Vancouver MLS Tickets going fast...
Ticket deposits for the 2011 Vancouver MLS franchise are going fast. At 4pm PT, the 'Caps had secured 4,750 deposits, closing in on the 5000 available. Add that to the current 2,200 season tickets holders and the Whitecaps will be at just over 7,000 MLS tickets gone. Just 4 days after the announcement, Vancouver is looking solid with regards to tickets.
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 around 20,000, with the ability to expand to the upper decks.
Fans wanting to get a deposit for 2011 can still get tickets here.
