“Tell me why you deserve to have a Canadian Premier League side”, was what I said to @SaugaSG, on Twitter.
A special Coshcast as we sit down with writer and actor Kevin Claydon, who has a prominent role in the CBC’s new soccer-based drama 21 Thunder.
The Cosh meet James Hutton, founder of Barton St. Battalion, the Hamilton supporters club ready for the Canadian Premier League. We discuss everything Hamilton, CanPL, TFC, and the Canadian national team. Enjoy!
The Canadian Premier League is set to kickoff as early as next season, despite only two locations so far confirmed as homes to future clubs of the league. That being said, it is safe to expect news relatively soon for another six to eight clubs.
In 2005, MLS determined it was time for Toronto to be awarded a division one franchise, which Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment purchased for $10 million. Potential fans were given four choices in an online poll on naming the club. Sorry, but Toronto McTorontoFace was not an option.
It’s a very special Coshcast today as we welcome Paul Beirne onto the pod to talk about the Canadian Premier League and we’ve got more questions than Mike Flynn’s interrogators.
