'Caps Chronicle: Whitecaps FC enter ‘Year of the Dragon’
WFC Daily returns! and news for Jan. 23



Kung Hei Fat Choi Vancouver Whitecaps FC fans! Today marks the beginning of both a new year for the Chinese Zodiac, as well as a new year of training for our men’s team with Whitecaps FC beginning their seven-week journey to MLS First Kick on March 10th.

2012 is known as the ‘Year of the Dragon’, the luckiest symbol in the Chinese Zodiac, and one player in particular who’s hoping for some good fortune is striker Etienne Barbara. The Maltese international – who was named North American Soccer League (NASL) MVP last season – is in camp with the ‘Caps aspiring to earn a contract.

Sacré Bleu!

Union trade All-Star Le Toux to Vancouver for allocation


In one of the most surprising moves of the offseason, All-Star forward Sébastien Le Toux was traded by the Philadelphia Union to the Vancouver Whitecaps on Tuesday in exchange for allocation money.

“Just got traded to Vancouver! Saddest day for me in my Philadelphia Union story,” Le Toux tweeted earlier Tuesday. “Still can't believe it.”

Le Toux glad for fresh start with Whitecaps,
feels wanted



CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – Maybe Sébastien Le Toux was happy to see a few familiar faces. Or maybe that grin was there because he knows he can start anew in Vancouver with the Whitecaps.

“I’m always happy,” he told reporters on Monday with a laugh after Vancouver drew with Seattle 1-1 in a preseason scrimmage. Indeed, he has reason to feel that way.

Philadelphia – and all of the well-documented reasons and reactions that came out of his trade from the Union to the Whitecaps – is a thing of the past. Le Toux, a forward who had two outstanding seasons with the Union after his first MLS campaign with the Seattle Sounders in their inaugural season, sounds excited to have returned to the West Coast.

“It’s always great to be a part of a new team,” Le Toux said. “So far, it’s been great. My new teammates welcomed me very well and I feel comfortable to play here and the new coaching staff is great, too.”

Valentine’s Day Video Love Letters

Tuesday was Valentine’s Day, a day where young and old come together to celebrate love. There are many ways to celebrate, such as long walks on the beach, candle light dinners, and candy hearts. We here at Whitecaps FC like those ideas, but were wondering what would be the best way to celebrate the most romantic holiday on the calendar?

On February 13, we sent a beautiful bouquet of blue and white flowers to Seattle Sounders FC, Montreal Impact, Portland Timbers, and LA Galaxy, and on Valentine's Day we delivered special video love letters, which you can see below.

Feel the love!

Whitecaps FC defeat Houston Dynamo 1-0
at the Disney Pro Soccer Classic



KISSIMMEE, FL - In their second match at the Disney Pro Soccer Classic in Florida, Vancouver Whitecaps FC (2W-0L-0D) defeated Major League Soccer rivals Houston Dynamo (0W-1L-1D) 1-0 on an overcast Sunday afternoon. Sunday's results guarantee that Vancouver will now play in next Saturday’s Disney Pro Soccer Classic final at 5 p.m. PT as Group One winners.

A first-half penalty by off-season acquisition Sebastien Le Toux gave the Blue and White their second win in three days at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Though they missed a second penalty opportunity before the break, Martin Rennie’s young side held on for another productive result, with the weekend victory making it three wins in a row for the ‘Caps this preseason.

Squad shows artistry
Second win secures spot in Disney Pro Soccer Classic final



The stars were out in full-force yesterday at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, with top-honours going to silent-film 'The Artist'. Meanwhile, on the opposite coast, Whitecaps FC shone equally as bright while showing some of their own artistry in a 1-0 win against Houston Dynamo in Orlando, Florida. The result guarantees the 'Caps a spot in next Saturday’s Disney Pro Soccer Classic final at 5 p.m. PT.

Recap: Whitecaps outlast pesky TFC for Disney crown


ORLANDO, Fla. – The Vancouver Whitecaps left town with the title in the Disney Pro Soccer Classic on Saturday night, but hoisting the trophy turned out to be a far tougher task than most at the tournament expected.

Midfielder Camilo Sanvezzo scored in the 10th minute and goalkeeper Joe Cannon came up big when he had to, but Toronto FC’s makeshift team of trialists and reserve players gave the first-string Whitecaps as much as they could handle in a 1-0 decision in the championship.

Canadian rivalry revisited between Montreal and Vancouver

Impact and Whitecaps go way back


Under the big lights at B.C. Place, the Montreal Impact will play its first ever game in Major League Soccer against the Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday (6 pm ET; TSN/RDS in Canada, MLS Live in US), a game that will be filled with pressure and excitement.

These two teams share a rich Canadian rivalry in North American soccer, having played some big games over that time. We take a look back at some of the recent matchups between the teams from La Belle Province and Beautiful British Columbia.

Road Glory
Whitecaps FC win first MLS away match; DeMerit first 'Caps goal



CARSON, CA - In their first away match of the 2012 Major League Soccer season, Vancouver Whitecaps FC (2W-0L-0D) defeated Western Conference rivals Chivas USA (0W-2L-0D) 1-0 on Saturday evening.

Captain Jay DeMerit was the hero for the Blue and White, as his second-half header was not only his first goal in MLS, it earned Vancouver their first-ever away victory in the league on a cool and wet St. Patrick’s Day evening in Carson, California. Though they were tested at times by their hosts at The Home Depot Center, Martin Rennie’s side earned a second-straight clean sheet and a morale-boosting road result.
