The Toronto Rock were basically the buzz of the city in Toronto pre-TFC starting. Whatever you are trying to read from a team playing a totally different sport in an indoor stadium is nearly irrelevant. Really, I don`t think there is anything you can glean from the state of CPL attendances based on the popularity of the Toronto Rock. I know what I’m talking about don’t worry bud. Yes I know the Rock were getting great attendances back in the day and the last few years in Toronto attendance had gone down quite a bit. Moreover, yes they have been around a long time compared to Forge . However, with Toronto still in their name and this season playing out of Hamilton they have had crowds at times twice the size of what Forge has ever gotten besides their first ever game . However, when I read an earlier post that a local station mentions every Hamilton and Toronto team but Forge in their sportscast that’s truly sad that we are still dealing with crap like this in 2022. Moreover, the two major national sports networks ignoring this League doesn’t help either. Again just want to say owners in this league need to realize that the stadium, the venue plays such a big part in getting people in the seats . It’s not going to happen overnight but especially with new teams coming in the league in the future , consideration needs to be taken in the type of stadium these new teams will play in . If proper stadiums can be built at least for the new teams , smaller four sided stadiums with proper roofs over the stands if possible people will come I have no doubt .The CPL teams I would love to go watch a home game at the moment are Pacific, HFX Wanderers and Cavalry mainly for the stadiums they play out of. I have no desire to go to any of the other stadiums unfortunately. I go to York United games because they are literally in my backyard more or less and represent the area I live in but how I wish their stadium was better than what they play in now . Hopefully I get my wish if that new Woodbine stadium is a go . Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
