Rules and About the Juan de Fuca Plate

The Juan de Fuca Plate is a supporter-sponsored competition for British Columbian clubs in the United Soccer Leagues Premier Development League (USL PDL), a semi-professional league with clubs in Canada, the United States, and the Caribbean.

Founded in 2012 by supporters of the Vancouver Whitecaps and Victoria Highlanders, the Juan de Fuca Plate is meant to spur interest across British Columbia in soccer at the semi-professional level, and to inspire good-natured rivalry between the competing cities. Standings in regular season games between all USL PDL teams in British Columbia count towards the championship. Every year, the winner will receive the Juan de Fuca Plate.

For the 2014 USL PDL season, teams competing for the Juan de Fuca Plate will be the Victoria Highlanders and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23 team in a two-legged tie. The first game of the 2014 Juan de Fuca Plate will take place Sunday, May 4, 2014 at Royal Athletic Park in Victoria, British Columbia. The final leg will take place Friday, May 27 at the University of British Columbia's Thunderbird Stadium. The Plate was first awarded July 11, 2012 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, British Columbia to the victorious team, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23s. Vancouver defended their championship June 28, 2013 at Thunderbird Stadium.
