This contest follows the Red Dragons games with AFC Bournemouth on July 20 at Harder Stadium, in Santa Barbara, CA, and with Chelsea FC on July 24th at Levi’s Stadium, in Santa Clara, CA.

This contest has a special significance for Wrexham AFC owner Ryan Reynolds, who was himself born and raised in Vancouver, and is a long-time ’Caps supporter. Wrexham have shot to prominence globally since Reynolds and fellow Hollywood star Rob McElhenney purchased the club in 2020. The club has been featured in the immensely popular Emmy award-winning Welcome to Wrexham docu-series on FX. Founded in 1864, Wrexham is the oldest professional soccer club in Wales, and the third oldest in the world. With their proud Welsh support at their back, Wrexham have recently risen back up through the divisions and have just confirmed a second-successive promotion, which elevates them back to League One (the third tier of English football) next season. The club has a hugely supportive fanbase and is excited to return to North America for the second successive preseason.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC is the longest-running professional soccer club in Canada or the United States, celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. Originally established in 1974 in the former North American Soccer League, the ’Caps joined MLS as the seventeenth club in 2009. Since the debut season in 2011, Whitecaps FC has become an integral part of MLS, and gone on to win three Canadian Championships, the domestic cup for all Canadian professional and semi-professional clubs.

BC Place is the home of Vancouver Whitecaps FC, and the host of this match with Wrexham AFC. The largest multi-purpose venue in Western Canada, BC Place has been a centerpiece for the Province of British Columbia for more than four decades. The venue serves as a vibrant hub for sporting excellence, having hosted countless iconic events including FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015, the 2010 Winter Olympic Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies, nine Grey Cup Championships, and HSBC Canada Sevens. BC Place is set to host seven matches during FIFA World Cup 26, and is widely recognized as one of the premier sporting facilities in Canada.
