When the CPL announcement seemed imminent, I stopped caring about the roster rules of American leagues. If anything this strengthens the CPL player pool.

I broke it down for you guys *** CPL Commissioner Clanachan interview  https://youtu.be/xQ5oAOq3pJk CPL working on different scenarios and schedules to restart the league Single ta

I just have to say, I am enjoying this league even more than I originally expected. I think in the 12 years I have followed MLS, I could probably count on two hands the amount of games I watched that

We see Pacific FC are sending Haber out, so that means we could have players from every team. That makes sense for things like kits, but also if you have the opening day decided, you get pics with players of each team in the first fixtures (with an uneven schedule one team would have to repeat to get all the openers in). I doubt they'd have already sorted out full scheduling details with some stadiums being shared.

But for me it is still rather early. I am used to Spain where the schedules are not decided until maybe 6 weeks before the season starts, and they only decide exact times for matches as little as a month before they are played. Right now I see no game in March in Spain has a time and date set.

Actually,, comparing how scheduling is done between leagues in a thread 354 pages long is not the sort of thing most Voyageurs are asking to be saved from. Let me explain, since you did not get it: in Spain, and other major leagues, they don't put out schedules that early, which suggests that there is no essential reason to have to do so in the new CPL for any particular reason. The argument that you need a schedule for people to commit to buying tickets could be, as a possible logical consequence, falacious. 

Just block me if such things are too much for you to get your head around. 95% of posters on the board actually understand the logic of those arguing a point here on the basis of a comparison.

Edit: (don't read this @Bison44 it'll give you an aneurism): I just checked that the CFL schedule was released before Xmas, so that would give all teams the possibility to in fact be able to decide on preferable home dates.

This burned me when I was in Logrono and San Sebastien a couple years ago. Wanted to see a Osasuna or Real Sociedad match, but the week before the date changed for the Osasuna match and the time changed for the Sociedad match. Hopefully, we don't see fixture changes to the same degree.

Could it be that the league is announcing the new name to be the Volkswagen CPL? Honestly I wouldn’t mind a title sponsor at all if it puts more $ in the league.

Bingo. If the Hyundai A-League is good enough for the Aussies, then the Volkswagen Canadian Premier League is good enough for me. I'd still be a bit disappointed at not knowing the broadcasting rights/schedule arrangement, but this would still be pretty big news and a win for the league.

It won’t be the kits as already confirmed by DC.  I see from a picture a fan has posted they have CPL balls with Volkswagen logo on them.

Volkswagen would be big sponsor. However I really hope this announcement is more than just that. Also...not a fan of the design of those balls...

Yea it has to be more with all teams bringing reps.  Wouldn’t make sense to just take a picture in front of a VW logo.

Two-second rant: As much as I love the simplicity of Cavalry's logo, it's drives me nuts that they can't make up their damn minds about which version to use. Red with white lines, white with red lines, green with white lines, white with green lines - bloody hell, pick ONE and stick with it as your primary crest. Use the others sparingly to shake things up now and then, but for God's sake be consistent.
