Figured I would start a thread as a catch all regarding the 6 Canadian PDL clubs. Calgary Foothills will host all Canadian TSS Rovers this week on Friday (7 PM MST) and Sunday (2 PM MST). Calgary will be streaming the matches live at the following links. I'm really curious to see the setup for Foothills this year as they are playing at yet another location.
Hey everybody, This thread will be all about my club and the exciting things we will be doing this season. ...beginning with my announcement that I am joining the WSA Winnipeg Front Office full-time. http://www.wsawinnipeg.com/index.php/news/110-lee-haber-joins-wsa-front-office Lee Haber joins WSA Front Office Co-founder will take on bigger role as Director of Business Development and Operations You may not know him, but if you've watched a WSA home game and been following the club you have definitely seen his work first hand. In Year 2, he intends to take the club to the next level off-the-pitch. In its inaugural season, Mr. Haber played a key part in everything WSA Winnipeg. A former player of Coach Badescu's, the two teamed up in late 2010 with the goal of bringing a PDL team to Winnipeg and eventually professional soccer. He wrote the club's business plan which helped them secure a PDL franchise. That only begins to describe his contribution to WSA Winnipeg. Those scarves you hoist above your head. He designed them. The website. He built, using his experience in web-design he developed in previous jobs. The crest that adorns every jersey, t-shirt, flag, etc. Yeah, that too. Mr. Haber did all this in his spare time, while he wasn't working full-time as a railway engineer in Montreal. In spite of all the great things accomplished in WSA's first season, the front office recognized that what was needed to grow the organization was someone who could work on the business side full-time. The McGill graduate jumped at the opportunity. He quit his job, said goodbye friends in Montreal and flew back home to Winnipeg. "It is my dream to be part of growing the game in my hometown," said the 24 year-old. "I am in a position where I can take this risk." "I feel [Lee] is the perfect person for the job," said Coach Badescu. "He has already contributed so much and I believe he will do amazing things for our club now that we have him full-time" As WSA Director of Business Development and Operations, Mr. Haber will be responsible for growing and managing the business-side of WSA Winnipeg. This what he had to say WSA Winnipeg fans can expect in 2012: "Last year we got our foot in the door and proved the naysayers wrong that said PDL would never work in Winnipeg" "This year we are taking everything to the next level" As for what exactly that entails, fans have much to ponder about.
