2023 / 2024 Season – Club Announcement

Last season was challenging for OLSC Vancouver and our partners at the Butcher & Bullock. Game attendance dropped significantly, and we lost our status as the biggest and best-supported club in Vancouver, with rivals like Chelsea consistently drawing higher crowds. The hospitality industry also faced numerous challenges during this time.

For the upcoming 2023/2024 season, we will be selling memberships, but please note that membership does not guarantee priority entry to games. Attendance is open to all, regardless of membership.

To help us track loyalty and attendance, we recommend all members sign up for the Freehouse.co loyalty program, which offers rewards and cashback for spending at the Butcher & Bullock. This helps us monitor who attends each game and for the bigger fixtures, the pub will provide us with lists of who has attended the most games so that we can give people priority based on how many games they’ve attended.

Buying a membership means supporting OLSC for the season, and the fees will go towards running the club website and hopefully some new club merchandise. We encourage fans to attend as many games as possible at the Butcher and Bullock this season!

2022/2023 Season

The new season is around the corner!

We recently met with Freehouse(Co) to talk about some changes at the Butcher & Bullock as we move into the 2022-2023 season. There have been many challenges throughout the last 2 years and we are very lucky that we are perhaps the only Official Supporters Club that has not been drastically affected by the pandemic situation. The staff at the Butcher & Bullock have worked hard to keep the pub open for match viewings. That being said, some changes are necessary:

  • The Butcher & Bullock wants feedback on the food. Please give honest and constructive feedback if you have some on how the food & drink can be improved (use the form at the end of the post). They are committed to improving.
  • Absolutely no outside food and drinks during games (No coffee, no Tim Hortons etc.) – The Butcher & Bullock will work to improve the coffee, so don’t bring your own!

  • The Butcher & Bullock will add a $5 charge to each bill which will be taken off the bill if you spend more than $5 at games – some fans come in and don’t buy anything and this needs to stop as the venue needs to make money to stay open.

  • There will be jersey and prize giveaways at a small number of games this season!

  • Drink Specials – Guinness for $6, and Carlsberg for $6 during games!

  • If Liverpool score 5 goals in a game, everyone gets a free pint if they want one!

  • We will work with Freehouse(Co) to hold more promotional events and parties throughout the 2022/2023 season – hopefully starting with a season opener party if we can get one planned in time!
