The Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2015 season opener is just days away, and we’re giving one lucky reader the chance to be in BC Place to cheer on the blue and white as they begin their fifth season in the MLS against Toronto FC!
A new addition for the upcoming season is the official Whitecaps FC Gastown Store (375 Water Street, Vancouver) where you can get merchandise like the new kit. Just launched, the 2015 primary kit will be available for sale on Tuesday.
With head coach Carl Robinson and his staff signed to multi-year contract extensions as well as a record 22 players from the 2014 season returning, stability is a key for the ‘Caps this season.
The biggest addition for the 2015 team came on Christmas Eve when the ‘Caps acquired striker Octavio Rivero. Since then, Diego Rodriguez and Pa-Modou Kah have joined the backline alongside hometown midfielder Ben Mckendry, draft pick Tim Parker and highly rated Honduran youngster Deybi Flores.
