Canadian Championship[edit]

The club participated in the four-team Canadian Championship which includes FC Edmonton, Montreal Impact and Toronto FC. The champion of the tournament was awarded the Voyageurs Cup and qualified for the 2013–14 CONCACAF Champions League group stage. Vancouver lost in the finals to Montreal on the away goals rule.

Semi-finals[edit]

Finals[edit]

Cascadia Cup[edit]

See also: Cascadia Cup
Vancouver Whitecaps FC debut at BC Place on October 2 against Cascadia rivals and expansion cousins, Portland Timbers.

The Whitecaps have had a long-standing rivalry with the Pacific Northwest clubs Seattle Sounders FC and Portland Timbers, dating back to the 1970s when ancestry clubs of the same name played in the original and now-defunct North American Soccer League. The tri-member tournament will continue in 2013.

The winner is determined through league matches between the sides, and the club with the best record against both sides wins the trophy. The 2013 MLS season will see an unbalanced schedule due to an uneven number of teams with the addition of the Montreal Impact. As a result, the Whitecaps will play three matches each against Portland and Seattle. The odd number of matches means Vancouver will host the Timbers twice and Sounders once while visiting Seattle twice Portland once respectively.

Juan de Fuca Plate[edit]

The Juan de Fuca Plate is a supporter-sponsored competition for British Columbian clubs in the United Soccer Leagues Premier Development League (USL PDL), a semi-professional league with clubs in Canada, the United States, and the Caribbean.

Founded in 2012 by supporters of the Vancouver Whitecaps and Victoria Highlanders, the Juan de Fuca Plate is meant to spur interest across British Columbia in soccer at the semi-professional level, and to inspire good-natured rivalry between the competing cities. Standings in regular season games between all USL PDL teams in British Columbia count towards the championship. Every year, the winner will receive the Juan de Fuca Plate.

For the 2013 USL PDL season, teams competing for the Juan de Fuca Plate will be the Victoria Highlanders and the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency U-23 team. The first game of the 2013 Juan de Fuca Plate will take place May 17, 2013 at UBC Thunderbird Stadium in Vancouver, British Columbia. The first Juan de Fuca Plate match was on May 13, 2012 at Royal Athletic Park in Victoria, British Columbia between the Whitecaps U-23s and the Highlanders. The Plate was first awarded July 11 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, British Columbia to the victorious team, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23s[43]
