    2019 CPL All-Star game.

    I think it would be a great marketing decision to name an 18 to go up against a recognized European club. In year 1 though, as tight as the schedule is going to be, I can't really see where you'd squeeze the match in.

    Canadians abroad: February 15-21, 2019

    Actually in the grand scheme of things Hainault and Straith are the old and Henry, Cornelius, and James are the new 😉. In any case, both Hainault and Straith are fine options who have had plenty of time with CMNT over the years and proved to be solid but not exactly inspiring. I think we are trying to move past that level as a team, which is why we are trying to develop younger players into something more (which they may or may not achieve). If we were playing more friendlies I'd say call them up at some point but as it is I think we need to see what the young guys can be.

    Calgary FC launch/2019 offseason thread

    Looking at the Cavalry signings so far: 14 players signed and not a single one under 22. Still lots of time but they are going to have to sign (and find minutes for) some younger players at some point to meet league requirements.

    Pacific FC Launch / 2019 off season thread

    I know Hamilton has been selling seasons for months now, and I think Winnipeg too. Possibly the finished CFL stadiums and existing staff and infrastructure gave them a head start. Don't know about Valour FC but although Forge FC have not announced any official numbers I have heard sales are very strong.

    FC Edmonton launch/2019 offseason thread

    Don't think they need to sign any more forwards/wingers!

    CPL General

    According to the CanPL website where it lists rosters (where players have either a globe or maple leaf next to their name), Justin Springer is listed as domestic and Ameobi as an import. Blasco was originally listed as domestic but is now listed as an import. Just out of curiosity, are their any countries out there with leagues where domestic status is tied to national team eligibility?

    Canadian Premier League joins CONCACAF League

    It is not a good look but my guess is we will mostly forget about it as season starts. And then eventually it will be looked back on almost fondly as one of those absurd little nuggets of CanPL history.

    Canadian Premier League joins CONCACAF League

    You don't need any conspiracy theories about favouritism or anything else: this is just the CSA doing classic CSA things.

    Gets to play in Voyageurs Cup. Maybe Laval next year?

    Canadian Premier League joins CONCACAF League

    Will be a massive challenge with small rosters and a travel schedule already busy just with distances across Canada involved in regular season plus Voyageurs Cup. Especially in Year 1 with no roster familiarity to build on. Now just waiting for the league to announce Forge FC as token 2018 Champions due to Bob Young's influence 😉

    Especially if they have pee thrown at them. Get them prepared for the worst!
