Soccer, Soccer and More Soccer


As the name suggests, Soccer Express is all about soccer. That is immediately clear from the huge storefront graphics to amazing amount of square footage dedicated to ‘the beautiful game’.

Upon opening the front door of the Soccer Express retail location it is immediately clear that these guys are really into soccer and after 25 years they are still going strong. Founded in Coquitlam 25 years ago, Soccer Express recently moved into their new digs on Blue Mountain Street with a lot more space and great visibility from the Lougheed and Trans Canada Highways. The retail location is, of course, open to the public but that is only a part of the operation – they also have a warehouse and shipping location that does print and production as well that is also located in Coquitlam on Hartley Street. The retail location serves thousands of customers and clubs while the warehouse location services thousands more via a robust online sales program.

For workout gear, practice jerseys or that ‘must have’ collectible Manchester jersey, the retail shop has got you covered. If you need new soccer boots, Soccer Express has more choices and colours than a bag of Skittles. Also present are shorts, shin pads, balls, specialty goalie gear – well, you get the picture, everything you may need to play soccer…everything…literally. They also have a selection of Whitecaps FC gear that caught my eye, including jerseys, T-shirts and golf shirts, which means I’ll be right in style next time I get to a game.

Another cool feature at Soccer Express is that you are able to ‘demo’ your new soccer boots in the ‘demo cage’ that is set up with turf and a net in the far corner of the store, guaranteeing you get the right fit and feel for your feet (without harming innocent by-standers).

A large part of Soccer Express is their team sales and service that help clubs choose the right equipment and fabrics for their team uniforms as well as providing all the customization to really make the team look good as they take to the field.

It’s worth a trip to check out the new store and have a wander through all the gear if you are at all interested in soccer and, of course, if you’re looking to pick up some new gear, you’d be hard-pressed to find a greater selection. Plus, it’s great to see a business that is born and bred in Coquitlam grow and stay in the area.
