Week 3: Portland Stags (2-0) at Vancouver Nighthawks (1-1)
When: Sunday May 3 at 2:00 p.m. PST
Where: Thunderbird Stadium | Vancouver
Thunderbird Stadium | Vancouver
Located on UBC’s gorgeous campus, Thunderbird Stadium has been the home of the Vancouver Nighthawks since their inception. The stadium can comfortably seat 3,500 under the grandstand and has parking available just outside. For those fans lacking personal transportation, buses run from most SkyTrain stations. A map can be found here.
Although Sunday’s Vancouver International Marathon route goes through UBC and by Thunderbird Stadium, this will be early in the route so all disruptions caused by the marathon should be well over by the time you head to the game. The one exception would be the C-19 UBC bus route, which will not begin operations until 1:30 p.m.
If you can’t be there for the game, you can still follow it as it unfolds on Twitter.
You will also be able to watch the game in its entirety after the fact when it is posted on MLU TV’s Vancouver Nighthawks Channel. Look for it to appear on Tuesday.
Looking for a place to have a few pints, grab some food, and hang out with the Nighthawks after the game? Mahony & Sons is minutes away from Thunderbird Stadium (map here). Thanks to an all-ages family section, fans with kids in tow needn’t call it an early night on account of them. And if the company, Irish pub fare and convenience isn’t enough, bringing in your ticket stub will earn fans 10 percent off on game days.
Step Right Up
Still don’t have tickets for the game? Be sure to grab some at the gate or online here. Also, take note of the group ticket promotions. Purchase 10 or more tickets at a time and receive 40 percent off regular price along with some perks! Read about the promotion in full here.
Unfortunately, MLU is experiencing some difficulties with the stats system, so we are unable to provide access to proper statistics at this time. Rest assured they will appear on our website as soon as possible.
