    Sorry, are you claiming that the Fury would have more fans if the weather had been bad?

    I think you simply have to make the standard decision to not sell certain sections, leave them empty, or cover over unsold areas with advertising, like the upper part of the lower bowl at BC Place. Not seeing empty seats actually does put them out of mind.
    By overarticulating pricing by section, which I think is an error, you expose yourself to these sorts of gaps, as I see it. My opinion is that in larger stadiums, you have to reduce the variations, while in smaller stadiums, close to being sold out (at Wanderers, at Cavalry, hopefully Pacific), you can do more detailed variations on price by section.

    Pacific FC hopes purple reigns on home turf
    “All our seats will be purple, and all season ticket purchasers get a jersey, so it’s going to look great,” said Simpson.

    Speaking of seats, Simpson is adamant that 6,000 will be in place at Westhills Stadium in time for the franchise inaugural game April 28 against HFX Wanderers of Halifax. But he openly admits it’s going to be a race to the finish.
    “There are a lot of logistics involved, but absolutely the stadium will be ready for play,” said Simpson.
    “A lot of people are referencing the same situation as Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre, where workers were working up to the last minute before the first event in 2005 [a Rod Stewart concert].”
    Quipped Simpson: “There could be some wet paint signs.”
    But they will be in purple.
    Simpson said Pacific FC has surpassed the 1,000 plateau in season tickets and that more than 2,500 tickets have been sold so far for the inaugural game in the 28th.

    As someone who's lived in the U.S. for a while now I have to say...The amount you guys get charged in Canada for sports is BRUTAL. This isn't meant as a USA v CANADA thing, just an observation from some of the people on here mentioning what they spend on sports packages. That sucks! Hopefully OneSoccer does things with integrity.

    "Martin revealed the club is “going to get pretty close to sell outs” across the season, with less than 500 single tickets remaining for the club’s first home match against Forge FC on May 4.
    There are also fewer than 500 season tickets up for grabs, too, and less than 1,000 single-match tickets remaining for matches throughout the rest of the season.
    It means the Wanderers – who are currently in the Dominican Republic for pre-season training – head into their first season knowing that a strong base of some 5,000 fans will be in attendance week-in, week-out."
    Ladies and gentlemen, I dare say that the bar has been set.

    The exit fee is for a team wanting to leave the league, not sell the team.
    USL is very restrictive and what the USL franchise agreement states they can do as a franchisor is also restrictive so there may very well be limitations and/or restrictions on Ottawa Fury selling their franchise rights. Franchise rights are also territorial in USL so not so simple to sell a right for the Ottawa market to someone wanting to have a club in another market. USL owners Nurock would have to agree to the sale and that seems unlikely.

    The commish has to care about what makes most CDN hate soccer.  He is trying to get this league off the ground and he is addressing the #1 thing that makes people not watch soccer.  Arent we going to need new fans for the league to work and to grow the game?

    I know it's early, but does anyone know if the CPL plans to give the winning club/finalists prize money? Even something like 100k would be a decent boost for a new club, and would help towards creating some separation in the league. I'm not one for parity, I would like to see 1 or 2 clubs established as big clubs in the Canadian game, and rewarding winning clubs is a easy way to help that along.

    Teams sign a restrictive franchise agreement and must abide by the terms, Nurock runs the league operations largely as they see fit.
    A quote from Kartik K (who has reported on lower level US soccer for many years) on the USL :
    "The USL’s approach to its clubs and soccer structure is not only different than the NASL’s, but different than MLS and leagues across the globe."
