Vancouver Whitecaps TicketsThe Vancouver Whitecaps is one of the premier soccer clubs in all of Canada. Long before it joined the MLS in 2011, Vancouver was a key member of the North American Soccer League between 1974 and 1984. It became the city’s first professional sports team to win a major North American championship in 1979 with a victory over the Tampa Bay Rowdies. After the dissolution of the NASL, the club joined the Canadian Soccer League and won four straight championships between 1988 and 1991. During this stretch, it set a new record for North American professional teams by going 46 consecutive matches without a defeat. A year later, Vancouver found a new home in the American Professional Soccer League (later absorbed by the United Soccer League) with which it won two more championships in 2006 and 2008. Vancouver is also a perennial favorite at the Canadian Championship. After finishing as runner-up several times, it won the 2015 championship with a victory over Montreal.
