Fraser Valley Gaels are more than a football club. It is at the heart of the Irish and International community in Vancouver. We have as many events off the pitch as we have on, and we encourage members to become part of our growing family and community.
Despite the clubs brief existence, a formidable side was assembled in 2016, who went on to win Vancouver Spring league and more importantly the Western Canadian title. A huge achievement for such a young club.
Things only got better in 2017, the club manged to beat Padraig Pearses of Chicago to capture the Intermediate mens football title.
It also saw the introduction of our ladies team who won their first game in the FVG club day.
Whether its in someone's hotel room,
or party bus pub, the Fraser Valley byzz know how to have a good time!!
