  1. This is what I expected. So long as the Harbourcats continue at Royal Athletic, there's a close to 0% chance of Pacific moving there. The Harbourcats are well attended, and have games almost every day through the summer.
  2. Don't know about the date, but the start time is better than the 8:00pm that it was originally. Anyone know we can watch the CL matches? I highly doubt it's on TSN, and I don't think MediaPro bought the rights (so OneSoccer is out)...
  3. I agree, they would draw considerably better at a renovated Royal Athletic. Any sign the of the Harbourcats giving it up anytime soon? Absolutely unrealistic in the near-to-medium term for D1. Much like Ted, I can see two D3 teams, one in Victoria & one in Nanaimo surviving fairly well alongside Pacific FC. I could also see a D1 (Langford/Victoria), D2 (Nanaimo), and two D3s (Saanich & Langford), depending on how everything plays out, post World Cup 2026.
  4. Forge’s Board is joined by AFC Curtis to discuss the results of the inaugural Spring Season of the Canadian Premier League. They evaluate the status of the league and picture what it may look like in years to come. The lads also discuss what to expect from the upcoming Fall Season and canvass the league for a potential dark horse. AFC Curtis also shines a light on the status of soccer in Manitoba and how it has been impacted since Valour FC was established. Listen on the NSXI Network.

  6. It’s been a difficult spring season for Valour FC in the inaugural Canadian Premier League campaign – there’s no denying that. For a team many expected to be competitive for the CanPL title right off the bat due to impressive depth in the front 6 and a plethora of quality individual talent, nothing seems to be working for Rob Gale’s side at the moment. One of those aforementioned quality individual talents is none other than former Montreal Impact player, Louis Beland-Goyette, who has been starting as the deepest midfielder all season long for the Winnipeg-based side – in a role known wid

  8. So you did. My bad. I was kinda just pointing out that just asking "downtown" is a pretty bad reference given the "regional" nature of some of the teams. The Cavalry example only adds to that (do you have to go through Silverado on the way to Calgary?)
  9. Are we going stadium to downtown of the city they're in, or downtown of the nearest city people from the far end of the country know about? Asking because Pacific is only 2.5 km from downtown Langford. You have to go through either Saanich or View Royal and Esquimalt before finally reaching the city of Victoria and its downtown. @ted Amalgamate already!
  10. Looks like there's still a very short, May-July, season. They do mention there will also be a Cup competition, which is a nice addition. When you look at the two other D3 leagues, PLSQ runs May - September (October if you include the Cup), and L1O runs May-August, plus playoffs into September. That would make this an exceptionally short season for a D3. I do find it interesting that they make special mention of FIFA wanting to move away from teams playing across borders. Can't help but feel that line is part of the fall-out from the Fury, and meant as a part of a push for the Highlan
  11. If the league launches 2020, they wouldn't enter the V-Cup until 2021. From the OP, the winner of the league would be entered (if this is approved by CSA). Can't have a winner before it starts...
  12. Definitely an interesting development. Can't seem to find anything more/new about it officially at this time. Wish we could have someone from TSS/Highlanders provide a silent nod that this info is not completely smoke. The Surrey group is likely Surrey United, who fielded a team in PCSL this year. Similarly, I would think Okanagan FC the likely Okanagan participant. I also find it odd that the original post would claim TSS have agreed to move out of Swanguard (to somewhere in Richmond) to make way for the Vancouver 86ers. I feel like this info, or at least the fra
  13. Clearly, it's the "Cool Professional League".
  14. In this episode, Forge’s Board discuss the status of the team after 7 matches, including their wildly eventful Voyageur’s Cup debut against Cavalry FC. View full record

  16. My kid's alphabets this morning spelled "OneSoccer" all on its own. They've tapped into cereal marketing!
  17. Valid point. Having experience as an event planner, I can tell you that booking venues, especially during the summer, can be insane. Given the switch of teams from regional to national/divisional, it wouldn't even be possible to pre-book the home matches for that 2nd season (as significant overlap is possible).
  18. Remember the Duanne Rollins Fantasy League? I seem to remember it being split very much in this way. Regional Leagues to start, with top 8 teams qualifying to the A-League, and others to a 2-division (East/West) B-League. There were 10-teams in either B-league, but this could easily be 8-team. At the end of the season we had playoffs with the top-2 from from B-East & B-West entered in the first round with the bottom 4 from A. The top-4 from A entered in the 2nd round. Two-leg aggregate. So in the end, you had a winner for each league, plus a champion from a final series of p
  19. I just received a reply to my inquiry with the PCSL. It seems two teams backed out of the women's league prior to (re)launch, so they shelved it for another year. The PCSL does not currently participate in the BC Cup (though I'm not sure why). @ted would have better knowledge in this area than I. According to the BC Soccer website, last year's BC Cup participating leagues included: Vancouver Metro Soccer League - www.vmslsoccer.com Fraser Valley Soccer League - www.fraservalleysoccer.com/index.php Vancouver Island Soccer League - www.visl.org Burnaby Men's Soccer League -
  20. Not for quite a few years now. The men's PCSL now has 8 teams, 6 in mainland BC and 2 from Vancouver Island. USL2's Victoria Highlanders play their reserve team in this league. The PCSL relaunched their women's league this year as well, which has 6 teams. That being said, they haven't said a word about the women's side of the league since February, so I have no idea if it actually launched.
  21. Yet again, HFX Wanderers will go to work at Wanderers Grounds tomorrow evening. This time, it is Valour FC making the trip from Winnipeg to the East Coast for the first leg of a Canadian Championship second round clash. Wanderers reached this stage by overcoming Vaughan Azzuri on away goals, after a nervy second leg at Wanderers Grounds saw the tie finish 3-3. This will be the first ever appearance in this competition for Valour, as they were gifted a first round bye. The only time these sides have met previously came almost a month ago, with Valour running out 1-0 victors in Winnipeg

  23. “And it’s like stars have aligned all in Alliance Heart of a lion, balls of Goliath” Ok….. I know, I know. I’ve been away and missed the first month of the season, my bad. But as the saying goes, semi informational and questionably entertaining things come to those who wait. What’s new? Well, what hasn’t changed? Sanjaxx are gone, which sucks for me as both the downtown clubs (Nitros), have quit the league in the last two years meaning travelling to every ground is now a hassle. But the ying to that yang is that Durham are back after taking a couple of years out. TFC3 also lef

  25. It's worth about as much as your constant comparisons of CPL to CSL: not one bit. That being said, thanks for the link to the museum. There's lots of interesting stuff on there. Not particularly relevant given literally everything has changed since the 60s & 70s, but interesting history nonetheless.
