    i'm sure they'd have hired experienced staff but yea this is not something that should have stayed in house if they were producing their own stuff in someone was game to invest $200m~ bucks.
    all that said would not be shocked if they were at one point looking to build their own platform as mark silver specializes in digital sports platforms

    No.
    For that matter, we don't know if we will be able to watch games on "channels".

    St. John's; it was confirmed by @Copes that Clanachan has been to the island and spoken face-to-face with St. John's Sports and Entertainment (the Edge/Growlers ownership group), who are very interested but will wait at least a couple years before committing to anything.

    Just for fun. Who we know is interested and what markets are being explored
    Confirmed Owner Interested

    - Other Quebec Group. In the Montreal area or maybe Quebec City. Join date 2020 or later if Quebec City
    - BC Group. Location believed to be lower mainland BC. Join date target 2020
    - Belan's Group. Location Saskatchewan (likely Saskatoon)
    - MLSE. Location Ontario (likely GTA). Controversial but confirmed interested and have spoken to CPL
    Desired cities or locations with noted desire but unknown backer status

    - Moncton. Soccer New Brunswick are hoping to bring a team there.
    Interest but unclear
    - KW. CPL is interested in the market and have talked with Barry McLean but a lot remains unknown about how serious talks were and where a team would play (iirc)
    Mega Dark Horse
    - Oakville. Fan speculation based on high profile staff developments.
    Miss anything of note?

    i've worked similar projects in the past, the value of a deal will often include non-cash elements. i cannot speak to costs but i do know several things the cpl have quietly been working on for the last 2-3 years with regards to media and i know that his (and pb's) comments about production and the $200m total cited by places like the national post do not mesh with the league getting $150m cash over a decade.

    Potential FC Edmonton jersey posted on a local soccer shop Instagram?
    Unlikely to be the jersey because I doubt Dylan Powley would be posing with it before the launch. And it’s pretty boring.

    you guys are basically saying the same thing. $150m going into league infrastructure is $150m for the league. the media reports also included the csa as getting money

    it's a generation in and with only 3 teams who have fostered some solid talent including tabla and davies, given dudes like osorio a place to go pro that didn't exist prior. you sound blinded by an irrational hate. the cpl is designed to fill gaps left in development that cannot be covered by 3 teams. csl had what a dozen teams at its peak? did you actually expect canada to be a top 3 concacaf team with only 3 teams? no right? maybe it's time to realize the cpl isn't here to replace mls because the mls is doing fuck all but rather meant to fill a void.
    now for the love of satan can we leave this fucking thread to broadcast news shit instead of this moronic crap.

    The weather makes almost zero difference unless we are playing in the NWT and then it would affect our team as much as the opposition. During CCL the last 2 years TFC have won, lost and tied teams from Mexico and Panama during some absolutely horrible shit  weather.  Its not like the opposition rolled over and let us run up a 6-0 score line on them.  Every game was close.
    Play the games where we can minimize the support for the opposition OR make enough money to start having some frickin friendlies.  If that is Toronto - great.  If that is BC - great.  If that is Commonwealth - great.  We are moving in the right direction and playing games period should be the goal of the program.  It's hard to qualify for the WC when your team has no cohesion because they have only ever played as a squad a couple of times.

    if oseg doesn't work out i expect that the fury will have closed up shop and that td place will need something to fill dates as they want to turn landsdown into a money maker rather than pit. as a result i think they'd lease it to a cpl team. the only issue is who runs the team

    Brilliant draw, especially because I assumed Cuba would've been secretly kept from drawing either Canada or the US, a bit like how UEFA keep certain nations from playing each other. The Cuban team usually don't leave with the entire squad when they play up here IIRC
