    I was thinking similarly (I think). Why doesn't the CSA play on our cultural diversity and bring in nations for friendlies that will result in a 50/50 crowd and aim to convert 1/3 of them to Canadian fans each time? Like what we said with the ES fans, as long as they cheer for us every time except against ES I'm fine with that. Thinking outside of the Americas, why not bring in Egypt or Greece or Serbia for friendlies. Other "footballing" countries with decent national teams with sizeable populations in Canada that will draw fans. That should be the CSA's strategy. Then when it comes time for these WCQ or for 2026, you have more fans converted into followers of Canadian football. Simply having MLS and CPL teams, which frankly have very niche followings, is not a way to create a sea of red. We're different from other countries so we have to think differently

    I think the first incident that I can recall was Honduras at Saputo in 2008(?).  Some of the Hondurans who charged the home supporters happened to have been located right next to us.  That was the most violence I’ve seen at a Canada match; the CSA has learned a lot since then and there has been adequate separation.  Not to say problems won’t happen in the future but right now it’s pretty much isolated cases that local security will have to manage.
    As for early ticketing, you’re right, we got official word very late this window.  Part of it was ensuring crowds could come in.  But at the end of the day, the CSA has been very helpful in helping us secure the entire south end at BMO.  We need to have checks and balances that no away supporters get their hands on those tickets.  Learned a lot from ticketing this cycle.

    Thanks, great report. 
    As someone who has been in stadiums full of Mexican fans and with a small Canada contingent (like our GC match in Seattle way back), I would say this: in the US, and maybe Canada, even the Mexican fans are more about numbers than intensity. They go to see Mexico, want them to win, but you see families, they are relaxed and even low key, and very few are anywhere near real football fans. For them it is just something to do, like going on a church picnic. There are quite a few women and lots of families, groups of friends. They wear the shirt. But it's not very aggressive--only if someone gets drunk does that change. 
    I've never been to a Mexican league match and I'm sure that is different.

    I was on the opposite to the AO.  They seemed to be louder early in the game and definitely tailed off as the game progressed. 
    The area I was in had a lot of families of which the majority were more or less sitting on their hands. There was a couple of pockets of Frat-boy types who were poorly (And I mean really poorly) trying to heckle the Canadian players and the guys in the bench who were warming up right in front of us.   Real gems like “Davies, you must work out at Planet fitness!” and “number 2, who are you, I’ve never even heard of you”
    After that last one, I turned around, cursed the guy out and let him know we were actually in Alistair Johnston’s home stadium. That quieted him down temporarily.  A few others around me jumped in with  “which number was that?” “Does he really play here?” LoL 
    Most of the banter was good natured, and my biggest complaint was just how incredibly lame the majority of their comments were. 
    One of the hecklers brought me back a beer after halftime, so it all worked out just fine!  
    I probably stood most of the game, though most of the people around me sat.  I would’ve stood more, but I had an 8 yr old kid in the seat behind me and every once in a while I would feel a bit guilty that I was blocking his view and I would try sitting down for a couple of minutes. 

    So yeah, to your point @Unnamed Trialist it’s  safe to say that an awful lot of the people at the Nashville game should probably be considered casual fans at best.

    A member of the Vs Kyle who lives in Nashville and organized the pre-game bar took these pics of the pregame gathering, march and in the stadium. while it was not the biggest group of Canadian supporters to attend an away game their voices were heard. Head Coach John Herman even told me so earlier this afternoon down at BMO, they really appreciated those who made the trek from close and far.
