Play for Pay? New Prince George pro Soccer squad looks for players!

Local soccer players who feel they have the right stuff to move into the pro's can pack up their shorts, shoes and socks and head off to Prince George for the first week of November.

Prince George FC will be playing an ambitious little schedule in something called the Canadian Major Indoor Soccer League (CMISL), a winter time diversion that is setting up shop in the Northern Interior city.

Prince George FC will join Calgary FC, the Edmonton Drillers, the Saskatoon Accelerators and the Winnipeg Alliance as the fifth team of the league, they will also play matches against a number of American teams currently listed in the US based Professional Arena Soccer League.

The season gets underway in January with a home opener against the Tacoma Stars, the team will play six home games at Prince George's CN centre as well as six games on the road.

The squad introduced their head coach today, Sipho Sibiya , who heads up the soccer academy in the city.
He will be hosting and evaluating the open try outs for the team, which are set for November 2 and 4 at Prince George's Roll-a-Dome, locals who may be inclined to make the trip can contact the Prince George FC coach at 250-613-8328.
