About St. John's Soccer Club
St. John's Soccer operates a Youth Academy program which is dedicated to the advanced development of youth players within our city. The academy program runs year round with breaks over the Christmas, Easter and September period. The academy operates over 17 teams in boys and girls between the ages of 7-17, plus a micro soccer program for those players between the ages of 3 and 6.
In 2014, St. John's Soccer also took over the house league program previously run by the City of St. John's. The house league runs from June through to the end of August and aims to provide fun soccer opportunities for kids as players, plus adults as volunteer coaches or even enthusiastic supporters! The house league program fosters an environment for learning, athleticism, and communication. If you have a young child who needs to burn some energy or is motivated to give soccer a go, the house league may be an ideal fit for you.
As the largest soccer club in the province, St. John's Soccer has organized and run senior soccer in the city for the past 98 years. Every season we have an increasing number of athletes joining our various leagues, enjoying the game, staying active and healthy. Last season we had over 40 senior teams playing in the various leagues we run.
Our senior leagues run from May through to October every year with regular season play followed by play-offs. St. John's Soccer works collaboratively with our regional soccer associations for field use, scheduling play and referees.
St. John's Senior Leagues Include:
- Senior Men (Intermediate) League

About King George V Park
King George V Park is a soccer specific stadium in St. John's, NL, located at the head of Quidi Vidi Lake in downtown St. John's. The stadium was built in 1925 as the National Stadium of Newfoundland. The stadium played host to the 1987 FIFA U-16 World Championship. It is the oldest surviving soccer specific stadium in North America.
In 2005 construction began on a major renovation involving widening and lengthening the field surface, installing an underground irrigation system, constructing new locker room facilities as well as expanding the bleacher seating. In 2006, the natural grass playing surface was replaced with a Field Turf pitch and additional seating was added to bring the total capacity at King George V Park to 10,000.
The most famous game played at King George V was on September 14, 1985 when over 13,000 people witnessed Canada's 2-1 victory over Honduras, which qualified the Canadians for their first World Cup (Mexico, 1986). It was a momentous occasion and is still considered to be the high point of Canadian soccer history.
