CityStudio Stories: Remembering the North Shore United Football Club

With the 2022 FIFA World Cup taking place in Qatar from November 20 to December 18, this is a great moment to reflect back on North Vancouver’s rich soccer history.

In their heyday in the 1930s, North Shore United was one of the best teams in this country. In 1938, North Shore United were crowned the Dominion men’s soccer champions, and, after several years without a national playoff due to the second world war, won it again over a decade later in 1949.
