Ticket deposits for the 2011 Vancouver MLS franchise are going fast, in fact, they are completely gone. The Caps have sold out of the 5,000 available in a little less than 48 hours.
According to the Vancouver Whitecaps, Canada's other MLS franchise, Toronto FC, was announced back on May 11, 2006. On August 25, 2006 they announced that they had sold 3,000 season ticket deposits and at the start of 2007 they were at 7,000.
The seating configuration for BC Place has yet to be determined, but it's expected that the Lower Bowl will hold approximately 20,000, with the ability to expand to the upper decks.
