Following the opening day victory at home to Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC are back in action this Saturday against Eastern Conference outfit Columbus Crew with kickoff at 4:30 p.m. PT.

TICKETS: http://ow.ly/isTxT

Here are five reasons why you should make sure you have a ticket:

1. The Reo-Coker Revolution

Those in attendance at BC Place on Saturday witnessed an impressive debut from newcomer Nigel Reo-Coker in his 45-minute cameo. The experienced former English Premier League midfielder helped spark a very entertaining and attacking second half for the home side, thrilling fans with a fast-paced match full of chances for the men in white. With a game under his belt, the Englishman will be sure to play a key role against Columbus Crew on Saturday.

2. Higuaín Brothers: From Old Trafford to BC Place

Did you watch the Real Madrid-Manchester United match on Tuesday? Did you see Cristiano Ronaldo's winning goal? Well, that was assisted by Gonzalo Higuaín, and his brother Federico who plays for Columbus ...he's pretty good too.

Federico, the elder Higuaín brother, started 2013 as he finished 2012. He scored with a sweet long-range strike to set the Crew on their way to an opening day 3-0 victory against Chivas USA. Now it appears that the 2012 MLS Newcomer of the Year is set for a big year in his first full season in MLS. Saturday’s match will be your only opportunity to see the Argentinean star at BC Place this season.

3. Tifo-rrific atmosphere

Saturday’s opening day win against Toronto saw Curva Collective unveil an impressive new tifo, while the Southsiders also unfurled a banner of their own. Will the 'Caps supporters have something new up their sleeves?

It's sure to be another electric atmosphere at BC Place, come down and be a part of it all.



4. Promise of goals

While the opening match saw only a single goal, 2013 still promises to be a big attacking year for the 'Caps. New options like Daigo Kobayashi, Kekuta Manneh and Erik Hurtado showed glimpses of their ability to excite fans, and now that they're more familiar with their surroundings we can expect plenty more cheers to come their way.

5. King Koffie

Nominated for MLS Goal of the Week after the first weekend and included in the MLS Fantasy Dream Team, Canada’s newest resident midfield dynamo has been Vancouver’s best kept secret up until this point. But the secret is no more, Koffie is shaping to have another breakout year for the Blue and White that should cement his place as one of the best young talents in the league.
