Little buzz here about this game. Negligible advertising. There was initially some level of excitement when the game was announced - that excitement has died down over the past months. Talking to a lot of die hard soccer fans over the past week - they just aren't interested because "Canada sucks" (in soccer that is).
Having a mid-week game won't help either, nor will the cold weather. I'll be there.
The media in Canada doesn't care either, and Sportsnet has reasons to be ashamed for telecasting a Boston-Detroit MLB game instead of showing a Men's National Team WC Qualifier.
Been a while since soccer in Canada has generated a buzz. The match against T&T drew well, but Canada was giving fans something to cheer for.
Hopefully with a good walk-up, a crowd of 15K can be reached.
Just a terrible way this all turned out. Waiting 4 long years for this, filled with optimism with a strong Gold Cup performance - then we get placed in the Group of Death, and of course, Dale Mitchell
