Whitecaps FC Pride Scarf and Pride Nightby
Yesterday was the International Day Against Homophobia and last year, Vancouver Whitecaps FC participated by changing their online profile images to rainbow logos. This year, they took it up another notch and released a rainbow scarf for everyone to show their support along with the team.
You can purchase the Pride Scarf online for a limited time and also at the next home match on May 24th at BC Place. $10 from each scarf sold will be donated to You Can Play, which promotes respect for all athletes:
You Can Play is dedicated to ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, without regard to sexual orientation. The organization works to guarantee that athletes are given a fair opportunity to compete, judged by other athletes and fans alike, only by what they contribute to the sport or their team’s success.
You Can Play seeks to challenge the culture of locker rooms and spectator areas by focusing only on an athlete’s skills, work ethic and competitive spirit.
In addition to Pride Scarf sales, Vancouver Whitecaps FC will celebrate Pride Night at the July 27th match against FC Dallas at BC Place.
The atmosphere at matches is always great, John and I are season ticket holders in the Southsiders supporter section, and when there’s a fantastic cause to support it just gets amped up.
Thanks to Whitecaps FC, I have a pair of tickets to give away for the July 27th Pride Night match along with a pair of Pride Scarves. Here’s how you can enter to win:

I will draw one winner at random from all entries at 5:00pm on Friday, May 23, 2014. Follow Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for news and updates from the club.
Update The winner is Chad Nehring!
