Surrey United Soccer was first formed in 1968 and had only six teams. With such a small Surrey population back then Surrey United covered all areas of Surrey except Guildford and Whalley. The club participated in the Westminster District and teams had to travel extensively to play other teams. Over the years the club had many different styles of uniforms but has now adopted its colours of red, black and white.
In the 1970's, Surrey United pioneered the first mini soccer program that is now one of the fastest growing aspects of youth soccer. In 1994, the club forged an affiliation with an adult organization and that subsequently blossomed into SUSC becoming the first fully integrated soccer club in British Columbia where a full range of soccer programs from minis to masters to players of both genders was offered. In fact, it was in 1997 that the club was granted approval to run a girls program which has been steadily growing.
Originally headquartered at Unwin Park, the club moved to Cloverdale Athletic Park and due to substantial fundraising activities at the club level was able to build a clubhouse at that location which is still the envy of most of the local soccer clubs. The club holds regular monthly meetings there during the soccer season. Everyone is welcome including coaches, assistant coaches, managers, parents and players aged 16 or older. Presently, Surrey United has a continually expanding membership in excess of 2,300 players from just over 400 players in 1994.
