Heading into its third Canadian Championship, Edmonton is still looking for its first victory in the competition. The Eddies have an overall record of 0-4-0 in the tournament, scoring once and conceding nine times.
Vancouver has a dubious record of its own in this competition, as the Whitecaps have never won the Canadian Championship in five tries. If the pre-Canadian Championship era Voyageurs Cups are included in the tally, the 'Caps have failed to lift the trophy despite competing for it for the past 11 seasons.
In the previous meeting between these two sides, Edmonton scored its only Canadian Championship goal in a 3-1 loss at BC Place.
Three games into the NASL campaign, the Eddies are 0-2-1, although they have yet to play a home game. The Whitecaps sport a 2-3-2 record in MLS play this year, although they're currently winless in five.
