  1. Will try to aggregate as much info RE: Saskatoon club in CanPL as I can here. Most recent article (I believe): https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatoon/recreation-pitches-city-1.4296670 Focuses more on stadium presentation than anything else but that pres. was done by Joe Belan, who is the primary in the SK ownership group. Please link any new info you find on SK/Saskatoon.
  2. We've been hearing rumors of salary caps anywhere between 500K to 1.5 million bandied about here. I think someone mentioned that they heard one players phoning England and asking his dad if he could live on $50K in Canada. An annual salary of 40 hours a week at minimum wage in Ontario is $29,120. If we assume these will be the base salaries for players in the league, what can we expect the actual cap to be? What should the cap be? Should they have designated players or a Luxury tax? Hard or Soft Cap? How many players at what levels? I would like to see discussion in here based on the news that comes out over the next few month and try to piece together the actual cap despite all the smoke and mirrors. For starters, I think I would like to see there be some flexibility in roster building between teams, but i want to see a ceiling and a floor. I also want to see lots of U-23s on the roster. So what about having "buckets" of players with their own maximum and minimum salaries? For example: Core Players ($400K max total, split between 1-4 players, minimum salary $80K): These are the marquee players that ownership signs for their skill level to get butts into seats, and make that one play every game that makes it worth the price of admission. They can be any age or nationality. Standard Players ($620K max total, split between 9-11 players, salary range $50-80K): These are the everyday starters that fill out the majority of starting lineup. They have to be under the age of 30 and at least half of them need to be eligible to play for the CMNT. U23 Players ($380K max total, split between 8-11 players, salary range $30-50K): These are the college-age players that are trying to play their way into better circumstances. They should be paid above minimum wage so they can focus on skills improvement rather than needing to work an extra job to make ends meet. Some of them may play for USports teams in the fall and the CSA/CPL should come to an understanding with the universities that they will be able to retain their eligibility. They have to be under 23 years old as of Jan 1st of that soccer year and must be eligible to play for the CMNT. U18 Academy Players ($5K max total, 0 to unlimited players, paid per game): These are the emergency players that the team calls up when the team is either riddled with injuries or as a reward for exceptional play at a lower tier. Some clubs might have a team and some might not, instead having agreements with a local pool of clubs that meet the CSA LTPD guidelines. As with the U23's there should be an understanding with USports that they will still be eligible for university play. They have to be under 18 years old as of Jan 1st of that soccer year and must be eligible to play for the appropriate level of Canadian National Team. A system like this would be flexible in that teams can be comprised of anywhere from 18-26 salaried players and a team salary cap from between $770K to $1.4 million, meeting the requirements of owners with a variety of ambitions. It would also guarantee that at least two starters per team will be Canadians or Canada eligible. Edit: Hmmm, just a thought: Should there be a coaching salary cap as well?

The competition will additionally now serve as the qualifying tournament for Central America clubs to the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League. “We are very excited to take a major step forward to enhance our expanded Concacaf Club Competition Platform,” said Concacaf General Secretary Philippe Moggio. “We are creating a larger Scotiabank Concacaf League that will increase the opportunities for our members in the Caribbean and Central America to play more relevant, competitive matches. With 22 teams participating, the window of access is wider, providing greater chances to qualify to the region’s premier tournament for clubs, the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League.” The competition, which will continue to be played in a knockout format, will now kick off with a preliminary round in July.

Inaugurated in 2017, the Scotiabank Concacaf League has opened the door for a wider participation of Caribbean and Central American clubs, providing them an opportunity to play more relevant matches, at a higher level and the possibility of qualifying for the Confederations premier competition for clubs, the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League.
  4. With the CPL coming together, I've been thinking about whether the league will go with an MLS/Addidas style deal or one where the teams find an outfitter themselves. I personally like a league with more variety of brands and styles, but if the league chooses one, I think it's important to make the right choice. The league will need the jerseys and team gear to not just look good on the field, but on the streets, pubs, schools, and basically, anywhere fans wear them. It's going to be an important part of creating a culture around this league. I think Nike or New Balance would be best for this. What are your thoughts? Do you prefer a league-wide outfitter or teams having their own? Do you prefer any brands?

  6. Hey folks, I figured instead of just spamming other groups and pissing people off, I'd just start my own little thread(anyone else who wants to add their own concepts is more than welcome as well!) to hopefully come up with ideas for potential CPL team concepts and get feedback. Anyways, here's what I've been working on recently, as always, appreciate the input Also, if anyone has ideas they want to see tried, I'm all ears.
