The Whitecaps’ ‘Solutions for Now’ strategy

Axel Schuster spent 20 years in the Bundesliga before moving to Vancouver Whitecaps in late 2019. Rich contacts in Germany and neighbouring countries were all well and good, but Schuster needed to break into South America, which has become a strong buyer market for MLS clubs in recent seasons.

Into the squad ahead of the 2021 MLS season came dynamic Colombian winger Deiber Caicedo in a deal that originated through TransferRoom. Fast and direct: both Caicedo and the transfer.

The Whitecaps are also using connections made on TransferRoom to give more loan opportunities to their young players, with a tie-up with another Canadian club having been born out of a virtual summit.

Key benefits
  • Direct access to decision makers
  • Faster and no wasted effort
  • Signed Deiber Caicedo via TransferRoom ($2.5m)
  • Deals are faster and more direct
  • No unnecessary intermediaries
  • Huge loan opportunities through TransferRoom
  • Win-win with player development
