Away Tickets for Portland – April 22

As you are all aware, the Vancouver Southsiders are not organizing any bus trips to the United States this year due to increasingly difficult and unpredictable conditions at US border crossings. We remain firm in our commitment to standing in solidarity with our members who cannot enter the US with the same ease as others.

That said, we have retained our ticket allocations for these important matches so that members who still wish to travel can do so on their own. Tickets for the Saturday April 22 game in Portland are now available in the Southsiders members app. Click here to log in.

Tickets are $60 Canadian plus online transaction fees. Limit 4 per member. Sale ends March 19.

 

We also wish to remind our members of our request to leave your Southsiders scarves at home. We ask you to do this out of respect for your fellow members who are unable to travel with you due to changes to US entry policies and screening practices. Please wear a Whitecaps or Cascadia scarf instead.

If you have any further questions, please contact Peter at travel@vancouversouthsiders.ca

TUNE IN: “Match Days With @Miss604”

We are pleased to announce that Western Canada’s most prolific blogger will be taking over our social media channels during select home games this season.

Rebecca Bollwitt, who is known to pretty much everyone in British Columbia with a mobile device as @Miss604, will be handed the match day keys to our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts from time to time to bring you Whitecaps games and Southsiders atmosphere from her point of view. She has been an active member in the Southsiders community for a number of years now, and we are absolutely thrilled to have her on board in this capacity.

You can read about Rebecca’s incredible career by clicking here.

She recently received top honours for her blog and Twitter from the WestEnder’s 2017 “Best Of The City” awards. If you think the Whitecaps have a respectable trophy case, you should check out Rebecca’s many, many, many accolades for her work across several different social media platforms.

Our first session of Match Days With @Miss604 goes down tonight for our Champions League match against the New York Red Bulls. We hope you enjoy this little experiment of ours, and your feedback is always appreciated: media@vancouversouthsiders.ca
