I just wish the Whitecaps just stick with one jersey for at least 10+ years.  

I'm not too familiar with soccer jerseys of Europe, but either than sponsors, they remain the same, right?

no

soccer jerseys in europe change faster then in the nhl

they have specialty jerseys for all tournaments

and other out of league competitions as well

go check manchester united home page

so many jerseys to choose from

whitecaps do not change their jerseys nearly as often

and do not yet use specialty jerseys

You and, I suspect, a lot of other people c.v.

 

But, hey, it's the start of a new season so let's hope for the best.

It’s local, crappy level of play which is made even worse by playing on Astro turf, soccer.  Don’t care. In North America all these soccer teams have losing rosters.

So where does MLS rank among world soccer leagues?  According to one site, it's tied for 52nd place (based on 2017 results).
