Join Latincouver for Noche Latina at a Vancouver Whitecaps Match

Comments 69 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Latincouver, who brought you the fantastic Carnaval del Sol this past weekend on Granville Street downtown, is hosting Noche Latina with the Vancouver Whitecaps this coming Sunday, July 14, 2013.


Noche Latina is a celebration of Vancouver’s Latin American culture that will bring music and even more excitement to the Whitecaps’ match against Chicago. Enjoy Mariachi del Sol before the game and a ticket discount when you book through Latincouver at this link (or by contacting Emilio Ekuba at (778)330-1379 or eekuba[at]

John and I have been season ticket holders for the last two years and Whitecaps matches have become our staple “date night”. They’re affordable, packed with action, lively, and it feels pretty amazing to get behind your local club and its roster of international talent.

For Noche Latina all soccer lovers and fans are encouraged to wear the colours of their favourite team and bring flags of their home country to the match to brighten up the stands. You could even fly some Latin American colours in honour of Camilo Sanvezzo (Brazil) and Johnny Leveron (Honduras) of Whitecaps FC.

If you would like to attend this match, I have a pair of tickets to give away. Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment on this post (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win tickets to @WhitecapsFC Noche Latina from @latincouver + @Miss604

I will draw one winner at random from all entries at 9:00am on Friday, July 12, 2013. While Carnaval del Sol is over for another year, follow Latincouver on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to learn more about their activities and initiatives throughout the year.

Update The winner is Denise!
