Clanachan hopes to announce at least one new franchise for the seven-team league this summer.
"If we were fortunate, we could maybe get to two (franchises)," Clanachan said during a visit with local media at Saturday’s game between Valour FC and HFX Wanderers FC at IGF.
"I'd like to see somewhere [in the range of] eight or nine teams [in the CPL] by next year at kick-off," Clanachan said. "I'd be more than happy to announce at least one team [soon] to show growth in the league."
There was another interview in which he talked about an actual announcement but I'm too lazy to keep looking.
Think the issues comes from he horses being an all day event. People come and go at random times. Today everyone showed up in that same time frame. You would think with their experience in putting on events they could have predicted this however.
