The Southsiders are the largest and loudest of the three supporter groups. They typically take over the southeast corner of BC Place Stadium (in sections 249-254).
Southsiders used to meet for pre-game drinks at Doolin’s pub on Granville Street at Nelson not far from BC Place Stadium. Prior to COVID-19, they began meeting first at the Blarney Stone at 216 Carrall Street in Gastown. After their ritual of pre-game beverages, the Southsiders would march en masse to the game.
The Vancouver Whitecaps are one of several professional sports teams in the Lower Mainland.
