    How many here have gone coast to coast by land? I have. English Bay to Saint John's Harbour.
    A lot of opinions from folks who have not seen their own country (not saying you @Kent but still telling)

    I know everyone is kind of ticked off by the new Subcription fee for The Island Games. But you've gotta love what OneSoccer is doing here. The investment is real and meaningful. DAZN is a better value for sure, but having Sharmen, Forrest, Larson, Dunfield, etc all come on board is a major win for OneSoccer and it shows they're actually building something people should care about. DAZN has the Premier league and Champions league, and a bunch of other leagues that are top notch but if they losts the rights next year to either of the big two, they're just Bein Sports.
    For me the Canadian National team and CPL are more important to me, and I love that some of the guys I grew up with covering this stuff will continue to do so on OneSoccer. 
    The next step is to win some rights battles on meaningful leagues. Target #1 has to be the Bundesliga, which is up for grabs this year. Scotland and Italy would be nice but are currently spoken for.

    Stopped by UPEI today to scout out a spot to try and watch some games live.  Not sure if it will be possible but I will give it a try.  
     
    Valour was getting a bit of practice time in while I was there.  Work was also underway to get the broadcasting infrastructure set up.

    @admin - do you know if it would be possible to get something promoting the V’s into the grounds?   It wouldn’t be for any profit, and would not be favouring any team so maybe they would allow it...? .   A banner hung in the playing area would be a cool addition.  I am reaching out to the PEI Soccer Association  (who are liaising with CPL) to see who I would ask if it is even possible.

    But that doesn't matter if you were born in a marvellous place
    I'm from a different generation, we hitchhiked across Canada in the 70s. That was a privilege, because we met people and did wild detours, and ended up sleeping in the oddest places (got picked up by a carney towing a ride who took us inside the CNE grounds and we pitched tent on a patch basically inside Exhibition Stadium, beyond the right field wall the first season the Jays played), but that world is lost.

    Your $20 per month solution sounds a bit grey market.
    I purchased the One Soccer yearly subscription last year and felt it was value for the money with CPL, Voyageurs Cup and national team games.
    My issues with this new plan is that it only runs to end of this calendar year. And the only confirmed content I'm interested in is the CPL and V's Cup (with no confirmed format and a rumored reduced tourney). Im not expecting the WCQ to happen due to  COVID. I'm not interested in Mexican or Spanish women's league.
    So its essentially $70 for at most 2 months of content.

    Valours INT players were a wash out.  I'd rather go with young CDN than bring in INT and have them **** the bed (I'm looking at you Hoyle).

    Bbeto reacted to ted in New away kits...   
    Pathetic. 

    As I posted to a PFC group:
    PFC Away jersey on it's own: looks really cool, love the lighthouse design.
    As one of the series of cookie-cutter jerseys: this is horrific and betrays a corporate mentality with no respect for football traditions or local autonomy.
    Come across a game on TV or online and you will have to play "guess the opponent" because other than one or maybe two jerseys that are actually distinct at a distance, they all look the same except for the corporate logos.
    Team colours should mean something and be easily identifiable rather than be relegated to accents. There was no need to change both jerseys in only the second year of existence and both our existing kits were fantastic. Sell us new merchandise all you like, but changing both kits is just a cynical, corporate cash-grab.
    The real test will be next year. If they make ANY kits changes for 2021 after the 2020 "season" they will deserve not one red cent of our money.

    ESPN wrote an article about the CPL restart. They also managed to not mention the CPL in the heading on their website. Instead going with Alphonso Davies is a miracle for Canadian soccer

    That would not surprise me at all.  When Gol TV Canada was telecasting some TFC matches a decade or so ago, they were drawing three figures at times according to a reliable source.  No numbers were released for Gol TV viewership of TFC games as far as I know.

    Quote from Cavalier FC technical director Rudolph Speid: “Why we love the Canadian League more than even the USL (United Soccer League) is that this is going to be the second season of the Canadian League and they have already sold about four players to Europeans clubs."
    Those transfers really do attract meaningful attention.

    Services for a league not playing, is that what you are arguing?
    For me it makes sense, if you are not playing, to ask Mediapro to carry over the CASH for next season.
