Vancouver Whitecaps FC is a Canadian soccer club in Vancouver, British Columbia. The club was moved up to the USSF Division 1 after the ownership group of Greg Kerfoot, Steve Luczo, Jeff Mallett, and Steve Nash was awarded a Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise to play in Vancouver.[1] Whitecaps FC began playing competitive soccer in the 2011 season, joining the Western Conference of MLS. It plays its home games at BC Place. The current Whitecaps FC is the third soccer team from Vancouver to bear the Whitecaps name. The tradition was started by Vancouver's North American Soccer League team in 1974, and continued by the city's Canadian Soccer League and United Soccer Leagues side, formed in 1986.[2] The current iteration named Whitecaps FC played its first MLS game on March 19, 2011, a 4–2 victory against Toronto FC.[3] French striker Éric Hassli scored the first goal in Whitecaps FC history.[4]

As of February 24, 2014, four goalkeepers and fifty-two outfield players have participated in at least one MLS regular season match for Whitecaps FC. Brazilian striker Camilo Sanvezzo leads the club in both all-time MLS appearances (102) and all-time MLS goals (43). Three goalkeepers and forty-three outfield players have participated in at least one Voyageurs Cup or Canadian Championship match. Camilo Sanvezzo is also the MLS club's all-time leading goal scorer in Voyageurs Cup play, with four goals. One goalkeeper and thirteen outfield players participated in the only MLS Cup Playoffs match in the MLS Whitecaps FC history. Jamaican striker Darren Mattocks scored the lone Whitecaps FC goal in that match, a 2–1 loss against Los Angeles Galaxy in the knockout round of the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs.[5] The MLS version of Whitecaps FC have never participated in the CONCACAF Champions League. This list does not include statistics from exhibition matches.
