Vancouver Whitecaps FC Details
MLS followers may state that Vancouver fans have waited a long time for their soccer club to make big-league waves. But in truth, the Whitecaps have been making history long before Major League Soccer existed.
It was 1976 when the 'Caps made their first playoff appearance in the North American Soccer League. (Their opponents, the Seattle Sounders, are well-familiar to MLS fans.) Three years later, the Vancouver Whitecaps became the city's first professional sports team to win a major North American Championship by defeating the Tampa Bay Rowdies. Almost 100,000 people lined Vancouver's Robson Street for a celebratory parade.
In 1983, Vancouver faced Seattle again in the Soccer Bowl championship match at BC Place Stadium. The NASL would dissolve just one year later, but the Whitecaps surfaced again in 1986 as the "86ers," members of the Canadian Soccer League. The Vancouver 86ers quickly rose to the top of the CSL, winning four-straight championship titles. At one point, the club went 46 consecutive matches without losing, setting more records in the process.
The club's name was changed back to "The Whitecaps" by popular demand after Y2K, but it took almost another decade for an MLS bid to become reality. Major League Soccer commissioner Don Garber announced in 2009 that Vancouver would become the 17th franchise to take the MLS pitch.
And before the Whitecaps played their first match in MLS, the ownership group worked to acquire top-end talent for both its business operations and the technical (soccer) side of the club. Executives from Premier League clubs, major corporations and some of the top domestic soccer franchises joined the Whitecaps to build what was, at the time, Canada’s second MLS team.
Canadian star Alphonso Davies was the Whitecaps’ marquee player before joining Bundesliga side Bayern Munich in 2018. The Whitecaps’ franchise record for goals is held by Brazilian forward Camilo, who was part of Vancouver’s early MLS teams and its first MLS Cup playoff appearance in 2012; the Whitecaps’ 2012 playoff appearances was the first by a Canadian club in league history.
