    CanPL Opening Game - Group Tickets and Post Game Party

    As it sounds like there'll be a decent contingent leaving from Union Station via GO transit, should we maybe meet up and form a convoy?

    Thanks for the tips, gents. This is going to be one hell of a good time.

    And now it's official. Tickets booked with Via Rail to Toronto, will (hopefully) figure out how the GO Train works. Count me in! Next step is to contact James Hutton and actually get the match tickets. Has anyone gone through this process already? I mostly just want to know which will be the most lively rows to be in.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. My bad. Like I've said before, I really do not get southern Ontario.

    . . . honestly not sure what you're trying to say here.

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    Apart from agreeing with pretty much everything that's been said in the last few hours (sidenote: man, the fit hit the shan today), I don't think there's much more to say. And seeing as rational discussion and argument does not seem to have any impact on his fixation with decrying just about every aspect of the CPL, I'll simply add this: for anyone else who constantly gets fed up with reading BBTB's posts, this may help. https://twitter.com/EffinBirds

    Did you sources hint at when this big money deal might be announced? 😀

    Hmmm. The logic seems sound. #offkilter You know, I'm starting to like this approach. I may just need to keep an eye out for single ticket sales now!

    I'm tempted to head down as I've never been to the Hammer, and it *is* an historic match . . . but I kind of feel like I'd be selling out my Wanderers. I'll mull it over.

    Calgary FC launch/2019 offseason thread

    I think I just found my new favourite quote for dealing with BBTB.

    CPL TV Contract

    I know I'm not the only person on this forum that's not from the Greater Toronto Empire, but for what an outsider's perspective is worth . . . I really don't see what the fuss is about re: the scheduling of the inaugural match. Yes, it's a conflict, but realistically there were bound to be conflicts at some point anyway. Forge FC, York 9 and the CPL head office must have known this from the moment they decided to put two teams so close to TFC, but they still felt confident enough to move forward with approving the clubs. I'm honestly kind of shocked that scheduling conflicts are coming as such a surprise to everyone, and how this is somehow seen as an insult to local footy fans. I've also heard people here going on for ages about how Missisauga, Oshawa, Sarnia and a hundred other Hogtown suburbs I can never keep straight could each (eventually) support a club. If this is really the case, again, I don't really see why people are shocked and appalled that the inevitable scheduling conflict in the soi-disant centre of the universe happened sooner rather than later . . . or why everyone is scared that the Golden Horseshoe - that captures roughly one third of the entire country's population - won't have enough footy fans to attend each match. Besides, Hamilton has shown some of the strongest local, grass-roots support of any CPL city. And from what I can gather re: Hamilton's rivalry with Toronto in general, I'd imagine that even Hamilton fans of TFC would want to put their own club first, no? I'll never claim or pretend to understand the dynamics of Southern Onterrible, but to me it just looks like a lot of people getting flustered over a very minor issue. We have our league, we have our teams, we're getting our players, we're getting our sponsors, we have our first match, and (by the sounds of it), we'll soon have our broadcasting deal. That's what really matters.

    I feel like SN has been giving the CPL its most dedicated coverage by far, so fingers crossed that's indicative of deeper partnership on the horizon.

    CPL TV Contract

    I might be out to lunch here, but I seem to recall the NASL using a two-pronged approach with ESPN. Didn't they have all/vast majority of their games available through the ESPN app/streaming platform (whatever it's called), with one or two games a week also shown on TV via ESPN? If the CPL is able to go that route through Sportsnet-TVA Sports/TSN-RDS/CBC-Radio Canada Sports, I think that'd do the trick.
