  1. Its already a Canadian League of course but adding clubs in good markets with strong ownership groups is of utmost importance and Quebec will likely be having at least one club in the CPL in the near future.
  2. Not surprising for an international company, bribes are just part of business dealings in many 3rd world countries. They wouldn't be so blatant in first world countries though if they're smart.
  3. Pacific FC may get B.C. rival in Canadian Premier League soccer “It would be fantastic … the Lower Mainland is a clear goal for the league,” said Pacific FC president and co-owner Josh Simpson. Simpson was responding to a story in Transfermarkt, the authoritative soccer website, which reported on the weekend that placing a team on the Lower Mainland, possibly the Fraser Valley, is a “major priority.” “That team could see major financing from the German Bundesliga,” wrote Oak Bay-based Transfermarkt reporter Manuel Veth. A Lower Mainland CPL team would give
  4. The Abbotsford hockey team was a disaster from the start with them being Calgary Flames minor league affiliate. Giants are doing alright at the LEC and the ownership is apparently happy with them being there.
  5. Canadian Premier League expansion - Bundesliga involved in Fraser Valley project? there is also talk about expansion in British Columbia. One location that has been targeted by the league is Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley Regional District. Putting a second team in BC, in general, and a team in close proximity to Vancouver, in particular, is a major priority for when the league expands next. That team could see major financing from the German Bundesliga. https://www.transfermarkt.us/canadian-premier-league-expansion-bundesliga-involved-in-fraser-valley-project-/view/new
  6. There going to be far enough away from the caps main base of fan support likely and the size of the lower mainland can support 2 pro teams.
  7. Miller: Fraser Valley Could Support A CPL Expansion Team https://northerntribune.ca/fraser-valley-colin-miller/ There’s definitely a market and it would be a well supported franchise in my opinion. I’m the colour commentator for TSN for the Whitecaps, and I genuinely believe there is a market in the Fraser Valley. As you can imagine, a lot of people have moved out of Vancouver because of the house prices and so on, so there’s a much younger demographic in the Langley area and in the Abbotsford area where I live, there’s a lot of young families moving out there. I genuinely believe it’
  8. Don't think Division 1 CPL would ever be interested in a Championship event with a US Division 2 league that's partly a minor league of MLS. Would be a step down and of no value for them. Would be like the NHL vs AHL.
  9. Some CPL Players on league communication or lack of. The CPL is either very close and hammering out final details or ready to call the season off? : CPL Players Are Taking To Twitter To Complain About A Lack Of League Communication The first signs of public discourse from CPL athletes came when Nico Pasquotti directly asked the league if it would clarify any plans for a season 19 days ago, with both of the Halifax Wanderers goalkeepers liking the tweet amongst numerous fans. York9 FC midfielder Chris Mannella also launched a tweet directed at the league a few days ago, but this was s
  10. USL seems to be doing well on its resumed season with some strict guidelines : COVID-19 Update: USL Championship confirms nine players from eight clubs test positive "On Monday, the United Soccer League (USL) confirmed that 2,357 tests were administered to 1,227 players and club staff from the 35 Championship clubs, including the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, between June 30th and July 13th with nine individuals testing positive from eight clubs. What happens after a positive test? The individual will be immediately isolated and receive follow-up care and treatment from tea
  11. As long as social distancing, wearing masks, etc is followed see no reason limited fan attendance shouldn't be allowed. They can do it indoors at the store etc, so doing it at a large outdoor stadium, where the risk is very small transmission wise (as BC's Dr Henry basically said) should be acceptable.
  12. Think it will actually happen this week re an announcement for the CPL return to the field. Not easy to set this up amid the coronavirus situation but hopefully its back to the pitch soon : Canadian Premier League Expected To Make Announcement This Week https://northerntribune.ca/canadian-premier-league-return-to-play-soon/ "The modified Canadian Premier League tournament is expected to see each club play eachother once, with the top four teams then moving on to the playoffs. In the last few months the cities of Langford, Charlottetown, and Moncton have all been mentioned as pos
  13. USL returned to continue they're regular season over the weekend with multiple games and social distanced limited fans in attendance. Indy Eleven had over 4700 in attendance, Louisville opened they're new 15K stadium with 4800 fans, and Tampa Bay Rowdies limited they're first game to 140 invite only fans. USL Championship 2020 season resumes https://soccerstadiumdigest.com/2020/07/usl-championship-2020-season-resumes/
  14. I think its likely to happen, just some hicups have occured along the way and these things take time. MLS has started, USL to follow this weekend (with some fans in attendance at certain locations), NHL getting ready to return, and more thinking as time goes on that we have to live and adapt to the reality of coronavirus being with us and continue with living life and the realization that widespread lockdown's aren't feasable going forward so the re-openings and return of pro sports will continue. Its close imo to being announced and finalized, just a matter of time.
  15. Hope this happens, and would be nice to have some fans in attendance instead of the poor look and practice type feel of an empty stadium.
