VANCOUVER, BC – Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced on Wednesday that fewer than 500 tickets remain available for Saturday’s home match against Chicago Fire. Kickoff at BC Place is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PT. For more information on tickets visit whitecapsfc.com/tickets.
Whitecaps FC will look to build off of an eventful month of June that featured wins in Colorado and at home to Orlando, and a defeat in Philadelphia. It was a big month for individual accolades. Alphonso Davies won MLS Player of the Week and was named to the 2018 MLS All-Star roster, while Kendall Waston became the first active player from the club to both play and score at the FIFA World Cup.
The ‘Caps will play their second of seven matches in July against a surging Chicago side. The Fire come to Vancouver unbeaten in their past five MLS matches, including a 3-2 comeback win over New York City FC this past Saturday. The ‘Caps will need to keep their eyes on Chicago central midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger and winger Aleksander Katai. Schweinsteiger, who won the last FIFA World Cup with Germany in 2014, leads the team with five assists. Katai, a Serbian international, has scored a team-high eight goals, with six coming in the past seven matches.
Following Saturday’s match, the Blue and White will play three road matches in eight days before wrapping up the month with a pair of battles at BC Place.
