This morning Major League Soccer (“MLS”) revealed the 2017 schedule for its 22 teams, which includes the lineup of matches for Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
I’ve highlighted a few matches against our Canadian and Cascadian rivals, and the reigning MLS champions, that are bound to have an electric atmosphere and great competition:

Just as MLS has done for the World Cup since 2010 and the 2016 Copa America Centenario, the 2017 schedule will include a break for the CONCACAF Gold Cup group stage for the first time. Group stage matches for the CONCACAF Gold Cup will be played from July 7 through July 17.
The schedule for the 2017 Canadian Championship will be announced at a later date.
The regular MLS season kicks off at BC Place on March 5th when the Whitecaps take on Philadelphia Union. Follow Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Twitter and Facebook for more information about the schedule and single game ticket purchases which will be available in February.
