    2019 CPL All-Star game.

    Should we copy MLS or follow the top European Leagues which do not bother with an all star game. Hmm, tough one. Particularly when you consider our already short season.

    Pacific FC Launch / 2019 off season thread

    From the Valour website: Can’t make it to a match? You can swap your tickets for extra tickets to one of the last three matches of each season. Tickets may be swapped on a 1:1 ratio for best available seating of equal or lesser value. You have to scroll to the bottom: https://valourfc.canpl.ca/2019-season-tickets/#1539901311780-e487c33d-45bd

    Pacific FC Launch / 2019 off season thread

    Valour have the ticket swap thing but as usual the Bombers have imposed an annoying restriction: you are only allowed to swap for one of the last 3 matches of the season. I have not heard anything about the secondary market resale option.

    Canadian Premier League joins CONCACAF League

    Good point! I think the whole thing needs a re-think. It has clearly not been thought through carefully enough. Early days though.

    Valour FC - Launch / 2019 Pre-Season

    All the other attendances below 4,000, many well below 2,000. No wonder the league folded. CPL will need to do better than that. The 10,000 looks like an anomaly. And I don't think Valour will need to average anywhere near that to be successful. The Blizzard attendances were downright pathetic. Why would anyone want to bring them back? 😁

    For that matter, it could quite easily happen to a CPL team too: finish top 6 in 2019 CL and win 2019 CPL (if you accomplish the former you are surely a contender for the latter). Bingo -- you are now in 2020 CCL and 2020 CL. I really think it should be "either or", and in this case the CPL runner up should take the CL place. Your V Cup scenario is more interesting.

    CPL inaugural match - #1 attended match for 2019?

    You must have foolishly inferred that from the thread title.

    Valour FC - Launch / 2019 Pre-Season

    Definitely not consecutive days like that. Fri/Sun is a possibility but not on a regular basis. I believe it is extremely likely that out of the 15 matches included in a Valour season ticket, 3 to 5 will be midweek matches. One is for certain (Voyageurs Cup game, Wed 12th June). Heck, we even have the bye on the very first weekend! Full schedule should be out soon to confirm. I saw a tweet that suggests this week.

    CPL inaugural match - #1 attended match for 2019?

    I'd be interested to know how you think this thread will accomplish that lofty goal.

    Should Canada get more spots than the US in the CCL?

    No, he was on his meds.

    Are we going to get the entire season Robert? Just wondering.

    Playing the first matches a couple of weeks before your season starts is a disadvantage. Playing the first matches TWO MONTHS and a couple of weeks before your season starts is something else entirely.
