  1. I've only really watched Wanderers matches in detail, so can only say with certainty that Schaale and Langwa have been excellent, and N'sa and Bona have been nice surprises. Thought Borges has been tricky for Forge, and Bustos and Musse have been solid for Valour.
  2. Your foresight is impressive.....gloveless in Halifax on Saturday and that cold beer chilled me to the bones.
  3. I know the home opener is a different beast, but the weather was complete **** (3°C and raining) on Saturday and the stadium was completely packed. I, and the folks I was with, were cold and wet but had an amazing experience. As the weather improves and more people are exposed to it, I don't think we'd have any issues expanding a bit - maybe get highs in the 7000-7500 range for weekend games; mid-week games likely a little lower. I have 2 season tickets and will be taking my son to most games unless time or weather doesn't cooperate. Like this past Saturday, if he can't go I'll be taking a buddy. The buddy that came with me isn't really a soccer guy, but had a blast and wants to go to as many games as possible. I think the whole experience is getting people on board. The downtown stadium is key, the club has run everything extremely well, the pricing is spot on, and the Privateers are living up to their end of the bargain by providing an amazing atmosphere. I'm 100% sold on this already and am already making sure the annual budget has season tickets included for next year.
  4. Season tickets in Section 105. Inquired with the club and they noted the game time of 1pm was an error and will be fixed. No to the neutral section. I do know the club has a small section designated for away supporters. Contact Marvin Okello with the club if you're looking to grab some of those tickets. I can't speak to tickets for the match in Vaughn.
  5. Really good chat with Derek Martin from a trialist turned podcast host. One of the more interesting notes is that the kit design is already completed for next year and they'll be releasing new kits annually moving forward.
  6. My tickets in the centre circle app for the May 22 game against Vaughn show the game at 1 pm....on a Wednesday. This can't be right. Has anyone noticed similar scheduling for other weekday Can Champ matches? or know of an official schedule anywhere to verify the time?
  7. Apparently he had a trial with York 9, but wasn't offered a contract. His style of play seems to fit well with most folks interpretation of Hart's system; big CF with good hold up play and able to get on crosses. Highlights showed a bit of pace and good instincts in front of goal too.
  8. Those 2 colours are the same that were used for the flag give away, so I think folks are on the right track with Halifax kit colours.
  9. It's May 4, just in case you're booking flights tight around that date. I've heard Section 101, or a portion of it at least, has been reserved for away fans. Email Marvin Okello @ marvin.okello@hfxwanderersfootball.club to get some more info. He's great; set me up with season tickets and answered all my questions.
  10. Halifax had a similar issue with the Dusseldorf/Selects match. They were a bit tone deaf on the pricing vs quality (Dusseldorf sent a U21 squad, but the advertising stated "Bundesliga"), and after a bit of public backlash lowered the price of all tickets and issued refunds to those who already bought them. I'm sure Cavalry could do the same if it ever came down to it. Mind you, the difference for Halifax was $5, but most people seemed happy with the gesture.
  11. Interesting note on the league needing to approve Langwa's contract before Hart could provide the actual paperwork. I know nothing about this sort of thing, but know the discussion of team vs. league owned contracts has been beat to death around here. Maybe a hybrid?
  12. Maybe player announcements have slowed that number? Perhaps some folks see the squad as foothills plus some journeymen, so can't justify the sky high prices compared to foothills last year? Complete speculation.
  13. What happened with him at Celtic? Was pretty excited to see a Canadian sign for Celtic, then he just sort of disappeared?
  14. Maybe Yuma was the one who got hurt during trials? Interesting seeing Karklins signed. Played with him briefly when the Div 2 Halifax Soccer League was around and he was clearly the best player on the pitch. He most recently played with a bunch of guys I know from youth soccer on that Woodcocks squad and I’m pretty sure he was their ringer.
