Taken from Metroblogging Vancouver [mbv]:
The most famous name in soccer ball, otherwise known as football, will be coming to Vancouver in October. Thank the Vancouver Whitecaps for the media circus that will land in Vancouver like a dark tornado in Vancouver because by setting up an October third friendly match with the Los Angeles Galaxy who are the David Beckham's new team. Details are on the Whitecaps official site [wcfc].
The game is being played at BC Place Stadium, to accommodate the fact that this will sell more tickets than the usual Whitecaps versus Seattle Sounders match, and tickets are included in Whitecaps season ticket packages. Thankfully that includes me. Want to get in on David Beckham and his Golden Balls arriving in Vancouver? Visit the Whitecaps site and take a look.
From the official site:
"We are thrilled to bring such a highly anticipated event to Vancouver this year," said Lenarduzzi. "The Galaxy boasts a star-studded roster which includes David Beckham - one of the most recognizable celebrities in the world. The match against the Galaxy will be the culmination of an amazing year of soccer in British Columbia, including the Whitecaps defence of both the men's and women's USL titles, and the FIFA U-20 World Cup in host cities Burnaby and Victoria."
