As the Vancouver Canucks quickly approach the playoffs, leading their Division, Conference as well as the League, many are wondering if this is their year to go all the way! While Vancouverites are proud of our league-leading Canucks, we also have a new sport and team to set our sights upon with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
This past weekend, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC debuted in Major League Soccer with a 4 – 2 win against Canadian rivals the Toronto FC. Although the day began with an ominous tone set by typical Vancouver showers, the clouds parted in the early afternoon as a sold out crowd of 22, 592 dressed all in white cheered their team to victory at Empire Field. We hope that this is only the beginning of good things to come for our Whitecaps as Vancouver definitely has room for both the National Hockey League and Major League Soccer.
Next Game for the Whitecaps: March 26, 2011 vs Philadelphia Union
Next Home Game: April 2, 2011 vs Sporting Kansas City
