Agree on logo and colours but name and field location are fine

 

The primary crest is horrible but the secondary mark (the trident) is awesome and the colours are fantastic. They will stand out as very distinct in the league.

There are many parking lots as you approach the stadium that are all used by big box stores.  I think the plan is to allow everyone to use those spots.  It will all be in one area so you'll need some patience.

And while I’m on a grumpy rant, and actually watching the Whitecaps lose 2-0 right now on TSN.. what a boring sport. Only with world bragging rights on the line is there some intrigue and drama. Nearly impossible to get a shot on goal.. or have any meaningful series of passes completed. It’s a game of a 1000 broken chances, and a few fleeting seconds of excitement.

They need to follow rugby’s lead, reduce the number of players to 7 per side and allow changes on the fly like hockey. I


Yeah soccer is very boring to watch, I think most people just pretend to enjoy it to larp as Europeans or something. It’s a fun game for 5-12 year olds

I don't like contact sports at all, so Soccer is one of the ones I actually can watch on TV and enjoy.

 

Baseball on TV is liking watching Golf on TV.........boring. 

 

Auto Racing I can watch for hours and never get bored, and the same goes for water polo (soccer in the water), gymnastics, fencing, and track and field.

"Simpson said the seating components for the 6,000-seat Westhills Stadium expansion are being shipped from Germany and that the stadium will be ready for game action before April 28.

 

“They will piece together like Lego,” said Simpson, who came out of Juan de Fuca to play pro soccer in Europe and earn 43 caps for Canada.

“We will be game-day ready for soccer. But the polish and beautification of the area around the stadium [which is planned to include several fan plazas] will probably not be completed until May or June.”"

Stew Young says the expansion of Westhills Stadium will be done on time and on budget. CFAX,
