Cascadia Cup[edit]

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 continued in 2014.

The winner is determined through league matches between the sides, and the club with the best record against both sides wins the trophy. As a result, the Whitecaps played three matches each against Portland and Seattle, winning the trophy for the second year in a row with a record of three wins (two against Seattle, one vs Portland), two losses (both to Portland), and a single draw with the Seattle Sounders, for a total of 10 points.
