Soccer, or football, puts its emphasis on the human foot, largely to keep it safe now that delinquent hands are using real rocks, paper, and scissors in their games. Watch feet avoid falling in with a bad crowd with this GrouponLive deal to see Vancouver Whitecaps FC play Toronto FC at BC Place. For $70, you get a game-day package for two on Wednesday, May 16, at 7 p.m. (a $108 total value, including all fees). The package includes the following:
- Two tickets in aqua-section seating (a $39 value each, including all fees)
- One souvenir t-shirt (a $30 value). Choose from small, medium, or large sizes.
Underneath the retractable roof at BC Place, Whitecaps FC dribble away from MLS play and into the first leg of the final round of the Amway Canadian Championship, seeking revenge after losing to Toronto FC in last year's title matches. After leading the club in goals during his debut season in 2011, striker Camilo Sanvezzo continues to spearhead the 'Caps offense alongside newcomer Sébastien Le Toux, who has scored at least 11 goals in each of the last two seasons. Grass stains and capsized opponents pile up on the field as 'Caps fans scout the fleet-footed action from aqua-section seats, which, from their location behind the nets, enable spectators to witness keepers divert shots with lightning-quick reflexes or by waving their arms to the left really fast.
Now in its fifth year, the Amway Canadian Championship awards its winner the Voyageur’s Cup and the honour to either fill that Cup with cookies or represent Canada in the 2012–13 CONCACAF Champions League. BC Place adds to the festive vibes by surrounding visitors with state-of-the-art luxuries, including a retractable roof and four-sided HD video board.
