- Vancouver Whitecaps
For those who love tradition you can rest a little easier tonight. When Vancouver enters Major League Soccer in 2011 they will come in as their normal self, as the Vancouver Whitecaps.
“We are fully behind continuing the Whitecaps name,” said co-owner Jeff Mallett.
In fact they will keep the name in any league that they have a club in according to Mallett, even in the new breakaway league called the NASL.
The Whitecaps are also set to reveal an updated logo and uniforms next May as well.
My bet on this news means the club is looking quickly to get a kit sponsor for their new jerseys next spring before they enter MLS, similar to what Seattle did before they came in this past season.
Honestly I think its a great idea to keep the tradition alive here with the name. Seattle did it and from the looks of things Portland will do the same.
