Yeah there's potential for every club to own a colour (as above in that graphic), but there's also a chance we see Edmonton in navy, Valour in black, York in grey, Halifax in navy... which would be a very dark league overall.

York in grey would be a huge mistake in my opinion......not that they asked for mine, lol. 

 

The first game in Hamilton (side note: I'm going!) would look great with orange v green.

Any news on a broadcasting partner?

Nope. 

 

TSN has been rumored since day 1 but that was also when the rumors were that each CFL owner would basically own a team. Mediapro has since come in and I wouldn't be surprised if there is a "game of the week" kind of deal on TSN and the rest of the games are streamed. 

 

Hopefully we find out more soon, we're just over 3 weeks out from the start of the league.

Sorry for spamming the thread....but it just seems like a CPL day.

Anyone following this thread may find this podcast interesting.

At the 26 min mark they talk a little about the uniforms but don't really give us much other than "they look better than MLS"....sadly.

All signs point to the kits being anything but boring. Whether that turns out to be ugly and over the top, or unique but classy, remains to be seen.

First teaser.  Boring doesn't spring to mind....

Looks like a mix of traditional and some boundary pushing.

Came to post that picture too :)

 

I'm most excited for Pacific's look. If I'm seeing this correctly it looks like they have a purple shirt and a teal shirt....both unique looks.

Can it be a Canadian league with out a team that wears red? Asking for a friend.

Great to see that WestJet's logo is only in white, Otherwise it would be a mess. Pretty classy look overall.

So....quick thoughts while the stream is going. 

I think I like the white York 9 shirt the most. But overall complete look is a tie between Hamilton and Pacific. I don’t think there’s a bad look in the bunch.

My only real criticism would be a few of the collars but overall really pleased with the variety and look.  I was bracing myself for first generation MLS.

So few notes:

- CPL has only two teams with white kits, in contrast to nearly half of MLS teams. So the CPL is following the "traditional" model of both kits being different colors.

- Same advertisers on 2 teams, which was expected with anew league. England's Championship has teams that have 32Red as an advertiser, so that isn't a huge issue.

- Macron being York9's shirt ad is rough

- Pacific FC & HFX Wanderers have the best looks in my book. Definitely going to buy one of those jerseys. 

Overall it's a pretty good looking league. Some classic style looks (Cavalry FC, Pacific & HFX) and some non-traditional looks (York9 white, Valour, Forge) will make for nice looking games.

I don’t mind them, but I can see why you’d say that. I guess I like the “different-ness” (if that’s a word)
