Vancouver Whitecaps celebrate pride at BC Place this weekend

May 22 2019, 9:08 pm

The Vancouver Whitecaps are getting an early start on Pride this year, announcing a number of creative plans for this Saturday’s match against FC Dallas.

Rainbows will fill BC Place, as the Whitecaps wear special Pride crested jerseys. The corner flags and nets will also be multi-coloured for the match.

Fans are encouraged to take part also, as each seat will come with a coloured sign to form a rainbow around the stadium.

The ‘Caps are hosting pre-game festivities on Terry Fox Plaza prior to the 4 pm kickoff, hosted by Conni Smudge beginning at 2:30 pm. The event include a drag show and lip sync performance, as well as a drag race on the pitch at halftime.

Members of Sher Vancouver — a non-profit society for LGBTQ South Asians and their friends, families, and allies — will be in attendance.

Fans can get Pride cresting on their own kits, as well as a special edition Pride scarf or warmup shirt. If you’re feeling hungry, you can eat a rainbow grilled cheese sandwich, available at Boom Kitchen in sections 210 and 244.
