If you’ve ever wanted to be a mascot, now is your chance.

The Langford-based Pacific FC announced Tuesday that it is searching for a new starfish mascot — an oversized purple starfish named Stewie — for the 2022 season.

Stewie made its debut when the Pacific FC launched in 2019 and has become a popular sight at the club’s home games at Starlight Stadium.

“Stewie is an important part of our club’s culture and a real crowd favourite for our younger fans,” said Katie Hamilton, in-stadium host with Pacific FC. “These are truly big shoes to fill, and we are excited to find the right person.”

“We are looking for a real person who will complement our team and have a positive attitude.”

According to the club, a successful Stewie candidate is someone who is energetic, motivated, an “enthusiastic performer” who will be available for all home games plus community outreach events throughout Vancouver Island.

“The mascot must be a positive team player that is self-motivated, creative, outgoing and loves interacting with people in the community,” the club says.

The ideal Stewie the Starfish, according to the club, ranges in height from 5-foot-8 to 6-foot-1.

“Mascot duties can be demanding; Stewie visits with countless fans sometimes in challenging temperatures. Strong non-verbal skills, such as high-fives and dance moves, are encouraged,” the club says.

Applicants must be 18-years or older and legally able to work in Canada.

Resumes can be submitted to [email protected].
