SW Audio + Visual teams up with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC as Official Audio Visual Supplier
Both SW Audio + Visual and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC are committed to being champion organizations both on and off the field; maintaing a culture of team unity, excellence and constant improvement while supporting community growth initiatives. Their common vision and core values naturally drew the two teams together. SW has been a proud supporter of the Vancouver Whitecaps FC for years prior to the team joining MLS and is excited to provide continued support as Official Audio Visual Supplier.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC have an almost 40-year place in BC’s professional sports history. They played their first game in 1974, falling in a 2-1 home defeat to San Jose Earthquakes. Though their first game was a loss, the fresh team became the first professional sports team in Vancouver to win a major North American Championship in 1979. As many as 100,000 people lined Vancouver’s Robson Street to salute their heroes during a championship parade, arguably creating the most historic moment in Whitecaps history.
They continued through victories and upsets, pushing through various league changes and a team-name change (as the 86ers) to go on to become the 17th member of Major League Soccer in 2011. Later that year, it was announced that the team would make the newly renovated BC Place Stadium their home. As an official partner, SW will provide audio visual and technology support to game day activities and Vancouver Whitecaps FC events held throughout British Columbia.
