    There are no advertisements for the Vancouver Whitecaps II games and the team isn't covered by any major media outlets.

    I'm surprised they draw as well as they do actually.

    I personally don't really like big crowds and I can't stand the drumming at the MLS games, but, I'm hoping to go with a friend of mine to a couple Whitecaps II games next season. We may even get season tickets.
