    Valour FC - Launch / 2019 Pre-Season

    Is it possible teams are coming to town to play a double header. Game Friday night and again Saturday afternoon? Save on hotels and travel costs.

    Valour FC - Launch / 2019 Pre-Season

    Well my rep when discussing tickets said Valour would only have home games on Fridays and Saturdays. I asked when buying tickets because I have special needs kids and needed to know what kind of schedule we would see before I could commit to tickets. I hope he didn't sucker me into buying tickets by lying to me.

    This was my concern going in with the ownership group here. Non-soccer people trying to run a soccer team. It was clear when they scheduled season ticket selection during the National team game. This isn't a knock on the work Rob has done but rather the front office being run by people that seem to have a limited knowledge of soccer. As Winnipeg Fury said they need to be out in the soccer community.

    I agree with you but not just with the Bombers and Valour. I seek very little if anything about the league anywhere.
  5. Great player, why you so happy to see her get of Washington?
  6. Where did you get they removed him? Last I saw he was prepared to leave Canada to coach a men's team but stayed because the CSA offered him the men's team. From everything I read he no longer wanted to Coach women's teams.

    Valour FC - Launch / 2019 Pre-Season

    In talking with people, some are holding off for the reasons you mention such as no players, no schedule, no publicity etc. So the number could hit 2,500 as this progress. But some are scared to put out money as they are still unsure this league will not get started or fold half-way through the season. Also as mentioned some feel the club is not being run professional with the lack of contact from the owners. The club not knowing a National team game was on during the seat selection. I supported the Winnipeg Fury even after CSL folded and they moved leagues and I saw real soccer people get burnt with that team and this one makes me and others nervous. I'm not sure if the problems are at the league level or the club level or both but it's not far from the start and they real need some serious marketing to make this work.

    What it does tell me is that non-soccer people are running the team and if it that is the case in most cities, it's a recipe for disaster for the league. It's not just the National team they are competing with. The Winnipeg Jets are home that night as well. This league was hyped about developing players that could some day play for the National team. I shouldn't lose my priority in line over supporting the National Program. If the people in the office are unaware the National team is playing that night, they are not into soccer and that scares me.

    I must say I'm not impressed with Valour FC for scheduling my seat selection during the men's National team game. I thought this league was about promoting Canadian players and the hope to play for the National team. What a huge marketing mistake. Really disappointed in the Club.
  10. The CSA is hyping the men's game because it's a home game that they are trying to sell tickets for while the women's games are just being streamed. When the ladies have home games, they get plenty of hype. This is all about driving ticket sales.
  11. I think Quinn can play Scott's position and maybe add a little more offence.
  12. Nothing in the TV listings as of yet.

    I wonder what the accurate number for founding members is? I noticed they are giving out Honourary Founding Member #55 to Mark Scheifele. I know Andrew Harris of the Bombers and Desi Scott of the National team are also members. None of these people are around for the summer and are they paying for tickets? Not trying to be negative just wondering how accurate the numbers are.

    CPL Season Schedule

    Here in Manitoba it has been play regular season May and June with playoffs in September. The Premier teams take a few weeks off in the summer. Personally I like playoffs. I found it quite fun to follow Toronto through to the championship in MLS. The old Canadian Soccer League had playoffs and I enjoyed that as well. I will adjust but I would prefer it if possible.

    CPL Season Schedule

    I see no playoffs. Do you think this is a good idea in a country that has playoffs for almost all sports. Hockey, baseball, football and even soccer for kids and adults is the normal.
