Whitecaps FC are honoured to have Sierra Richardson as Kid Captain of the club's 2023 home opener against Real Salt Lake. Saturday’s presentation will be alongside Rain City Brigade supporters group.
Sierra is eight-years-old, loves watching and being involved with soccer, and is Spike’s number one fan! Sierra was born seven weeks early with down syndrome and primarily communicates via American Sign Language (ASL) due to a respiratory issue. At four-months-old, Sierra was nearly lost to a respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), if not for the speedy action of the Fraser Lake Ambulance. Today, Sierra uses music as a positive outlet in her learning. Please join us in welcoming Sierra to the match!
