VANCOUVER, BC – Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced on Tuesday that fewer than 500 tickets remain for Wednesday’s home match against Real Salt Lake, and fewer than 1,000 tickets remain for Saturday’s first ever home match against Orlando City SC.
Following Saturday’s match, Whitecaps FC will host English Premier League club and 2015 FA Cup finalists Crystal Palace FC in the Vancouver International Soccer Challenge on Tuesday, July 19 at BC Place.
“Following our best ever season in the stands in 2015, we continue to see support continue to grow,” said Whitecaps FC president Bob Lenarduzzi. “This will be another big week for our club with two important MLS matches, and a great opportunity to welcome new fans against Crystal Palace FC.”
Whitecaps FC have sold out all eight weekend home matches so far this season at the club’s regular season capacity of 22,120, with an expanded capacity of 27,038 against LA Galaxy on April 2.
Vancouver are currently in the sixth and final playoff position in the Western Conference with 25 points, tied with seventh place Portland Timbers and three points back of fifth place Sporting Kansas City, but with a game in hand. The ‘Caps could see the debuts of Canadian internationals David Edgar and Marcel de Jong in any of the three upcoming home matches, as well as the return of Japanese international striker Masato Kudo.
The Vancouver International Soccer Challenge will be the club’s first time hosting an English Premier League team since 2011, when the ‘Caps faced Manchester City at Empire Field. Manchester City would go on to win the EPL title that season.
Tuesday’s match will be the last home game for the ‘Caps until they host San Jose Earthquakes in their first ever Friday night home match on August 12.
