  1. Placing Sudbury in Western Ontario is hilarious. Also I don't think its happening. I admit, I forgot about this site. I guess I should either update it or shut it down, eh? There aren't very many who have stepped forward to be involved with this "group" (like 3, including myself and a guy in North Bay). There are zero credible rumours concerning a team in Northern Ontario. The most likely owner, Dario Zulich, is currently tied up fighting to get his Kingsway Entertainment District through the LPAT system. Until that's resolved, he's unlikely to explore the idea of expanding h
  2. One would think this is meant as a temporary loan, so I have to ask, does Venhola count against Pacific FC's 23-man roster cap? Also, with Ty called up, how will this affect the Highlander's record? They've been doing really well in USL-2 this year, so being down their keeper is probably going to hurt. I'm very happy to see some sort of mechanism is in place. Perhaps Highlanders will work as Pacific's de facto Academy. Could be a great working relationship if that's the case.
  3. I want to hit the like button for this very hard (but haven't had the ability to hit "like" on any posts for a while now). Not having any French coverage at NSXI tears me up, but we're volunteers so there's some allowances that can be made there. (Wanted: Volunteer French language writers & French-language content editor) The CPL & OneSoccer are not volunteers, and really should have fully bi-lingual coverage of all articles & matches. Given the content is heading to France next year, it's pretty disappointing they've opted to do absolutely nothing about a fairly large market.
  4. HFX Wanderers begin their first real run of home games this year with a test against York 9 FC. Both teams have struggled to pick up points early in the spring season, which lends added impetus to a match that both sides will hope to use to kick-start their campaign. Each side comes into this one off the back of a 2-0 loss, with Wanderers falling to Cavalry in Calgary and York dropping their home opener to Forge in a clash marred by brutal weather conditions. With the finish line somehow already in sight in this abbreviated spring season, this is a crucial match for both sides as t

  6. Heading into her third season of play in United Women’s Soccer (UWS), 21-year-old Emily Burns is as excited to start the season as she’s ever been. Fresh off her experience with Calgary Foothills WFC’s run to the semifinals of the 2018 UWS National Playoffs, the goalkeeper is ready to backstop her team to the championship. “I definitely want to see us come out of our conference and make it to the final four championships again like last year,” Burns said. “I want to see us get a better result than we did last year because we came up a bit short when we had such a great season and it

  8. The Purple Reign Podcast is a collaboration between Maxwell Mowbray (PFCOntario) and Xav Ouellette (The Hydro Pole). With both hosts building a presence on Twitter, they have decided to take on the world of podcasting. Together these two Pacific FC fans created a one-stop podcast for all things Pacific FC. Despite the hosts being 3300 KM apart, Maxwell and Xav will bring you all the latest news, rumours and discussion regarding VanIsle football. The second episode of the Purple Reign Podcast includes: A discussion on the 2-2 draw at the Pacific FC vs York9 FC match on May 18th, 2019

  10. If there are 2 Quebec-sides, I can also see a UFC-title fight styled announcements of the two clubs, with the Owners facing off head-to-head to establish the rivalry. That said, I expect it to be very drawn out, again. First we'll get one location, then another, etc. As they've already announced/leaked there will be new bespoke kits for everyone in 2020, they'll keep those for another fashion show, so we'll get to look forward to some renderings, a handful of early signings, maybe another location-specific round of trials, etc. On the "bright"-side, I expect most of it will be stream
  11. That would actually be a really good day to make the announcement. We would all love to have them sooner of course, but from a marketing perspective, that could be a great day for the CPL to trumpet Canadiana by announcing two/three more Canadian sides for our Canadian League that is for Canadians, by Canadians, etc. I don't think they'll wait quite that long, but I could see an angle that would work by making Canada Day also CPL Expansion Day.
  12. Die-hard York9 FC fan Eric Pronio brings his outspoken (and probably biased) opinions to the internet. Focusing on York9 FC, but also touching on all things CPL, Canadian soccer news, worldwide soccer news, and pop culture.

Eric also gets into the 40-man Gold Cup Roster for Canada, and has a quick preview of the second leg between York9 FC and AS Blainville. View full record

  14. Can confirm. Bagpipes are always heard at Pacific FC home matches. The Lake Side Buoys have a phenomenal piper.
  15. Huh... This image comes through with the Pickering location, but the original post and all the quotes of it are showing Dlive Inc. at 19450 Stevens Creek Blvd #100 in Cupertino, California on my screen... Weird error. Thanks for this new post though. It looks proper.
  16. Really? In California? I think you may need to check your map... Edit for those confused: Further down we discover it's only showing a strange location (19450 Stevens Creek Blvd, Cupertino CA) to me. We have no idea why.
  17. I'm pulling for HFX over Vaughan and Blainville upsetting York. As much as I would like Pacific to down Cavalry, early results in the Spring Season do not favour the Isle.
  18. All coaches are probably safe through the Spring Season. We may have a coach fired/quit/depart by mutual consent at the end of the Fall. After that, I figure all bets are off.
  19. Lots of games to review and talk about in this episode. We start off with the Whitecaps, and their WIN vs Colorado. Then we preview the upcoming game against their Cascadia Rivals— the Portland Timbers. After our Whitecaps talk, we bring you up to date with everything Pacific FC and Canadian Premier League!

  21. Bekker will be missed by Forge supporters (and many teams in the #FanPL), but the suspension is justified. Forge's loss to Halifax gives me a lot of hope that Pacific can beat Hamilton. Pacific will have McNaughton back tonight after his red-card suspension. I fully expect him to return to the lineup and McCurdy to return to the bench. Hopefully Haber stops aiming for the posts and starts going for the net itself. So many missed missed chances in the last couple matches, and he needs to get his follow-through down if Pacific are going to be fighting at the top of the table this seaso
  22. Well, if we're all going to jump on the "no" wagon... Nowhere in Northern Ontario? More realistically, I'd be quite pleased with a CPL-2 club in Sudbury & Thunder Bay. If we can earn our way into the top, great. If not, 2nd div will be quite good all things considered.
  23. by Robert Brown Canada coasted through the CONCACAF Nations League qualifiers with ease. The Canadians quickly disposed of the US Virgin Islands, Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis and French Guiana by a combined 18-1 scoreline. Although the opposition was relatively weak, John Herdman’s troop displayed their goal-scoring prowess. The CONCACAF Nations League presents a bonafide opportunity for Team Canada to compete against the best in the CONCACAF region. The inaugural competition spans through September 2019 to March 2020. Canada is in a group with proven CONCACAF opponents in

  25. Although Ben Fisk was born and grew up across the Georgia Strait in Vancouver, playing in Pacific FC’s inaugural Canadian Premier League game, a 1-0 win over HFX Wanderers FC at Westhills Stadium in Langford, felt like a homecoming for the 26-year-old. “Sunday was a pretty special one with all my friends and family there to watch,” Fisk said. “That was the first time in my pro career that I’ve had so many people in the stadium at one time and the fact that we were able to get the win made it that much more special.” After getting his start with the Vancouver Whitecaps’ Residency prog
