I would definitely agree with that statement and article by the guardian. Just look at the third post of this thread.Biff88 wrote: ↑Dec 8th, 2016 10:56 pmNot sure I agree with the statement of soccer fighting for relevance in Canada. Soccer has been relevant for over 50 years.
For those of us that have followed Toronto FC from day one 10 years ago, we know about the sellouts and scarcity of available tickets even duriing all of those lean years when they were performing very poorly on the pitch.
Now that they are in a championship game, people that never paid attention to it before are talking like soccer is something new...well it's not new.
Obviously soccer isn't new, its the most widely played sport in the world and Canada as a whole isn't at that level yet, they still think hockey is everything.
