Brantford Over-35 Recreational Soccer Club, formed in January 2106, is intended to foster fun fitness and friendship among soccer enthusiasts in Brantford. We are the second Avatara (incarnation) of a “Recreational Soccer Club” in Brantford. Our roots date back to 1988 when George Campbell, Vic Faiella, Cliive Lee and John Routledge started the Brantford Over-35 Recreational Soccer League. George Campbell was the first President of the League. We had a humble beginning with four teams (sixty-four players) playing at D'Aubigny Creek Park (1988) and moved to Water Works Park (1991) followed by moves to Brantford Harlequin Rugby Football Field (1995) and Wifo Field in Paris (2005). In the next twenty years, the League, not only immensely prospered financially, but also grew its membership into two divisions with ten teams in the Over-35 and four teams in the Masters’ (Over-50) Division. At the end of 2015 season, a significant number of players, mostly from the Masters’ Division, decided to form the new Brantford Over-35 Recreational Soccer Club which is transparent and accountable to its members. Article 4.3 in our constitution highlights our commitment to fiscal transparency and accountability.
