The first-ever club announced in the Evergreen Premier League back in the summer and fall of 2013 was Bellingham United FC. The “Hammers” came over from the Pacific Coast Soccer League, now a Canadian-only enterprise. BUFC are seen as leaders in community involvement, fan support and running a semi-pro operation.
This Sunday July 31 the Hammers host the Seattle Stars at 3 PM at Civic Stadium in Bellingham. A win for United would clinch their highest-ever finish in the EPLWA. They finished second in the PCSL in 2013.
