Whitecaps FC fans from Vancouver Island and the British Columbia Interior have two big reasons to get excited about Vancouver Whitecaps FC this week: a chance for a sneak peak at the new squad this weekend and an exclusive new offer for supporters from the 250 area code.
On Sunday, a wave of Whitecaps FC supporters will be descending on the University of Victoria’s Centennial Stadium to take in the ‘Caps preseason friendly against University of Victoria Vikes men’s soccer team in the provincial capital at 1 p.m. PT. With Round 2 just around the corner, this will be the first and only opportunity for BC soccer fans to get an up-close and personal look at new head coach Martin Rennie’s revitalized squad prior to the much anticipated season opener against Montreal Impact at BC Place on Saturday, March 10.
It should prove a historic day for soccer in British Columbia and Canada, as the meeting marks the first ever match between a Major League Soccer (MLS) side and a Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) team. The event is made even more notable with the UVic Vikes representing the best of Canadian university soccer, having just completed a championship season in 2011.
To show those from the 250 area code just how much we appreciate their support, the second reason for jubilation this week is because Whitecaps FC have created a special flex pack exclusively for ‘Caps fans living outside the Lower Mainland who are only able to attend a few matches this season.
