  1. I'd agree. Given that we don't have reliable metrics for One Soccer's actual subscription uptake, Youtube data seems to be the closest proxy we have to gauging interest. There's a noticeable spike in views every time there's a major national team match, and even some of the Canadian Championship matches have turned a few heads. And this all helps get more people paying attention to One Soccer as a platform and the rest of the content they offer, namely, the CPL. I'm not going to speculate on precise figures for One Soccer subscriptions or revenue from all of this, but given that their Youtube subscribers have increased by nearly 150% since March and their cumulative views have increased by about 200% in that same timespan, it seems like the general trend is looking good.
  2. Over 114,000 views for their Youtube highlights of last night's CAN-SLV match in the last 10 hours. Getting (most of) the rights to the men's and women's national teams matches really seems to be doing the trick for One Soccer.
  3. Does anyone know who the owners of the Stingers are? I know it's a bit apples to oranges, but they really seem to have taken hold in Edmonton and created a buzz (no pun intended). As for the venue, I'm constantly amazed at how resolutely meh Clarke Stadium is.
  4. Anyone know of any local pubs showing the match on TV? My buddy and I might look for a drier alternative to swimming through the match at Lansdowne.
  5. Mayhaps he's teasing that Quebec City and Laval are indeed the expansion sides?
  6. That, or maybe my perennial expansion favourite of Moncton. Seriously. That stadium should not go to waste.
  7. Right move. I know this will turn off some fans and prevent some from going if they're not already fully vaccinated/unable to get a test in time, but hopefully it'll be reassuring enough for those who are that they feel more comfortable getting back to the match. I imagine the rest of the league will follow suit fairly quickly.
  8. As if my being a Wanderers fan but having season tickets to Atlético wasn't enough in terms of divided loyalties, I've always had a soft spot for Winnipeg. I was out for my morning bike ride through Ottawa earlier wearing my Valour kit, and who passes me and compliments me on my gear but Rob Gale. I friggin' love this league.
  9. Probably a dumb question, but I'll ask: If a camera operator can't use a cherry-picker because of the safety concerns with the hydro pole, is there any safe way to just mount a remote-operated camera to a cherry-picker and operate it from the ground? I feel like there has to be a solution to this damn problem. Also, separate topic: Has anyone seen/heard any further news on LSSE getting approval from city council in Saskatoon for the stadium?
  10. Agreed. Great atmosphere in the stands, and pretty happy with how the Bytown Boys and CCSG kept at it tonight. Also impressed with how many people already have/were lining up to buy merch. It feels good to be back.
  11. It actually was a true "pay what you want" scenario. I already have seasons but was curious about the idea, and when I checked the TD Place site you could pick tickets for $0. I recall someone on here posting that around half of the spectators decided to throw a few bones at Atletico, but no idea on how much gate-driven revenue was generated.
  12. Did anyone catch the attendance tonight? It seemed like a solid crowd, but I didn't hear them announce the final figure.
