Whitecaps FC Make History By Entering MLS Playoffs

Though the Whitecaps lost their match against the Portland Timbers this Sunday by 0-1, they still managed to qualify to play in the 2012 Major League Soccer Playoffs, an honour no other Canadian team has yet to do!

Thanks to the 3-1 win the Seattle Sounders FC had against FC Dallas, a few laters after their match against the Timbers. A Dallas loss meant a spot in the playoffs for the Whitecaps, however if Dallas had won, the Whitecaps would have had to play against Real Salt Lake this coming Saturday, which is the last match in the regular season.

Though the Whitecaps got into the playoffs, it was a feeling that didn’t sit well with their coach, Martin Rennie, who claimed the Whitecaps had it in their own hands to get into the playoffs this Sunday.

Regardless, this is great news! Will you be purchasing tickets for any of the playoff matches?!
