Pacific FC to return to training and start workouts in Langford, B.C.

Pacific FC revealed that it has received approval from provincial and municipal health authorities, as well as the Canadian Premier League, to return to training.

The club will begin to hold voluntary workouts for its players at the Island Training Centre starting on Monday.

As part of the CPL’s training protocol, Pacific has adopted a multi-phase approach to training that starts with non-contact individual or small group workouts, and will allow the club to provide a secure, sanitary and controlled environment that ensures adherence to safety protocols and physical distancing measures for players and staff.

The club said the priority of these protocols is the safety and the well-being of its players, technical staff and employees, as well as their families, when they return to training.

In conjunction with the CPL, Pacific FC said it will continue to monitor all input, guidance and direction provided by all levels of government and all football governing bodies.

Last week, HFX Wanderers FC received approval from its provincial and municipal health authorities and the CPL to return to training. Wanderers began to hold voluntary closed-door workouts for its players at the Soccer Nova Scotia centre on Monday.
