Two home matches for Whitecaps fans to look forward to this weekend for the first time since the new USL side came into being. A busy weekend, a packed weekend and AFTN has you covered with it all.
It’s a battle of West v East at BC Place on Saturday evening when DC United come to Vancouver. We take a look ahead to the game, the key players and what line-up we might see the ‘Caps going with. Will DC attack or defend? How can you leave Darren Mattocks out? Will the wee winger Cristian Techera be on from the start?
We get the thoughts of Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson and hear from Vancouver players Russell Teibert, Pedro Morales and Mauro Rosales, along with DC United defender Taylor Kemp.
With Vancouver’s defensive spine being a key component to their early season success, we have an in-depth chat with one of the main factors behind that, Argentine defensive midfielder Matias Laba, about him finally being a fully fledged Whitecaps, the season so far and what lies ahead.
Our popular “Teammates” section returns and we bring you our first WFC2 one, with Residency alumni and Canadian international, Jackson Farmer. If you’re still unfamiliar with some of the USL squad, Jackson’s home truths will put you right!
And there’s still time to look ahead to the USL Cascadian derby this weekend as Sounders 2 come to UBC to take on WFC2 on Sunday.
