Everything you need to know for Saturday's match.

It's almost USL matchday! Republic FC host Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 this Saturday in the two clubs' second meeting of the season, the first which ended in a 0-0 draw. Republic FC will enter the match with plenty of confidence after a midweek 4-1 win over MLS side Real Salt Lake in the Fourth Round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. 

Saturday's match will once again feature $10 20 oz beers from 6:30 p.m. through kickoff and you can get out of the sun in The Market with our new shaded area. As we enter these hot days of summer, we'd also like to remind fans that small soft sided coolers and sealed bottled water are allowed into Papa Murphy's Park. 

Below is everything else you need to know for Saturday’s match.
