The Vancouver Whitecaps are embracing the rain.
With snow piling up around town and disrupting people’s commutes, it makes sense doesn’t it? Rain has never been more popular.
The Whitecaps unveiled brand new primary jerseys for 2017 in front of season ticket holders at their annual season launch party at the Vogue Theatre on Monday.
The jersey is a pattern of triangles, representing rain.

Fans in attendance were given the opportunity to ask questions to head coach Carl Robinson, president Bob Lenarduzzi, as well as part-owners Jeff Mallett and Steve Nash. Overshadowing everyone though, was MLS commissioner Don Garber, who drew the ire of some fans.
