...no table seats and this was a season ticket game, so that probably knocks another 100 or so off the capacity. On the bright side they have been able to use some sort of artificial turf to create enough runoff space to have a field width of around 60 yards. That moves it from farcically narrow to uncomfortably narrow. Not many fans in the supporters zone for this one:
Were they able to put in the field side seats on the main stand side?

We are suffering from a lack of leadership in CPL, and it pisses me off.
If we can do media together, and have uniforms that are coordinated, they could lead on basic like ticketing, marketing and stadium configurations. The success of all is key for the league's future.
I think they need a major kick in the butt, but usually, if you are serious, you kick yourself in the butt first, no one else should have to.
I know folks are enthusiastic, but so far I would be hard pressed to say that any permanent stadium legacy of top quality is in place for the future of Canadian sport because of CPL. Was that too much to ask for?
Bit of time to recover and regroup between now and the next game. I'm expecting to see some of the kinks worked out and a deeper bench.
Halifax also has two games before we face them. The scheduling has to be tough on everyone.
The International Window for June is from the 3rd to 11th, I wonder if they have decided train the first week in Alliston, ON for Training Camp before flying out to LA or just training in California all together. Does anyone know the Venue? Hope it's not closed doors, a proper official friendly, Starting XI with 6 subs.
