It would be an understatement to say that Pierce Lang has been around soccer for the majority of his life. The sport has been his life for as long as he can remember.
His sister, Kara, is known as one of the greatest women to ever lace up a pair of cleats for Canada, but Pierce’s true obsession for the sport comes from his mom.
Although he credits his dad, Brian, with a lot of the soccer parent duties growing up – including taking him often to practice – Pierce got his passion from his mom, Moya Lang.
“My mom was a pretty big influence in our lives,” said Pierce. “That’s where the real love of the game came from.”
His love of the game will bring him to the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 this summer in Toronto where games will be played out of the National Soccer Stadium starting on August 5th.
Now studying Broadcast Journalism at Sheridan College in his hometown of Oakville, ON, Pierce is relishing at the opportunity to work on his craft as a member of the media and broadcast volunteer team.
