Here are a few things that fans can expect.
The first 2,000 fans to enter the gates at BC Place will receive a Whitecaps FC Pride mystery fanny pack.
The club has unveiled a special Whitecaps FC Pride logo which will be featured throughout the stadium and on the club’s social channels.
The logo was designed by local artist Christina Hryc, also known as Boots. Her style utilizes fluid line drawings on bold bright colourfield, often layered with floral and geometric pattern that seeks to emulate layers of graffiti with references to personal nostalgia, queer culture, and pop iconography. She has completed murals in the United States, Central America, Mexico, and Canada.
The ‘Caps pre-match street party is back at Terry Fox Plaza.
Enjoy live music, food & drink specials, giveaways, face painting and more.
