Major League Soccer Fans score big with multi-year partnership between BCAA and Vancouver Whitecaps FC

Soccer fans guaranteed 30 per cent off single match tickets for the next three years

BURNABY, BC, Feb. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - BCAA and Vancouver Whitecaps FC of Major League Soccer (MLS) are excited to team up for a multi-year partnership and offer soccer fans more savings on Whitecaps FC home matches. The new partnership between BCAA and Vancouver Whitecaps FC, two beloved B.C. brands deeply rooted in their communities, gives fans the best deal on tickets and is expected to draw-in even more spectators from across the province.

"BCAA has hundreds of thousands of Members throughout B.C. and this partnership  gives soccer fans and families even better opportunity to attend home matches and experience world-class Major League Soccer," says BCAA's Senior Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer, Brent Cuthbertson. "BCAA has been serving British Columbians for over 108 years, always looking for ways to ensure Membership is rewarding, and we're excited to offer the biggest discount around, and be the only Whitecaps FC partner to provide advance access privileges to our Members."

As part of the three-year partnership, BCAA Members receive 30 per cent off regular season single match home tickets. Alternatively, unique to the partnership is front-of-the-line experiences in which BCAA Members who are also 'Caps Club Members can choose to take advantage of exclusive advance access to regular season single match home tickets for any available seat in any section, two days before the general public—the earliest advance on tickets available (30% discount does not apply).

To celebrate the new partnership, all BCAA Members will have exclusive early access to regular season single match home tickets two days before the general public as well this year.

'Caps Club Members with a BCAA Membership card also receive advance access to tickets for special events such as the Season Launch Party and sought-after games including MLS Playoffs, MLS Cup and the Amway Canadian Championships before other season ticket holders and the general public.

"We're thrilled to welcome BCAA as our newest partner," says Whitecaps FC COO, Rachel Lewis. "They are an organization with a tremendous reputation of serving its members throughout British Columbia, so we're excited to connect them with our 'Caps Club membership program."

During home matches, Vancouver Whitecaps FC fans will have the opportunity to win great prizes from BCAA. Members are encouraged to always carry their BCAA Membership card in their wallet or have it loaded into the BCAA App on their phones for on-site surprises at the matches.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC now joins the ranks of BCAA's great value offers such as the PNE and WHL games in B.C. which give British Columbians more opportunity to experience the best of B.C. events.
