Whitecaps FC Development Squad to play in SK Summer Soccer Series

VANCOUVER, BC – The Whitecaps FC Development Squad will be heading to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan this summer to play in the SK Summer Soccer Series.
 
Head coach Nick Dasovic will lead his ‘Caps side into the Prairies to face the SK Selects on Thursday, July 25 at SMF Field in Saskatoon.
 
The July fixture will provide the next test for the team following a June trip to South Korea to face Daejeon Citizen FC and Suwon Samsung Blue Wings.
 
“We are really excited for the trip out to Saskatchewan in July,” said Dasovic. “Facing the SK Selects will be a great challenge for our team. We also can’t wait to connect with members of our BMO Saskatchewan Academy, some of whom may one day go on to professional careers at our club like Thomas Hasal and Brett Levis. We’re looking forward to a fantastic atmosphere and environment at the match.”
 
“On behalf of the SK Summer Soccer Series, I would like to thank Vancouver Whitecaps FC for their support and commitment to the Series and coming to Saskatoon for what we anticipate will be an exciting match event showcasing some great soccer,” added Joe Belan, promoter of the SK Summer Soccer Series.
