  1. news from down under re: their set up of a second division - proposed: https://www.theroar.com.au/2020/09/15/aafc-releases-plans-for-second-division-by-2022/ https://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/ffa-chief-urges-collaboration-over-a-league-second-division-plans-20200915-p55vyk.html the AAFC as well as FFA are to decide on if this "Australian Championship" will be single table or conferences.
  2. I was also looking at this article : https://bleacherreport.com/articles/258898-structuring-cis-for-long-term-growth-step-1-expansion-for-stability 1. Canada could have 6 regional leagues : BC, Prairies, Western Ontario, Eastern Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic 2. Top 2 from each regional league advance to championship. BC, Prairies, Western Ontario form the Western Bracket and Eastern Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic for the Eastern Bracket. 3. 5 team single round robin match for each bracket 4. Top team from each bracket would meet in an East v. West final. Just a thought.
  3. Wow, that seems somewhat hypocritical for Filosa to pretend that a CPL Montreal team could work when he has been against it all along. The trouble in Montreal is that it has never supported second teams. ie below the Canadiens and Impact. Look at junior hockey, when the Montreal Rocket moved to PEI and the Montreal Junior folded, and Laval Titan moved to Acadie Bathurst. Even in soccer, FC Montreal only averaged 200 - 300 spectators. It would seem that Quebec City would work better for the CPL and if they wanted to get a stadium why not use Patro Charlesbourg??
  4. https://www.ftbl.com.au/news/npl-clubs-form-25-team-second-division-group-552425 Quote from article: Could there be a second-tier competition, with 10 or 12 teams that play 20-odd rounds home and away or do we look at a second-tier competition with conferences based in different states around the country that play half the season at state level and then end up playing at national level in a group stage, similar to how the Brazilian league operates,” Johnson recently told News Corp. “There’s two parts to the season that starts at state level, then a qualification process that goes into a national level of competition. “This is something we could look at because someone of our challenges in Australia are similar to Brazil – where you have competition that are strong at state level and you have a very big country geographically, so their solution was to use this sort of format.” Same for Canada. Just a thought.
  5. Why merge L1O and PLSQ? Wouldn't it be better to designate L1O as "Central" and PLSQ including future Atlantic Canada teams as "East"??
  6. Are there any cities or towns that can count as being in both the Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley regions?? I could see New West, Kelowna, Kamloops, Fraser Valley in L1BC.
  7. Outside of Pacific FC, how many BC teams would be truly viable for the CPL??? And where??
  8. https://www.mountroyalsoccer.com/2020/4/28/21240086/2020-season-looking-ever-less-likely-to-resume This coming from a doctor from FIFA!
  9. Saw this article: https://aftn.ca/dare-to-dream-canadian-premier-league-pro-rel-single-entity-and-a-canadian-football-pyramid/ someone's dream but names potential D2 locations.
  10. They do NOT want to lose the gate, BUT they will not likely get a lot of fans at the game, as it will be too risky and fans would be afraid to catch the virus. I support the Impact but do not feel comfortable about going to the games this summer. (unless the Quebec government gives the all clear for fans to go back and/or a vaccine is developed) If they play behind closed doors I could watch it on TV.
  11. After looking at : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_100_largest_municipalities_in_Canada_by_population the areas with 400-500k population left (without a CPL team) are: Surrey, BC Mississauga, Ont Brampton, Ont Laval, Qc Kitchener and London, Ont (if you count the metropolitan population, not just the city population) And after that with: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_census_metropolitan_areas_and_agglomerations_in_Canada MAYBE Niagara Region, Ont Durham Region, Ont IF any other team is set up in the Maritimes it would have to represent the whole province. Just a thought.
  12. What about just doing Division 2 and maybe even D3 WITHIN the CPL if goes beyond 16 teams? https://www.theroar.com.au/2020/02/17/a-radical-proposal-for-a-revised-a-league/ Just a thought.
  13. OK, BUT will the CanPL team be a Vancouver team or a Fraser Valley team?? And what city will draw from both Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley region, Surrey, Langley or Burnaby??
  14. What about this when and if the CPL gets to 24 teams: https://www.theroar.com.au/2020/02/17/a-radical-proposal-for-a-revised-a-league/ and what would be the other 8 teams to get up to 24 teams (outside of the ones you mentioned)??
  15. for the west you can add : Saskatchewan and Fraser Valley for the east you can add : Grand River(KW) and Quebec City East West 6 teams each. Something like the CEBL wants to do.
