Caps to play trio of MLS exhibition games

By Marc Weber Mon, Feb 1 2010

The Vancouver Whitecaps will play exhibition games against three Major League Soccer teams this month in Phoenix. Last year, the Caps went to Tanzania on a pre-season tour. This time around it's more important to see how the squad stacks up against MLS competition, as the Caps are set to join North America's top tier in 2011.

Vancouver faces the Seattle Sounders on Feb. 11, Chicago Fire on Feb. 15 and current MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake on Feb. 20. Official confirmation and more details are expected soon.

The Caps lost 4-0 to Seattle this time last year, so it will be interesting to compare the results. Looks like Caps coach Teitur Thordarson will have almost his full squad available. M/D Wes Knight (knee) and F Dever Orgill (knee) are both coming off minor surgery and won't make the trip.
