CPL new teams speculation

American here.

Question, where does the Fraser Valley start and end from East to West?

I think technically it starts in Abbotsford and ends in Boston Bar (and doesn't include Langley, lol).

Anything east of the Fraser River has typically been referred to as the Valley, from North Delta eastward.

west

winnipeg

sakatoon

12 team league is good enough to stabilize itself and grow on and off the field. Balance in East and west and provides francophone perspective as well

Langley Township, where a rumoured CPL club may play at the LEC, considers itself part of the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver.

From the Township of Langley website :

Centrally located in the Fraser Valley, the Township of Langley offers an unparalleled transportation network, world-class amenities and parks, and some of the region's most affordable housing and business lease rates.

Recently identified as Metro Vancouver's fastest growing municipality, we welcome you to explore why so many people are choosing our "community of communities" as the place to live, work, and play.

Maple Ridge is listed in the West Fraser Valley here :

Metro Vancouver is a technical area based on an effort for governments to work together in a super city type concept so there is some continuity between municipalities. It's an arrangement like the EU (no jokes please, lol) Culturally, physically and all else Langley is the Fraser Valley. If you live in Langley your living a Fraser Valley lifestyle. Surrey is to your immediate west. Aldergrove/Abbotsford to your immediate east. Fraser valley is bridge and tunnel, literally

Anything south of the Fraser River, Richmond excepted, and east of the Pitt River, is the Fraser Valley to me, regardless if Delta and North Surrey are technically in the actual valley.

Good to see this in Montreal.

Has anyone catalogued all the Supporter’s Groups in non-CPL markets? I know of a few, but would be interesting to see the full list, and ideally, a rough membership size. Stay safe out there.

If anything expanding the league to at least 16 teams would definitely make things more competitive but then if you have a 20 team league for CPL...you can run it in a molded image similar to the English Premier League like for example they have 20 teams in their league and if you are in the bottom 4 or something you get relegated and other Canadian cities take your spot...something like that

Metro Vancouver is always simmering and with Rob Friend's group possibly having a locked in lower expansion fee as some rumors have mentioned may likely happen sooner than later.

That option apparently expired.  There's no current rumors of a team coming to the Fraser Valley.  Clanachan didn't even list them recently as one of the areas in discussion.
