Vancouver United Football Club (VanU) was founded in 2011 as a result of joining three long-standing west side Vancouver youth soccer clubs - Dunbar Soccer Association, Kerrisdale Soccer Society, and Point Grey Soccer Association. The founding clubs go back to the late 1950’s, and VanU inherited from these clubs a long tradition of strongly engaged players and teams, community involvement, supportive families, and a large number of volunteers.

VanU is one of the largest soccer clubs in the Lower Mainland with over 3000 boys and girls from the ages of three to 17 playing at the U4 to U18 levels. The club also hosts teams for women and men playing in their respective adult leagues. While most of the players are from the west side of Vancouver, there are many players from throughout the Vancouver area.
