  1. Just wanted to correct you that Mississauga isn't getting a team. Toronto is getting a team that will play in Mississauga but doesn't want to brand itself as Mississauga.
  2. Torontonians won't be supporting this and neither will Mississaugans. MASL will fail. As for the claim to have TFC SG's supporting them, I'd like someone to confirm if this is true considering that the CASA group also used Voyageur images without permission in their advertisement so I wouldn't be surprised if they're making up stories to try to garner more support and ticket sales.
  3. wow that's a crazy price for an unknown game. $50.00 for Platinum should also include unlimited poutine & burritos and open bar starting from 2PM until end of game.
  4. Sad that we lost with those chances that we had but boy am I ever looking forward to watching this amazing team grow! We have so much young talent and the future is certainly looking bright for us! Never have I seen a Canada with that drive and determination to the very last whistle
  5. It's been a very long time since I've seen our boys play like this. Finishing 2nd in a group with CRC and HON is respectable and I'm proud of them. Can't wait for the next match and bonus that we get the extra day of rest over El Salvador or Jamaica
  6. I have never seen CMNT play this well and while I'm proud of a tie versus this strong Tico team, I feel that we could have had this game and the extra points. Aim for 3 pointd versus Honduras. I like how Davies is playing without fear and didn't let Gamboa push him around during that little kerfuffle early on 2nd half.
  7. Canada has proven that it's capable of hosting football tournaments and making money, most notably WWC in 2015 and U20 WC in 2007. I think it's time to have Canada host a Gold Cup in 2019 or 2021 and allow bids from with Mexico joint bids from countries like Costa Rica & Panama, etc. Not all countries have to host it but there should be more than 'Murica
  8. A very important topic that hasn't been touched yet is the potential pricing of beer, or maybe I missed it in all the madness of these forum. What's a fair price point for beer? I know there is a faction that says "who needs beer to enjoy sports?" and while I support your right to that view, I'm of the opinion that I enjoy catching a buzz while watching sporting events with my friends. I've been to many games at BMO field and it always pissed me off having to pay $15 for a Large watered down draught beer or $11 for tall can of Bud. Last October I was in London and went to watch WC2018 qualifier between ENG vs MAL at Wembley (amazing experience) and the drinks were £5.00 (so about $9 with exchange) but even so for a local that's an affordable price. Only shitty part was that no booze allowed in seating area because the English are known to throw their cups of beer onto the pitch so you have to chug them back. Taking into consideration the need to turn a profit, I think a fair price point for regular Molson Canadian or Budweiser is about $6-7 for tall cans or $9-10 for 30oz large beverage. Add an extra buck for premium beers.

    A Modest Idea

    $500 steak dinner plus plaque it is. Can they accept vacation or gift cards?

    CPL Season Schedule

    A 8 team league with everyone facing each other 4 times (2 home and 2 away games) means 28 matches. Saturday, May 4, 2019 to Saturday, October 26, 2019 is 26 weeks. I would suggest Saturday, April 27, 2019, to Saturday, November 2, 2019 which is 28 weeks. Following the example of other leagues around the world. We could wrap up a season within these 28 weeks with weekly league and CPL/Voyageurs Cup matches during the week over 4 match days starting in July. If we have one week where league matches are held on a Wednesday and Saturday, then league could be wrapped up by Oct-26. The cup final could be on Nov-2nd and the final can be played at a host city alternating every year (similar to Grey Cup, UCL, FA Cup, etc). See below for sample league cup schedule, assuming the CDN clubs in MLS aren't included since they play in an american league. match day EAST WEST 1 (July) A vs B C vs D E vs F G vs H 2 (Aug) B vs A D vs C F vs E H vs G 3 (Sep) <A vs B> vs <C vs D> <E vs F> vs <G vs H> 4 (Oct) <C vs D> vs <A vs B> <F vs E> vs <H vs G> 5 (1st Sat of Nov) West vs East edit: alternatively, we could have 4 weeks where league matches are played on Wednesday and Saturday and then have the 4 Cup Match days on Saturdays.
  11. the full schedule is available here: http://www.tsn.ca/fifa-confederations-cup-on-tsn-schedule-1.767576
  12. Is it still too late to award it to Australia? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_soccer_stadiums_in_Australia They have 5 stadiums that have over 50,000 capacity and 4 more stadiums between 30,000 - 49,999. They were a close runner-up and if anyone can pull it off in a short period of time, it would be a civilized country like Australia.
  13. I would have no issue paying $500.00 for an annual membership that includes season tickets, a sliver of the ownership and voting rights on the general direction of the club. In terms of a TV deal, TSN has lost a lot of sports with the NHL and Blue Jays moving to Sportsnet but they've been able to maintain a strong soccer presence. I can see TSN & Bell/CTV playing a huge role in providing revenue to the league from TV/online exposure but in the initial years, it wouldn't be as lucrative for the league. If every single CanPL match can be televised to a national audience through CTV & TSN and they ensure that none of the games overlap, you'll find that a lot more people would watch more matches. IN terms of kit sponsorship, I would hope that each team can find their own local sponsor rather then one sponsor for the entire league.
  14. Uber is the worst in MTL! what time are people heading from bar 99 to the stadium?
  15. Anyone taking the megabus? Also will we be getting e-tickets?
  16. Longtime lurker, first time poster. I just bought 2 tickets for my first CMNT match and will be coming from Brampton. I'm a TFC fan but won't wear the kit to Saputo stadium since they're not playing. How many people are going from Toronto area? Are there any hookups/group deals for cheap hotel or motel rates? Where is good place to buy CMNT kit in the GTA?

    Toronto CPL

    I'd support any Toronto or western GTA club by purchasing season tickets. Preferably a Mississauga FC playing out of renovated Centennial Park Stadium.
