... the reason I was told for the 8PM start was that traffic is so bad in the west shore that there was concern that people outside of that area wouldn't come as there wouldn't be enough time to have dinner and then get to the game.

 

Which is kinda dumb as the club, I would assume, want as many people as possible eating at the game.

True but if you have kids 8PM is pretty late for dinner on a school night.

^ Yes, 8pm is dumb. That's the point. If you want to increase food sales, don't schedule the games so people have time to go home and have dinner first.

Easton Ongaro, the FC Edmonton striker who stands six-foot-six, tormented the smallish Pacific FC defensive corps with two goals in a 3-1 Canadian Premier League soccer victory for the Eddies before 3,745 fans at Clarke Stadium on Saturday.

Brad Norris-Jones, PFC executive vice-president of operations, said Saturday’s game is “trending toward a sellout” of more than 6,000 fans.

 
 
 
 
 

“We have applied for grants to move the pole, which would then allow us to build the bleachers along the other sideline of the field,” said Manton.

 

Manton said the power pole could be moved by next May. The final 2,000-seat grandstand should be in place by the 2021 or 2022 sports season.

 

Also opening Saturday in conjunction with the stadium will be the Sarah Beckett Memorial Playground in honour of the RCMP officer, wife and mother of two killed in the line of duty by a drunk driver in Langford. The playground is located directly behind the main Westhills Stadium grandstand and in front of the Rugby Canada Al Charron training centre.

 

The Rotary Club of West Shore has been instrumental in the fundraising, which helped get the $250,000 playground completed.

 

“The rubberized surface of the playground is in RCMP colours,” Manton said.

It’s back in purple today, but in the sport the rest of the world calls football, when Haber and his PFC mates meet Valour FC of Winnipeg at 3 p.m. in a Canadian Premier League fixture. It will herald the official opening of the mostly completed renovations to the 6,200-seat Westhills Stadium with ceremonies that will include Premier John Horgan.

Haber headed home a Victor Blasco free kick on the initial play after being subbed in at 61 minutes to tie the Canadian Premier League game 1-1 against Valour FC of Winnipeg. Haber later hammered home the winner from the penalty spot at 81 minutes, after being taken down in the box, as PFC escaped with a 2-1 victory to the delight of 4,381 fans.

Rob Friend knows all about pressure. The former Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 star played 145 games in Germany’s two top flights scoring 39 goals for Borussia Mönchengladbach, Hertha Berlin, Eintracht Frankfurt, and 1860 Munich.

Playing in front of tens of thousands in some of the loudest stadiums teaches you both humility but also gives you confidence. It can also be inspirational. In Friend’s case, German football, in general, and the Bundesliga, in particular, serves as the greatest inspiration when it comes to his soccer club Pacific FC and the newly established Canadian Premier League.

We have repeatedly asked the club to install warning signs similar to those at other clubs (like Whitecaps), indicating that this section will feature singing, drums and smoke.

It should be pointed out that the two ends are both general admission and whoever this was was not "stuck" anywhere as unfortunately the stands were not sold out. There was plenty of seating they could have moved to.

usl team ottawa is averaging 4545

 

if you adjust for forge's home opener that was free you bring them down to 6250 per game.

 

whitecaps are averaging 20138 in an awful on-field season (6-13-9).

Why does soccer equate with such obnoxious behaviour, including the discharge of smoke (during a climate emergency)?

wouldn’t the smoke actually cool the earth?

singing drums and smoke does not seem too obnoxious.

Purple smoke confuses the earth, I guess.

In the days after 9/11 when air traffic was grounded, the lack of chemtrails contrails contributed to a wider range of temperatures - warmer during the day as there was less cloud cover reflecting the sun away, and cooler at night as there was nothing to keep the heat in.

 

Purple smoke simply indicates someone got too close to Barney with a lit cigarette.
