For all those who want to scrutinize the Whitecaps and their ability to afford (or break) their 5-year lease at BC Place.... Day rates for BC Place rentals are right here: http://www.bcplacestadium.com/pdfs/spectatorevent1.pdf Let's say they go to 30,000 seats (lower bowl configuration).... Rental is $13,000 per match, or 15% of the gate, whichever is larger. So, let's assume 18 home dates per year....(15 home matches + 3 playoffs / friendlies) That's $234,000 per season plus tax = $259,740 per season. Multiply by five seasons on the lease = $1.3 million. Surely there are reduced rates for leaseholders... these numbers are quoted as "day rates" for one-off events. Do you critics and worrywarts out there really think Kerfoot, Nash and Mallet are sweating over $1.3 million broken up over a five year period?
