Vancouver Whitecaps were the MLS' 17th franchise, joining the Western Conference in 2010. They were the first Canadian team to qualify for the MLS playoffs after making it to the postseason in 2012. The Whitecaps won their first game 4-2 in a thriller, with Eric Hassli scoring the team's first MLS goal. They failed to win any of their next eleven, however, and endured a predictably tough first season. In 2016, Vancouver endured another tough season, finishing eighth in the Western Conference and seven points adrift of the playoffs.
