It says it also has been able to move a match against Austin FC from July 28 to Sept. 4.

Whitecaps chief executive officer Axel Schuster says in a statement that the club explored a number of scheduling options in an effort to play as many games as possible at BC Place.

The club has been playing its home games in Sandy, Utah, for the Major League Soccer season due to COVID-19 restrictions.
