Usually developmental tools like this take 10-15 years to develop players on their own as it's better to develop a player starting from a younger age than starting to develop one when they're older. Usually sport development cycles need a decade or so to provide direct export benefit.

AFAIK Pacific have been the most active with local associations.

To be honest, if Regina were to ever get a team, I really hope they wouldn't play at Mosaic. With the smaller crowd, the atmosphere would not be good. IMO, with some expanded seating, Liebel field would be ideal.

Yeah, 10 years makes sense. The PFC have also taken over (assisting with) development the BC Soccer Premier League (U14+) local teams - I understand. It will be great to see some results.

Meanwhile - I picked some of this today, by Russell brewing - hope it's good!

It will taste good the first time because of the branding. At least that's what your brain and taste buds will be telling you. After that it will be like any other beer.

That's a good price. Last week I bought a single Coors Light can because of the old school raptors theme on it. I enhanced the experience by wearing the old school Mitchell and Ness raptors t-shirt I got from Winners the previous week.

York9 have sold Estevez to Eredivisie club ADO Den Haag for a rumoured $150K.

Valour financials are out via the Blue Bombers annual report:

Revenues: $2.8M
Expenses: $3.0M
Revenue over expenses: ($211K)

Was expecting losses higher than this so it's a pretty good result, IMO. Teams were expected to lose money for first five seasons or so. If I had to guess i'd say Valour would be in the middle of CPL teams financially, with three doing better financially in year one (HFX, Calgary, Forge) with three below (Pacific, EDM, Y9). Some teams, like Pacific, were investing heavily in stadium infrastructure which was an expense Valour did not need to undertake.

They lost money so I guess the business model doesn't work.

The Canadian men's national team will certainly be another great beneficiary of the flourishing new league. The CPL will not only inspire a new generation of players, but also provide a first-class environment to develop their skills and to get on-field experience. To pay special attention to the development of domestic and young players will definitely help to produce and grow the suitable player base for the Canadian men's national team. This approach is expected to have positive results in the upcoming international competitions, and the CSA’s men's national team is especially looking forward to having an impactful performance “at home” in 2026.

In summary, the league expected there to be challenges in its first year of operation. However, a solid foundation has been established from which to build upon in 2020 and beyond. Here to stay, the Canadian Premier League, and of course the 2026 FIFA World Cup, will definitely help to further establish Canada as a football nation
