Concerts, golf passes, exhibitions.

Now, Morning Star online readers have a chance to win tickets to see B.C.’s professional soccer team in action.

The Morning Star’s current online contest is for two lucky people to win tickets to see the Vancouver Whitecaps host the Colorado Rapids on Sunday, Sept. 23, or tickets to watch the ‘Caps host their arch-rivals, the Seattle Sounders, on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Both Major League Soccer games are at Bell Pitch at B.C. Place.

The soccer tickets are the latest prizes to be offered since the paper began running online contests in August. The Morning Star has given away tickets to the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues music festival, golf passes to The Rise and tickets to the Interior Provincial Exhibition in Armstrong.

“The contests have been exceptional,” said Morning Star publisher Ian Jensen. “For the IPE one alone, we had more than 900 entries. It’s been awesome.”

To enter for the Whitecaps tickets, visit www.vernonmorningstar.com and click on the ‘Contests’ tab.

The Whitecaps contest ends at noon Monday, Sept. 17.

Jensen said there will be more such contests coming up.
