MLS announcement

July 26, 2008 at 6:48 pm | Posted in General Football, Vancouver Whitecaps, Whitecaps Waterfront Stadium | Leave a comment

What we have all expected has now happened.  The Caps will make their pitch to the MLS to get a team in the league. It has been a long haul to get to this spot but finally it is happening.  It was nice to see the political leaders present at the press conference.  Mayor Sullivan, Attourney General Oppal and Premier Campbell all threw their weight behind the effort.  This will send the right message that the team has support politically as well as financially.  It is my hope that this will also galvanize the Waterfront Stadium process and make the Federal Government take note that they can no longer sit on their hands in negotiations over port lands.  

I believe our bid will be accepted as we have the right ownership and a proven track record of success in soccer.  People in Vancouver and BC know soccer well, and participate in the game in large numbers.  If MLS wants another Toronto FC, they can have one right here in Vancouver BC.
