Whitecaps FC congratulate Manchester City FC on making this year's English FA Cup final

Vancouver Whitecaps FC congratulate Manchester City FC for reaching their first English FA Cup final since 1981 after an eventful 1-0 semifinal win over arch-rivals Manchester United FC on Saturday.

Yaya Toure's second-half strike at Wembley Stadium was enough to take Roberto Mancini's side to the final, where they will meet the winner of Sunday's semifinal between Bolton Wanderers FC and Stoke City FC.

On July 18, Whitecaps FC will host English Premier League giants Manchester City FC on Bell Pitch at Empire Field at 7 p.m. PT as part of the 2011 World Football Challenge. Tickets for the international match, valued at $60 each, will be provided as a special bonus to all season ticket holders that have signed up before April 30. Whitecaps FC season tickets are available at a pro-rated price - starting at $268 - through the Whitecaps FC office at 604.669.9283 or online at whitecapsfc.com/season-tickets.

Additional match information, including individual match ticket availability, will be announced at a later date. Visit whitecapsfc.com/bonusmatch for more information.
