Captain George Vancouver's crew is a Vancouver Whitecaps FC supporters group being created in anticipation of the clubs move to MLS in 2011. We are also here to cheer on the club during their final year in USL1. The general idea of the group is to have a CAPO (soccer term for leader) who is dressed as Captain George Vancouver, a British sailor whom the city of Vancouver BC is named after. Cpt. Vancouver was the first European to sail into the Burrard Inlet past Stanley Park, a feat which he did in 1792. This will be the general time frame the group will play off of. But all sailors are welcome from all time periods. When it comes to TIFO, the Captain himself (that would be me) is currently in discussion with Vancouver Whitecaps FC head office on the possibility of having a cannon to fire off during games. The more of us there are, the more likely this is to happen. Other ideas up in the air include a flag pole to 'Hoist the Colours' up at the beginning of each home game. Using traditional sea shanties and naval songs for songs to sing during matches. Having some sort of free sailor hat as part of a paid membership package. Establishing The Lamplighter pub as our home base. Did I mention we could get a cannon? I think that if we all work together here we could create something truly memorable and fantastic for our Vancouver Whitecaps FC. We could create an atmosphere that is talked about all over professional soccer. That's what I want to do, and I hope every one of you want to join me in this. Message me through here if you would like to talk further, or even better join the crew and talk there. I'm the Captain himself.
