“Victor can be an exciting, dynamic attacking player fan favourite on his day,” interim Pacific coach James Merriman said. “He has great qualities and we believe he grew a lot on and off the field last season.”

“We think he has a lot of potential and we are looking forward to seeing what he can do next year,” Friend stated.

A former Whitecaps 2 player, Blasco can play across the front line, offering offensive flexibility to Pacific’s attack. In addition to featuring in the USL, Blasco also spent time at the youth systems of  clubs FC Barcelona and UE Cornellà in his native Spain.
