    Ottawa CPL Club

    View this email in your browser Concacaf Statement Miami (Thursday, December 13, 2019) - Concacaf typically does not comment publicly on sanctioning matters, but due to the lack of clarity regarding the state of the process and the unilateral statements from various parties in regard to the Ottawa Fury Football Club (Ottawa Fury) participating in the 2019 season of the United Soccer League (USL), we would like to clarify the following: Under international sanctioning rules, clubs that are affiliated to an Association may only join competitions in another Association’s territory under exceptional circumstances. For the sanctioning of such play in our region, approval must be given by Concacaf and FIFA; Concacaf to date has not received a formal request from any party to consider sanctioning the participation of the Ottawa Fury in the 2019 season of the USL, despite public announcements by Ottawa Fury that it would be doing so; In the fall of 2018, after unilateral public statements made by Ottawa Fury and before any sanctioning application was made to any governing body, Concacaf clearly advised the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) of its concerns regarding this matter. A further written correspondence to the CSA followed in November, providing guidance on our view that as it stands to date, we do not see exceptional circumstances, given the launch of the Canadian Premier League (CPL) for the 2019 season. As the governing body for international football in North, Central America and the Caribbean, we are committed to govern on behalf of all of our 41 Associations and key stakeholders.

    Sounds great to help the food bank in Mississauga but a big difference for the fans who paid $35 for a ticket and those that brought a couple of cans of beans.

    I don't remember Steven Hoyle but I've got him in some of my game reports. He played for Toronto Lynx PDL in 2013 in a season where they finished pretty decently with 5 wins, 7 losses, 2 ties for 17 points and missed the playoffs by 1 point (5th of 7 teams) behind two teams with 18 points. http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports13/13lynx03.htm Starting lineup pic he's behind the girl with the hand shading her face and a pic him taking the second half kickoff.

    MASL expands to Toronto (indoor soccer)

    Florida Tropics SC @FLTropicsSC Less than 10 minutes in the 4th quarter @saugametrostars lead 9-0. As a reminder the Tropics are without Silva, Parreiras, Teixeira, Touloute, Birche, Diegues, Laidley, Dos Santos (Guilherme), Franca, Ruiz, Montelares and Moojen. #MASL Mississauga shuts out Tropics, 10-0 December 8, 2018 by Brian Ackley Share MISSISSAUGA, Canada – The Florida Tropics fell to the Mississauga MetroStars, 10-0, in a Major Arena Soccer League game Saturday afternoon. The majority of the Tropics roster did not dress for the game because of Canadian immigration work laws, forcing the team to sign most of their players for Saturday's game that already lived in the greater Toronto area. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx LAKELAND, Fla. – The Florida Tropics SC have signed seven players that may be activated for Saturday's Major Arena Soccer League in Mississauga. Per league and team policy, terms of the agreements were not disclosed. Signed are: Edgar Gamboa, Mario Orestano, Marko Bedenikovic, Josue Jaramillo, Eduardo Jauregui, Diego Gonzalez, Nikola Miodrag and Milos Scepanovic The player signings were necessitated by fear of Canadian Immigration laws, which may hinder a number of Tropics players from crossing the border in time for the game. This type of roster activity is not unprecedented in professional sports which has seen similar travel issues preclude competition for athletes originating from certain countries. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx I recognize at least five of these guys from CSL (the outlaw league) when I followed it before L1O started. MetroStars won't have long to wait for their second home game as it's Thursday night at 7:30pm against Kansas City. I don't know what the media coverage will be. Will Rollins be there again? Neil Davidson who wrote some pregame stuff was tweeting Saturday from the MMA fights in downtown Toronto rather than being in Mississauga. Will Canadian border officials keep KC players from crossing?

    https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2018/12/10/emery-welshman-joins-growing-contingent-fcc-players-coming-mls Oooh. Looks like Emery Welshman won't be joining CPL. A story very similar to Kyle Bekker. Born one year apart. Both from the GTA...OK Bekker from Oakville and Welshman from Mississauga. Both drafted same year by TFC in MLS...both had time with Sigma FC...both playing for USL teams last year but FC Cincinnati moving up to MLS while North Carolina FC staying at the USL level. Welshman has played as an international for Guyana so that would bother some of the CPL domestic = CNMT eligible purists on here. I always bring a third guy into this....Greg Ranjitsingh a goalie for Sigma FC born in Scarborough ON who played for Sigma FC and won a second USL championship for Louisville City last year. He is an international for T&T.
  8. Could have been awkward if Jamaica hadn't been drawn as fourth out of the bowl because they couldn't be in Group E or F because of Canada and the USA. If Cameroon or Chile had been fourth I don't know how they would have explained why those teams weren't plunked as C-4. Hey and they played a Shawn Mendes song (There's No Holding Us Back) at the end there with break dancers rather than a French singer so a nod to Canada.

    Successful Halifax trialists the Rahman brothers..... https://www.bramptonguardian.com/community-story/7563236-brampton-s-rahman-brothers-find-a-home-playing-pro-soccer-in-Slovakia/ Will the league play them up as Pakistani internationals avoiding mention of their years at L1O team Pro-Stars?

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    Born in Burlington Ontario (says Wikipedia) and played for PDL K-W United. It was his father's place of birth of SKN that gets him the international chances. I'd bet he developed his skills playing for local youth teams in Ontario.

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    I wonder if they're again avoid mentioning Justin Springer's time with Vaughan Azzurri? The CPL owners bought League 1 Ontario so why keep hiding it? You get the feeling it shows off their great scouting staff. York 9's assistant coach Carmine Isacco would have coached this guy. http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports18/18l1o234.htm Here he is as recently as September 18th in a game against TFC III.

    TFC II 2019 Season

    TFC II's schedule partially released on USL site. Opener on the road Sat April 13th at 7:30PM vs FC Tucson. Home opener on Friday May 24th at 4:00PM vs FC Tucson. So they trade home openers (I'm sure with TFC II playing a lot of away games in between. From what I've heard at the L1O (Ontario) awards gala a few weeks ago, their home games will be up at the Training Centre.

    TFC 2 2018 season

    Earlier this week forward Malik Johnson signed for Tampa Bay Rowdies. He is age 20 and had made 75 appearances for TFC II between 2015 and 2018. 5'9" says Wikipedia. A few months ago midfielder Luca Uccello signed for Memphis 901. He is age 21 and made 77 appearances for TFC II between 2015 and 2018. 5'8" says Wikipedia. Tampa Bay plays in USL Championship (renamed from USL). Memphis is a new franchise just starting in USL Championship. It's TFC II that are self relegating to the new ten team USL League One. Interesting if they think this is an easier way to make it to MLS by playing at a higher level but cutting ties to the TFC organization which I expect will still promote guys into their MLS team directly.

    Toronto Blizzard played in the APSL in 1993 http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/93bliz00.htm Toronto Rockets played in the APSL in 1994 http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/apsl00.htm http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/apsl12.htm interesting story that these Toronto team owners had to support the sick franchises in Houston and Atlanta during their run. nothing in 1995 and 1996 then Toronto Lynx started in the newly formed A-League in 1997.

    Yeah why can't they admit that these guys played in L1O? I thought they were going to end that when the company that owns the CPL bought L1O. http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports18/18l1o118.htm June 24th Quarterfinal L1O Cup game between Woodbridge and Vaughan. Cavallini played 90 for Woodbridge.
