General Admission tickets will be just $8 for adults, $5 for those under-23 and just $2 for those under-12, or for $18 fans can get a ticket to the game and an autographed disc.
Keys to the Game
This will be the fourth meeting between the Whitecaps and the Current this season, with D.C. claiming two of the previous three matchups. D.C. was the first team to ever beat the Whitecaps in MLU play, and then became the only team to ever win a game in Boston. Over the three games D.C. has outscored Boston by just a single point at 51-50. In Week 2’s win over the Whitecaps it took a last second hammer from Peter Prial to Calvin Oung, and the Eastern Conference Championship game should be another close match.

Players to Watch
Alan Kolick: Kolick finished the regular season with the most assists (30) in the MLU, and third overall in total points (44). Kolick has been the driving force behind the Current’s offense all season long and is a leading candidate to earn MVP honors. Kolick has scored 13 points in three games against the Whitecaps this season including a seven-point effort in Week 2.
Markham Shofner: Shofner finished tied for the league lead in assists with 30 and is a threat to put the disc deep at any point on the field. If Shofner has a throwing window he will look to exploit the Whitecaps defense by taking deep shots on Saturday.
Jeff Graham: Graham finished the regular season second in the league with 47 points and proved equally effective at getting into the end zone (27 goals) as he was hitting teammates for the score (20 assists.) Graham recorded seven points against the Current in Week 2 and D.C. will need to limit his big play ability if they want to make it to the MLU Championship game.
