Episode 201 – The AFTN Soccer Show (A Place To Call Home with guests Bob Lenarduzzi and Greg Anderson)

Vancouver Whitecaps finally have a place to call home.

The National Soccer Development Centre up at UBC is finally finished. It’s felt like a long time coming but the end result has been worth with the wait, with the ‘Caps now having a state of the art training facility.

We chat with Whitecaps President Bobby Lenarduzzi about what the facility means to the club and whether it’s likely to attract players and touring teams to Vancouver.

We also sit down with Whitecaps Vice-President of Soccer Operations, Greg Anderson about the new training centre, having all the teams under the one roof, future plans, and more.

On the pitch, the ‘Caps are back in action against FC Dallas this weekend. We look ahead to the match, and hear from head coach Oscar Pareja and defender Ryan Hollingshead.

It’s also been a busy week for the Canadian Men’s National team, with a 2-1 win over Curaçao, we chat about the match, the performance of Whitecaps players, and the future.

    I thought the most interesting comment here was from Ryan Hollingshead, when he said “We view Vancouver as some place we can get 3 points.” I understand players always being confident, but to me that said more about how other teams view travelling to Vancouver right now: that it’s not some place to be feared at all, and that in a league where road wins are rarer, Vancouver is a place to get points.
