  1. Here's the link to purchase tickets for the 2nd leg in the Wanderers section at the special rate. https://fevo.me/wanderers
  2. I'll be there. I think there is an away section. Contact David Finlayson with the Wanderers and he can set you up. I haven't gotten tickets yet, but will be doing so shortly. I think they reserved 250 seats and Langwa and Sukunda said they could fill half with family and friends. Ticket cost is $24, but I think they're usually in the $35 range. I've heard tale of some pre-game festivities too, but not 100% sure of the details.
  3. Wanderers Grounds is usually at or near capacity every game, but last night felt like the grounds held 15,000 as opposed to 6,200. Privateers 1882 reached a whole nother level and the main stand was really into it as well. I've been buzzing since last night. Have to admit I'm falling more in love with this club every day - not good for my stress levels. Too bad about the loss though - the ref left a lot to be desired and I felt like we deserved more. Looking forward to the away day trip though. York Lions and Spruce Meadows looked packed as well and both clubs did CPL proud! What a night for Canadian club soccer!
  4. Awesome! thanks for the heads up! and good points - we fully intend to be garbed out, so likely not a good look for anyone for us to join the SG haha. Another point though - we intend to have quite a few beverages, but don't want our slightly reduced decision making to impact kids and families. Are there any other sections we should avoid? I have kids and don't want to be the idiot in the crowd that taints the experience for the little ones. I've heard tell that the Privateers SG are organizing something though, so hopefully that all comes through and we have a nice little support for Halifax.
  5. Do the Fury have an away supporters section? Or is it fine to just sit with the Fury supporters? Booked flights already for the 2nd leg on July 24 and just trying to figure out seating options.
  6. Anyone have any insight on ticketing for Fury home matches? Thinking of doing an away day for the 2nd leg on July 24.
  7. The attendance at last week's Valour - Wanderers 1st leg in Halifax was apparently 3,854. I'm pleasantly surprised, as my high end guess was 2,500. This wasn't included in the season ticket package, so the numbers weren't boosted by that. Weather wasn't that great and the start time was **** (6:15 local), so maybe folks picked up tickets with the intention of going, but didn't venture out to the grounds?
  8. They followed my trek through Spain a couple years ago. 1 week in Logrono and 4 days in San Sebastian - gorgeous region. I tried to get my brother-in-laws family in Logrono to attend the match and support Canada as they live about a 10 min walk to the stadium, but it was too short notice. Watched the match and agree with UT - controlled the 2nd half, but the decisiveness in the box limited Canada. We seemed a bit rushed to get shots off and didn't take that extra second to consider options.
  9. Had a look back at the highlights and definitely looks lower than it felt in person. Agree with all your points as well - had a bit of trouble convincing my wife that I needed to pay extra for this game. Hopefully once the importance of the Voyaguers Cup is better understood by the general fan base, we’ll get better attendance. Brought a non-soccer buddy to the match tonight and had to explain the context of this match and the concept of away goals a few times. He’s been loving the matches so far though.
  10. Definitely not the crowd we’re used too, but thought we still had a decent showing from what I could tell in the stands. I’d guess around 2500. Privateers did a great job again, especially considering their reduced numbers. Main stand felt about half full.
  11. I think he's cover for both right now as I've heard they're on the bench with slight knocks. He's made some howlers on the defensive side, but other than that has been relatively steady.
  12. I'm not sure about other local news sources, but it's been bare bones in the Herald lately. I'd say the Hurricanes get more coverage through them than the Wanderers. I feel as though the majority of media coverage for the club comes from the local morning shows. I'm probably not the most informed on local news though, so I could be completely wrong and talking out of my ass.
  13. That was a fun game! Kudos to everyone for showing up on another rainy and cold night! Thought we deserved more; match could have easily been 3-1 or 3-2 for the Wanderers. The foul to call back Schaale's 2nd goal was ********, Perea hit the crossbar, and Arnone almost gave 5000 people a collective heart attack. Perea is very good at what he does - hold up play, dribbling in tight spaces to find the right pass and open up the field, his spatial IQ. It's very clear he's the man up front. Thought the midfield finally had some organization and cohesiveness - Simmons played well, Iida was Iida, and John does the small, almost unnoticeable things really well. His first touch volley to clear the box after a corner kick was absolutely perfect - I have no idea how he reacted so quickly to a flicked on wet ball. Schaale seemed to struggle a bit on the distribution side - think the wet field and ball troubled him a bit. Williams made some key saves and collected the ball well; although his clearances seem to get caught in this imaginary wind and hardly ever hit the half line. Nearly all of the goals (including yesterday's penalty) or half-chances we've conceded so far have been from low crosses - seems we shored that up a bit, but there were still some scary moments in our box. I'm not sure if Schaale and Arnone cleared those crosses better, or if York just didn't have the movement to attack those spaces like Cavalry, Forge, Valour, and Vaughn did. Have to say though, as the game went on, it seemed Bona and Langwa were preventing more and more of those crosses from coming into danger areas. No substitutions made by the Wanderers, so am a little concerned we'll see a lot of squad rotation on Saturday vs Pacific. At least there might be some sun!
  14. That's a pretty nice gesture. On the other side of things, Halifax raised the all-in price of my seat by $5 for the Cup match against Valour on June 5. Disappointed, but I still gave them my money....😒
  15. Heated seats would be kinda nice.....those steel seats have been pretty cold on my tush.
