Viva Whitecaps FC!
In collaboration with Latincouver and Comunidad Mexicana en Vancouver, Whitecaps FC invite all fans to join us for “Noche Latina” on Saturday, July 12 when the ‘Caps host Chivas USA at BC Place. Celebrate Whitecaps FC’s influx of South American talent while supporting the lower mainland’s Latino community!
As part of the celebrations, Mariachi Del Sol will entertain fans from 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at ‘Caps Kickoff on Terry Fox Plaza so make sure to arrive early to take in the festivities! Fans are also invited to join the “Latin Quarter” in Sections 228 and 229, where we’ll bring a little Latin flavour to BC Place.
There will be plenty of Latin flavour on the pitch as well.
The ‘Caps have several Latin Americans on their roster this season, including Designated Player Pedro Morales. Morales, who hails from Hualpén, Chile, leads Vancouver with six goals and six assists this season and has served as team captain in the last three matches.
Morales is joined by Argentine midfielder Matías Laba, Uruguyans Sebastián Fernández and Nicolás Mezquida, and Honduran defender Johnny Leverón – not to mention striker Omar Salgado, a dual American and Mexican citizen.
Chivas USA, or Los Rojiblancos, also have a strong Latin American influence – headlined by MLS Golden Boot contender Erick Torres, a native of Guadalajara, Mexico.
The red-hot striker found the back of the net against Vancouver on March 16, when the Western Conference rivals played to a 1-1 draw in California.
Can the ‘Caps keep Torres in check this time around?
Kickoff for Saturday’s match is set for 7 p.m. PT at BC Place. Tickets are still available at whitecapsfc.com/tickets.
