  1. Mark your calendars, folks - if all goes as planned, we'll be back on 22 May 21! https://canpl.ca/article/a-message-to-all-cpl-fans-an-open-letter-from-commissioner-david-clanachan-2
  2. Ahh, je ne le savais pas. Chuis un francophile autoproclamé mais comme le français n'est pas ma langue maternelle il reste toujours des nuances qui m'échappent. Merci pour la clarification !
  3. Semantics note/musings: When we finally do start to get some francophone clubs (I'm looking at you, Montreal, Quebec City and Moncton), I hope that they'll go with a francophone appellation. Personally, I'd love to see them use "Association sportive" à la AS Saint-Étienne or AS Monaco, or maybe "Union sportive" like some of the clubs in the Championnat national. Mostly, I just don't want to see everything branded as "FC ________" in French. I know that plenty of clubs in Ligue 1, Ligue 2, Jupiler Pro League and others use Football Club, Sporting Club, Racing Club, etc., but I can't say I've ev
  4. It's not quite identical, but damn . . . I guess the team-formerly-know-as-the-Impact liked your idea. https://www.lapresse.ca/sports/soccer/2021-01-14/l-impact-devient-le-club-de-foot-montreal.php?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Also, if anyone else is like me and prefers the existing crest, a lot of their now-obsolete merch is on sale. https://www.montrealimpactstore.ca/montreal-impact/t-25780263+os-67+z-933313-3715273288
  5. Question: How exactly does one go about securing (to the extent possible right now) season tickets? I've already provided my contact info to the club, and am a founding member from last year. I see that they're accepting deposits, but I'm wondering if I actually need to put one down considering I put down a deposit with my founding membership last year. I've tried to get a hold of the club box office, but it looks like TD Place is shut down due to the pandemic restrictions.
  6. According to Kurt Larson, there's also more to come. Fingers crossed for the Scottish Premiership and A-League . . .
  7. So, I noticed that the Atletico website is advertising 2021 deposits and season memberships. If I already paid a 2020 deposit, do I need to put down a new one? Or does it make any difference where seasons memberships are apparently available?
  8. I'd love it if they could manage to show more (or all) Ligue 1 matches. The A-League and the Scottish Premiership would be my other top choices, though at least those are available on Youtube after the matches have ended.
  9. Full brand story: https://yorkunitedfc.canpl.ca/brand-story
  10. The green, blue and gold . . . damn. Consider me a fan.
  11. Also, this rebranding video - holy shit, how'd they get Jay Baruchel?
  12. I'll be damned. CPL site now showing the leaked logo. Hovering my mouse over the logo, it shows up as "York United FC".
  13. Interesting point in this article is that it seems as though Téléfoot, Mediaopro's dedicated channel for French football, will stand down. Hopefully the same won't be true for One Soccer.
  14. No, but you do ask them to care about your health. When people are reckless with something like a pandemic, it puts unnecessary pressure on them and the health care system and wastes taxpayer dollars. Personal choices have societal impacts. Deny it all you want, but it's true.
  15. . . . I hope that's not actually it. That seems a bit too busy/trying too hard to be a La Liga look-alike. For what it's worth, I actually quite like the Y trillium design. They've also updated the CPL website to show that as the logo for the club.
  16. I'd hope they'd just go with York FC . . . like they probably should have from the beginning.
  17. So, maybe I missed a conversation about this somewhere (been busy with other things lately), but do we have any sense of what Westjet's pull-out from Atlantic Canada is going to mean for the Wanderers (and future expansion to Moncton, St John's , etc.)?
  18. Super busy with work, so I'll pop back later to comment/explain this in English. But this seems a weeeeeeeeee bit concerning. https://www.france24.com/fr/20201009-ligue-1-en-difficulté-mediapro-veut-renégocier-les-droits-tv?ref=tw_i
  19. I don't remember what the coverage was like last year, but the CBC seems to going all in on the final now. This is what CBC Sports looks like right now:
  20. Fair! Most Canadians don't even pronounce Newfoundland properly, so I guess we can't be *too* hard on him. 😛
  21. I've been pondering this for a while, and I'd love to see the CPL and the A-League establish some sort of professional relationship. Having the champion of each league fly to the other country (alternating years) for a friendly would be spectacular, and hopefully something that could be done for a reasonable price via their airline partners. More than that though, I'd love to see One Soccer and MyFootball (their One Soccer equivalent, so near as I can tell) enter into some kind of reciprocity agreement whereby they show each other's league matches. It seems like it would be an easy way for eac
  22. Try the search icon in the top right corner. If you type "Lille", it should show you both matches.
