Our soc­cer hooli­gans be­have them­selves

Vancouver Magazine - - Cover Story -

Are they loud? Sure. Are they rowdy? Most cer­tainly. On game days, the group is on its feet, chant­ing, hol­ler­ing and drink­ing from kicko— to the last whistle. But the South­siders—the White­caps’ uno˜cial fan club, which oc­cu­pies the south­east corner of BC Place and, at 1,200 mem­bers and grow­ing, is the largest crew of or­ga­nized sup­port­ers in Canada—would rather sing tweaked ver­sions of Depeche Mode songs than riot any day.
