    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    Damn, got my hopes up there for a minute!

    CPL Season Schedule

    100% agreed. I disliked it back when the Fury were in the NASL, and I dislike it now. If people find that playoffs overly reward teams who "get hot at the right time", A/C does it even more so. Winning streaks are suddenly worth more than consistency, and losing is less important than the time at which you lose. Please no A/C.

    *Deleted* Just because I'm in a bad mood, doesn't mean I should snap at posters here. I've said my piece on the matter, and support @Tigers motion.

    CPL General

    The Voyageurs Cup includes every professional Canadian club in the country (and some semi-pro clubs). It has a history spanning 15+ years. In Canadian soccer terms, that's enormous. On top of it all, the cup was funded by, and donated by, the most committed of Canadian soccer supporters, back in the days of few of them existing, and the CMNT playing its home matches in Kingston. If Canada gets two spots of different value towards the CCL, the winner of the Cup should get the most valuable one. If we want CPL teams to get an automatic-entry into the CCL, there's an avenue for them to do so: win the Cup. Be proud of doing so. Get your fans on board. I don't understand people who want to diminish the value of (what I judge to be) one of the biggest contribution of Canadian soccer supporters. We get it. Your pro-CPL extends to diminishing anything else happening in the Canadian soccer universe. You don't need to be a reverse BringBackTheBlizzard because of it.

    Nail your colours... 2019 CPL Edition

    Ottawa resident (need I say more?), so Maritime solidarity it is! Go Wanderers!

    I am starting to feel the same level of frustration as you are. CPL seems to keep overpromising and under-delivering. They mentioned up to 10-12 teams for season one at some point. We're at 7. They said kits were on the way... for April? They said schedule would come out in 7-10 days, and that is (I think) over 2 weeks ago now. Making this into a "Major Announcement", something that will excite the fans, when it's... a sponsorship? Meh. For the opening match, I hate to say it, but I think MLS has a nice formula where they announce the whole opening weekend ahead of the complete schedule. Was kinda hoping CPL would at least do the same.

    Calgary FC launch/2019 offseason thread

    Agreed. I believe it's now 9 of 11 players signed played in the PDL? I know we need to be realistic in terms of quality of players being signed, but especially considering the ticket prices that CFC are putting forward, this is, thus far, a tad underwhelming.

    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    Ouimette returning to play with Indy11, so that's another Canadian off the board for the CPL.

    HFX Wanderers launch/2019 offseason thread

    Those numbers are even more impressive when you consider that Halifax is hosting the Memorial Cup this year. That usually means a bump in Moosehead season tickets, plus the cost to attend the actual tournament. Good to see the Wanderers doing well in a competitive setting.

    CPL new teams speculation

    It is. https://www.adweek.com/digital/magic-trick-death-hoax/

    CPL Season Schedule

    In this article, it says that the season is expected to go from April to September. Frankly, I would be surprised if there were no matches in October. I feel like a 5 month off-season is simply too long. *EDIT* Probably not a bad idea to link the actual article: https://www.985fm.ca/nouvelles/sports/183333/la-nouvelle-ligue-canadienne-de-soccer-verra-le-jour-ce-printemps

    Ottawa Fury 2018 season

    Taking a look at the schedule, one thing I'm happy about is that, in July and August, there are only 2 afternoon matches. Still two too many, but at least nobody in the stands or on the field will feel like they're suffering from heat stroke.

    Ottawa CPL Club

    Was a season ticket holder last year. Don't think it was a stretch. What the stream basically never shows is the 2nd level of seating. Averaging about 4.5k seems pretty dead-on to me.

    Ottawa CPL Club

    Agreed. I think the bigger risk is if the Fury vs. CPL clubs matches during the Voyageurs Cup are competitive and entertaining, and fans start wondering why the Fury isn't playing against Canadian clubs more regularly. I can see people not really understanding or caring about the league, but wanting revenge against Hamilton, and not understanding fully why the Fury is playing against Loudoun instead.
