Figured I would start a thread to capture general news on League1 Ontario. Since these "regional D3 leagues" are critical to our emerging pyramid, I think we all have an interest in watching this league grow in the next few years, and produce local talent that can move on to the professional ranks. Anywho, FC London has announced they will have 12 games broadcast on Rogers TV London. I think that is a big development for a regional league. FC Londonalso had a sold out crowd at The Cove for their home opener, which means they've kept interest with the casual crowd during their move from PDL to L1O.
Looks like Thunder Bay Chill, K-W United, FC London and TFC Academy that they will no longer allow them to play in PDL as of 2017. Clubs are encouraged to join League1 Ontario. http://www.canadiansoccernews.com/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/24th-minute/ontario-gives-notice-on-pdl-in-province-r5507 Personally, I'm a fan of this move. I hate that Canada is so hitched to the US development system. More teams in L1O will hopefully mean better quality of play over time. Of course, the downside is that Thunder Bay doesn't seem like they want to go to L1O. I don't agree with their last point; one road trip out to Thunder Bay will not cause 14 other clubs (assuming FC London and K-W United join) to go broke... https://twitter.com/ThunderBayChill/status/667523415587319809 https://twitter.com/ThunderBayChill/status/667524664021925888
