VANCOUVER, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today announced the grand prize winner of its Score the First Goal on Bell Pitch downtown contest. Branden Tomash of Vancouver, BC will make history in front of thousands of Vancouver Whitecaps FC fans on October 2 when he kicks the goal into the opponent's net on Bell Pitch at BC Place during the pre-match ceremony captured live on TSN.

"I can't believe I won!" said 15-year old Branden. "I've played soccer for years, but never dreamed I would be the person who would score the first goal on Bell Pitch at a Whitecaps match. I can't wait to step onto the new pitch in front of the fans and represent my soccer team, the Grandview Legion Football Club."

Branden was selected from thousands of entries. Fifty secondary prize winners were also selected and will receive a pair of tickets to watch the Whitecaps' inaugural match versus Portland Timbers on the new pitch.
