Advanced ticket sales have already confirmed that this Saturday’s MLS match between The Vancouver Whitecaps FC and The L.A. Galaxy is going to have the largest crowd so far for the expansion club. Over 26,000 tickets have been sold already and their is just under 1,000 tickets remaining for this match at Empire Field.

Those lucky fans in attendance are going to be treated to an array of giveaways and promotions (and hopefully a rare Whitecaps victory)

Here is a layout of the planned celebrations for the game:

  • The first 2,000 fans through the gates will receive a BUDWEISER AND WHITECAPS FC BAG
  • 3:00PM to 3:30PM – Autograph signing with Whitecaps FC President Bob Lenarduzzi, Whitecaps FC alumni Carl Valentine as well as a few players from the current squad (no players names confirmed yet)
  • BC Hydro Family night with Youth Zone and Captains Kids Club
  • At halftime Budweiser will choose their Fan of the Match. One lucky fan will win TWO WHITECAPS FC JERSIES, TICKETS TO AN UPCOMING GAME & WHITECAPS FC SCARVES

History is on The Whitecaps side since the two previous meetings between the two clubs (albeit both exhibition matches) saw The Whitecaps win one game outright and get a draw in the other. Now the game counts for more than just marketing purposes, so let’s get behind our boys and cheer them onto another victory over the star-studded LA Galaxy.
You can still buy tickets for this marquee game at online at ticketmaster.ca/whitecaps or by phone at 1.855.6.GO-CAPS.
