5 year anniversary
2018 marks the fifth anniversary of the Lane United Football Club. Lane United started in 2013 and then was rewarded the 2014 PDL franchise of the year and the 2015 Player of the Year. Coach John Galas along side brother and Managing Director Dave Galas have seen Lane United from its inception and hope to continue to see the club grow into a professional level side.
On the importance of reaching this 5 year milestone, Managing Director, Dave Galas says, “This is a special year for Lane United Football Club. Since 2013, when we signed the PDL papers and played the Timbers U-23s at South Eugene H.S. looking over at Civic Stadium, a lot has changed. Our commitment to the community, a future at Civic Park, and developing some of the best players in the country has not.
Back in July 2013 we would have hoped to be playing in the pro ranks by now, but the dedication to that dream, the growth of the sport nationwide, developments in the new D3, and unwavering support from our sponsors and the community at large means that that dream is alive as ever. We have some great additions in store for this season, and hope to get more and more fans behind us on this amazing journey.”
This season opens up April 28th at home at 7pm with an exhibition game against the Vancouver Victory. Tickets launch Saturday with a kick off party at Level Up Arcade at 6pm.
