  1. Wouldn't be that surprising. After all. the RCSL (Rugby Canada Super League) teams was called Valley Venom, The CEBL team is the Fraser Valley Bandits.
  2. https://the18.com/soccer-news/montreal-impact-attendance-saputo-stadium does not paint a rosy picture for the Impact.
  3. I've talked to a lot of people in the Impact fan club and they feel the CPL will get to 16 teams max. The only way I could see pro/rel work in a Canadian context is if there is a "split" with a top 8 bottom 8 Like in Scotland. Just a thought. FWIW there have been discussions in Australia for setting up a national second division - the Australian Championship
  4. I know we've talked in the past about having 24 teams, but what about just simply 12 teams for D1 and 12 teams for D2. (Instead of East/Central/West as discussed before). Just for curiosity where do you see 24 teams (and the population cutoff)??
  5. And what of IMFC TFC and VWFC, should they leave MLS as well to come to CPL. (over the long term)
  6. Just watched that video and it make sense to put the team at Centennial Stadium after all the other Kitchener sports teams (Rangers, Titans, and Panthers) are located there. Just a thought.
  7. Sherbrooke has indicated they are NOT looking at CPL : https://northerntribune.ca/le-mistral-de-sherbrooke-cpl/ As well for the proposed Australian Second Division, they will likely be looking for teams that will cover geographic areas with populations of 250 000 or more.
  8. So what you are implying here is that the CPL will only go to 16 teams. I talked to my "coach on the Montreal South Shore" (name and city withheld by request) and he said the CPL should just get to 16 teams and that is it. ie a closed league, I also suggested to him that there should be a Division A and Division B just like this article: https://www.theroar.com.au/2018/05/17/leagues-promotion-relegation-solution-needs-unique-australia/ Like Down Under, Canada is unique so we need a creative solution. FWIW the coach liked the idea of Division A and Division B. https://www.ffa.com.au/news/australian-football-working-towards-national-second-division-2021 Of interest also, Australia's plan for National Second Division. I have talked to other people re CPL and some think it could goto 24 teams maybe 12 in D1 and 12 in D2.
  9. ….this document from Down Under: https://www.ffa.com.au/sites/ffa/files/2019-06/16717_FOOTBALL_National%20Second%20Division_Low%20Res_Single%20Pages.pdf?_ga=2.155365426.841575353.1561054249-1436778458.1561054249 provides some inspiration and food for thought. Enjoy reading this white paper and this thread is now open for discussion and debate
  10. Just what the US needs, another national league when there is already NISA, USL, NPSL, UPSL, US Premiership, ASL. 😠Even more galling, to call it CPL 😫
  11. maybe this is one way to do pro-rel once CPL hits 16 teams: https://www.theroar.com.au/2018/05/17/leagues-promotion-relegation-solution-needs-unique-australia/ Or you might find this interesting as well: https://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/there-must-be-28-teams-before-a-league-relegation-says-pfa-chief food for thought.
  12. Maybe Sudbury as a social club along these lines: http://torontorugby.ca/clubs/sudbury-stones-rfc/ Just a thought.
  13. https://www.ffa.com.au/sites/ffa/files/2019-05/Whole_of_Football_Plan.pdf goto page 84 and the composition of the A-League. One interesting area: Every major Australian center with a population over 500 000 has the market size to host and A-League club and no pro-rel between A-League and National Premier Leagues (Yet Paul Beirne wanted Canadian centers with populations of 200 000 to host CPL a club. Just a thought.
