Sounders Women and Whitecaps Women battle for the ball in the 2013 matchup (Jane G. Photography)
TUKWILA, Wash. – The Seattle Sounders Women and Vancouver Whitecaps Women rivalry will resume on May 16th at Starfire Sports Stadium. The location for this match was previously pending. Kickoff is set for 7:00pm.
While Vancouver is no longer in the W-League, the competition between these two teams is still very useful for the development of each team for their regular season.
“The Sounders Women and Whitecaps FC rivalry has been one of the strongest and longest standing within all of women’s soccer,” Sounders Women Executive Director, Jon Billings, said. “It’s great that we’ll be able to give our fans another dose of this heated rivalry.”
Vancouver Whitecaps FC Girls Elite head coach, Jesse Symons, said, “The Sounders vs. Whitecaps FC rivalry has so much history. Both clubs are providing great foundations for soccer in the Northwest and we are really excited to continue it May 16th in Seattle.”
Jesse Symons said about his team, “Players have played at a variety of colleges in NCAA division 1 and have represented Canada at the youth and senior national team levels. There is also a lot of experience with players having played at a variety of World Cups.”
This match will be the final exhibition match for the Sounders Women before kicking off the W-League regular season on May 23 in California.
