STAND BY ME: Whitecaps FC close out the 2021 regular season playing two of their final three matches in front of their supporters at home. Since returning to BC Place in August, the 'Caps have won six of seven in Vancouver. The final two home games include this Wednesday’s massive match against sixth place Minnesota United FC, as well as Sunday, November 7 against Cascadia rivals Seattle Sounders FC on Decision Day. Tickets for both matches are available at whitecapsfc.com/tickets.

FORM GUIDE: Since mid-July, the 'Caps have been one of the most in-form teams in the league posting a record of 9W-2L-8D for a total of 35 points, which is second only to the Supporters’ Shield winning New England Revolution over the past 19 matches. Vancouver will look to continue their impressive play as they push to make the playoffs.
