  1. Here is the Facebook event for Round 2 in Montreal: https://www.facebook.com/events/4351809781498078
  2. We had an OK turnout in Montreal, all things considered. Doing it again on Tuesday!
  3. Is anybody actually advocating for this? What would be the advantage? Except for the MLS players, the entire squad has no league matches for at least two months after the Gold Cup. The only reason I can think of would be to save the superstars (David, Davies, etc) from potential injury. Or maybe to give some of the lesser players some extra field time, but the Gold Cup seems an inappropriate time for that.
  4. Because there will still be way more Canadian fans in the stands, obviously.
  5. By the way, given the large size of the Haitian community in Montreal, the Haitian team might actually prefer to play in front of fans at Stade Saputo rather than at an empty stadium in Chicago. I use Montreal as my primary example because a sports team (Canadiens) already plays in front of fans in that city. Also, I happen to live there 😉
  6. It would be played in front of fans. Montreal currently allows 2500 in stadium venues, including Stade Saputo. Also, the CMNT and Haiti teams would have had roughly the same time to prepare as the NHL teams, who are adapting just fine.
  7. I would like to see some reasonable explanation for why the "home" leg of the Canada-Haiti series cannot be played on home soil. The Montreal Canadiens and the Vegas Golden Knights can freely travel across the border for NHL playoffs and play in front of a live crowd in Montreal at Bell Centre, starting Monday. So it stands to reason that the Canadian and Haitian national soccer teams should be able to do the same and play in front of a live crowd at, say, Stade Saputo in Montreal, on Tuesday.
  8. This thread is for announcing viewing events for the Canada-Haiti matches. In Montreal, we will be gathering for both games at the usual location: Bar Frappe 3900 Blvd St-Laurent. A Facebook event is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/363226371884627 The bar has a very large upstairs patio/terrace with many separated tables and plenty of room for social distancing.
  9. It would be really nice to see some upsets in the Saint Kitts & Nevis / El Salvadar and/or Curaçao / Panama matches. Sure would make the Octagon a lot easier, should Canada make it past Haiti.
