In homage to a well known Saskatoon fruit and solidarity with a recently expelled English club:

Berry FC.  😁

Well Gigg Lane isn't in use, it is the perfect size stadium for a CPL club. Can't see any issues.

Very informative Rob Notenboom article from 24th Sept, 2019. I really need to start checking the northernstartingeleven site more often.

...

So Saskatchewan soccer fans will have much to look forward to as the Saskatchewan Summer Soccer Series returns in 2020 and as the build to the Canadian Premier League continues for 2021.

It is a potentially huge step. Certainly have to think its a position with a long term view. 

2021, 2022 or 20Never, probably still anyone's guess. The games this summer need to be well attended. The average was 3k last year. If it can somehow push nearer 5 that will might be enough for triggers to be pulled.

It's a hard judge because more people will absolutely jump on board for CPL/televised/formal games. It's hard to bring out general sports fans/non hardcores for friendly games against the likes of Foothills or Highlanders etc. 

We shall see what lies ahead for the SKSSS 2020. Should be an exciting ride either way!

I'd be curious to see if any CPL clubs would play in the summer series as a friendly. Could help drum up interest and showcase to potential investors what the league has to offer, as well as what SK can produce. 

... and there's lots of room in the schedule during midweeks ! lol

I could see some pre-season action. Ottawa go to Spain for their pre-season while Valour go to Saskatchewan!
