They're on the border.  If a ball sails over the net and north end and rolls over Steeles Avenue, it stops in York Region.  

they're like a km into toronto. that's one powerful ass kick

This move now means if someone with coin and ambition in Sudbury wanted to launch an L1O team (Dario Zulich), they now need to be prepared to launch 2-sides: L1O & L1O Reserve. 

True, but Sudbury could have a L10 Reserve team as long as they have an OPDL license. Barrie's in the same boat. Perhaps this is the organic way of growth for the smaller cities: a well-run local club gets an OPDL license (or some equivalent in other provinces); establishes a L10 Reserve team; adds a L10 team; through some sort of promotion gets to CPL2; then, maybe even promotion to CPL1. One can dream.

Correct me if I'm wrong, cause I haven't been in 40 years--but I was under the impression that the one thing Sudbury does have is COIN !

I suspect there might be some disagreement that you haven't been wrong in 40 years?

Maybe he means he hasn't been to Sudbury in 40 years

T-Minus 40 minutes until the big event! 

Below is the stream link for everyone to see, so no one misses a thing live as it happens, unless you're in person at a kit reveal party 

https://canpl.ca/article/kit-reveal-stream

Looking forward to this!

Thanks for this - CanPL telling us to tune in, but not telling us where is typical.

This federation is going to be exactly like the Australian FFA judging from how frustrating they've been with CanPL news. It's been 30 minutes and if I tuned in late, I'd think I'm watching other CanPL matters.

Duane R. was probably hoping to be one of the Canadians in the by part on this. If control has been signed over as appeared to be suggested when the deal was announced, Mediapro can probably do what they like at this point on stuff like that and a lot will depend on how easy they find it to attract sponsors and subscribers for the app channel. If revenues are an uphill struggle, costs will no doubt be cut back to the bare bones.

Outside of the nationalistic angle I'm okay with this. It's becoming more and more the norm in pro sports with major networks like ESPN doing it regularly. Even if it's non-Canadians doing the broadcast it's somewhat excusable because the production rights are no longer controlled by the league.

I know it's early, but does anyone know if the CPL plans to give the winning club/finalists prize money? Even something like 100k would be a decent boost for a new club, and would help towards creating some separation in the league. I'm not one for parity, I would like to see 1 or 2 clubs established as big clubs in the Canadian game, and rewarding winning clubs is a easy way to help that along.

To my knowledge nothing like this has been identified. I personally am also all for it, although as long as there is a salary cap it'd be hard to use that for anything other than training or operations so it would go a lot further to make owners happy than improve player quality I think.

The cap will certainly limit clubs from spending money they earn on improved player quality, but something like 100k made available towards a trasfer fee in a league where most clubs are built on free agent signings would be a big advantage imo.

I'd also be happy to see a club use prize money to help launch an academy. Obviously wouldn't immediately help a club become "a big club", but would be an important piece in developing a sustainable club

Any early content from pre-season camp in the Dominican Republic? I've seen a few on the leagues official website (CanPL.ca) but expecting a lot more features, interviews, footage, articles being writer about where each team stands

The Next 10 Days are gonna go by fast! From what I'm hearing only 2 games will be played (1 vs local pro team and 1 vs CPL) which is too bad, thought at least three

Maybe Media Pro can get come highlights and sneak peaks of what their broadcasts will look like this season :)

One thing that I haven't seen mentioned here is prior to the kits unveiling the commish stated that the league will not allow flipping and flopping around the field., and that he'll stop that by being "tough on crime". He also called it Un Canadian. I'm happy he listened to me since I mentioned it here about a year ago.??

I think we can all forever dedicate our less-floppy league to you!
