Any other Hamilton ticket holders going for seats in the supporters section?
Also really got to hand it to Forge, a free authentic jersey for each season ticket holder this season. Are other teams doing that?
I will be, and I will likely be the guy hauling around the bass drum around.
While that is a distinct possibility, given the team name is Forge, I'm likely expecting something along the lines of a Blacksmith.
Blacksmith Bobby it is!!!!!!
Love it see you there!
Looks like season starts end of April. Home it's warmed up by then
FORGE FC AND TIM HORTONS FIELD TO HOST INAUGURAL CANADIAN PREMIER LEAGUE MATCH – Forge FC
Love that we in Hamiltin grt the first taste of this new league
Now that MLS is expanding rapidly, wonder if Don Garber wants to push out TFC, VWC, and Impact in to the new Canadian league.
Doesn't Saskatoon have a really nice, new stadium?
Regina for football, the stands would be miles too far for soccer though.
Same day as a TFC game is a silly plan.
The CPL just announced their partnership with ticket master. That's a good sign, easy access to tickets!
No different than Ottawa, Hamilton and Winnipeg and they've got soccer teams.
And it's awful to go watch soccer in Ottawa for that very reason. Ugly and dangerous artifical field + stands very far.
Ottawa have small crowds and we will see for Hamilton and Winnipeg, Winnipeg especially with the stadium in the middle of nowhere and the stands even further away, basically you can't get any worst stadiums that those for soccer.
If they want to have succes, small 5k 10k stadiums for soccer only and real grass is the way to go.
And ticketmaster means very high fees for no good reason.
Real grass is well and good, but quite expensive to keep up in smaller markets with poor climate conditions. Unfortunate as it is, you tend to see a lot of artificial grass in countries that experience real winter (Scandinavia, Russia, etc.), or where there is grass it tends to look like shit. Not that I don't agree, soccer played on artificial grass always looks farcical.
If the season starts late April certainly they can have real grass in most places. Artificial field for soccer means less quality games and more injuries for players and an ugly look for tv and fans.
And for those who have never seen soccer in CFL stadiums I hope you will get back here and share your impressions after seeing games in Hamilton for example.
Concacaf Announces Scotiabank Concacaf League Expansion
Some more fun news
Actually there are different types of grass now, some that can withstand harsher conditions, like Desso Grassmaster is quite good, so really there isn't much of an excuse to not play on grass anymore.
Still expensive as hell.
Playing on turf isn't soccer though, dangerous and lowers the quality, so what do you want?
If it isnt soccer then what is it?
Pseudo Soccer, I refuse to watch it. It's ugly, dangerous and the quality of play is tremendously reduced.
Big announcement coming later tonight. Hoping it's something to do with viewing the games whether it be a tv deal or streaming service.
The league needs TSN and right now TSN needs it because they lost the Champions League Europa League and EPL, streaming services won't get you anywhere.
