Now, after surviving this week of finals, chances are you’ll go straight into hibernation. But, as the holidays approach, and the time of gift giving is near, I have compiled a list that will make finding the perfect gift for any soccer enthusiast, a lot easier.
Whether you have a few bucks, or even If you happen to be one the few with a part time job, picking up a few extra shifts over the break, I have you covered.
Canada vs Mexico Tickets
Last month, BC Place hosted the Canadian men’s national team against Honduras, where they won 1-0. A buzzing atmosphere, and a positive result has earned Vancouver the privilege to once again, host another World Cup qualifying match. On March 25, Canada will play powerhouse, Mexico. With the likes of Chicharito, Andres Guardado, and Carlos Vela, this is going to be a game you won’t want to miss.
Tickets go on sale December 15 @ 10 am., and start at $25.
There are now more soccer magazines out there, than ever. The ones I’ve chosen to highlight, aren’t the kind of sports magazines you find at 7/11, though.
Just take a look for yourself…
“Eight by Eight is a quarterly magazine about football and its place in our culture. Inside our pages, you’ll find an experience unlike anything else—the perfect storm of art direction, football, and storytelling.”
“Bled FC, the creative collective that aims to explore football’s worldwide culture is proud to present its first ever issue of Bled FC Magazine, focused on Southeast Asia. After setting foot in stadiums and playgrounds of Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar for more than 2 months, this issue brings the testimony of this trip.”
“The Blizzard is a quarterly publication from a cooperative of top class football journalists and authors from across the globe, enjoying the space and freedom to write about the football stories that matter to them.”
With the season now over, and focus shifting to next year, now is the perfect time to get a jersey, scarf, or any other Whitecaps merch. This weekend, on the 12th and 13th, the Whitecaps will be having clearance sales, where you can save up to 70% on products, including player-worn equipment.
When: Saturday, December 12, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: Langley Events Centre
When: Sunday, December 13, 12 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Where: BC Place – Gate H
Honestly, there’s good a chance you’ll see me treating myself at BC Place on Sunday, or even, at the game against Mexico in March.
