Vancouver Whitecaps History
The Vancouver Whitecaps were the seventeenth team incorporated into Major
League Soccer (MLS) in 2009. Vancouver Whitecaps tickets quickly become the
hottest ticket in town, as 5,000 season-ticket reservations were sold within a 48-
In fact, the team sold 15,500 total season tickets in their first year! This team was
actually the third to adopt the name “Vancouver Whitecaps”, as previous versions of
soccer teams had shared the same name at one point, the first being the Vancouver
Whitecaps of the former North American Soccer League, which disbanded in 1984.
The current team is headed by CEO Paul Barber, a former leading executive of the
Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. After a rough initial season that saw them win
only one game, Vancouver Whitecaps tickets are now a valuable commodity.
The team colors pay homage to the teams’ geographical location in British
Columbia, Canada. The navy blue in their uniform is indicative of the maritime legacy
surrounding the city of Vancouver, while the lighter blue is a nod to the reflections
of the white-capped North Shore Mountains nearby. A silver trim pays homage to a
former version of the teams’ championship season of 1974. Those lucky enough to
be holders of Vancouver Whitecaps tickets will be watching their beloved team play
in BC Place Stadium, their current home field. The current squad is led by head coach
Martin Rennie, an able coach with strong soccer coaching experience. It is his job to
keep the demand for Vancouver Whitecaps tickets as strong as it is, calling on his
experiences gained while in Scotland.
BC Stadium Place and the Fans
BC Stadium Place, the site of their home games, has played host to the Vancouver
Whitecaps since renovations including the installation of a retractable roof were
finished in 2011. Recently, plans to build a new stadium for the team have been

Purchasers of Vancouver Whitecaps tickets will continue to see their team play in BC
Stadium Place for the foreseeable future. Fans who purchase Vancouver Whitecaps
tickets are some of the most loyal in the entire MLS. A group of supporters known
as “The Southside’s” has been in existence since 1999, having formed under the
previous version of the team. This group of loyal purchasers of Vancouver Whitecaps
tickets is named for their penchant of gathering in the beer garden at the south end
of the old Swangard Stadium, where the former Vancouver 86ers once played.
A group of rabid fans known as “La Doce”, translated in English as “the twelfth
player”, formed in the days when the team played at Empire Field. They are known
for their penchant for long fight songs with a heavy, constant drum beat with a Latin
style. These consistent purchasers of Vancouver Whitecaps tickets are very vocal
when the team is playing one of their hated arch rivals, such as the Seattle Sounders
or Portland Timber soccer clubs. Other rivalries of note include the teams in Toronto
