If you take a look at your favourite Whitecaps FC player this August, and have eyes like a hawk, you might just see a familiar face: yours.
All this month, the Whitecaps FC limited edition jersey will feature the smiling faces of thousands of fans. As part of a Major League Soccer-wide initiative, season ticket holders and fans uploaded their pictures, chose their favourite number – or the number of their favourite player – and where on the number they’d like to be.
The result is jersey numbers filled with black-and-white collages of fan portraits. Available for purchase through online pre-order at the beginning of the year, a limited number of the jerseys will be available for purchase at merchandise stands at BC Place on match days throughout the month of August, and at Whitecaps FC’s official store in Gastown.
Any fans that uploaded their pictures were automatically included in a draw to win a jersey worn by ‘Caps players. The winners of these super limited jerseys will be announced in September.
