Former Whitecaps FC Residency player Travis Selje will be honoured during the match.

The 17-year-old, who passed away on Friday, May 5 after his vehicle was struck in a tragic car crash on Wednesday, May 3, was a part of the ‘Caps Residency program from 2012 to 2016.

A moment of silence will be held prior to kickoff, with Whitecaps FC players wearing armbands during the match in his memory.

Whitecaps FC encourage all attendees to join in standing up and remembering Travis Selje.
