to share that the League has been inducted into the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame.
Having the Hall recognize us is quite an honor, and no doubt there has been many a player, coach, administrator, and referee involved over the past 126 years.
The event will take place at a sold out Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort on Saturday Oct 23.
Thanks to BC Soccer for being our sponsor.
