Historical Moments:

2011: On March 19, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, a reincarnated team from the NASL and lower divisions in North American Soccer, played their inaugural match at Empire Field against Toronto FC, which also happened to be the first-ever MLS game between two Canadian clubs. In this match, the Whitecaps would beat Toronto 4-2. But that would be the only win they would record until mid-June and the team would badly struggle as they sat in last place for virtually the entire season and ended with a 6-10-18 record. In October, the club left Empire Field for BC Place, the stadium renovated after the 2010 Winter Olympics for them and the British Columbia Lions.

2012: After a respectable 5-2-2 start to their second season, the Whitecaps would have difficulty for most of the rest of the season with injuries and roster turnover. At the end of the year, the club won only one of its last nine matches to finish at 11-13-10, but it was good enough to clinch a spot in the West's knockout game. In that game against the Galaxy in LA, Darren Mattocks scored for the Whitecaps in the 3rd minute and the score stood that way for a while as fans thought of a huge upset. But Mike Magee and Landon Donovan scored midway through the second half to snatch the victory away from the Whitecaps.
