Pacific FC

Pacific Football Club’s Noah Verhoeven has joined Canada’s Men’s national team as a
training player for the remainder of the pre-tournament camp in Los Angeles ahead of
the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The 19-year-old midfielder will be training with the
squad through this weekend as Canada prepares for its opening game versus
Martinique on Saturday, June 15.

“This is a well-deserved opportunity by Noah,” stated Pacific FC CEO Rob Friend. “We
know of his abilities, so it’s a great gesture by John Herdman to include him into the
National Team. Hopefully, this is just the start for not only Noah, but a few of our other
young Canadians.”

Verhoeven made his debut in the national youth program at 14 and has most recently
represented Canada in the CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Championship, as well as the
Toulon tournament. Featuring in all three of Canada’s matches in Toulon, Verhoeven
was a standout player helping his U-20 side play to an impressive 0-0 tie with Portugal,
a 1-1 tie with Japan and scoring the winning goal against group winners Turkey.

Verhoeven signed with Pacific FC in January. The Burnaby native has played a major
role for the West Coast contingent starting all six Canadian Premier League (CPL)
games with multiple strong performances. Life on the Island has been a learning curve
for the young Pacific FC side with a (1-3-2) record to kick start the inaugural season.

Pacific FC (1-3-2) return to the road to face York9 FC (0-2-3), Saturday, June 15 at 9:00
a.m. PST. Vancouver Island fans can join in the excitement at Darcy’s Pub Downtown
and Westshore as well as Strathcona. The game will also be streamed live on
www.onesoccer.ca.

Make sure to grab your tickets for Pacific FC’s next home game on June 23, as Pacific
FC host Edmonton FC at Westhills Stadium in Langford.
