Take home Alumn, Rob Merkl's game-worn signed jersey from Whitecaps FC's Legends & Stars charity match on September 14th, 2019!
Merkl was a part of The Vancouver '86ers powerhouse soccer team that in 1989 set a North American sports record on their way to a Canadian Soccer League championship. The 1988 edition of the '86ers had won the CSL title and when the 1989 campaign began the team kept winning. Over two seasons, from June 5th, 1988 to August 8th, 1989, the team remained undefeated in 46 games (37 wins and nine ties). They eclipsed the Canadian pro sports record set by the 1978-79 Montreal Canadiens (28), the North American standard established by the 1979-80 Philadelphia Flyers (36) and even Nottingham Forest's English soccer record of 42 unbeaten games.
