Alright, this thread is dedicated to the league expanding into Canada. With the Canadian soccer federation's involvement, I have to think that Canada will have some expansion franchises involved at some point in the future. Who are the cities or franchises you think will have a team? Here are the top candidates. I included a team name and logo idea, just to get it started, and give some ideas out there. We'll start with Ottawa Fury, and end with Calgary Moonlight. OTTAWA FURY Team Colors: Blue, Red, White Comments: Ottawa currently has a reputable franchise with many fans. All they have to do is transition into the league, and take on some added risk. Will they? If so, how soon? FC Edmonton Team Colors: Shield Blue, Black, Maple Leaf Red Comments: This is a great location for an expansion franchise in Canada. You get the feeling Edmonton just may be in the league at some point. Will they have the same logo as the men? Or something different? Vancouver BottleCaps Team Colors: Blue, White (same colors as the Vancouver Whitecaps) Comments: It may not look strong for the Whitecaps to have a franchise in this league anytime soon. It could be like the Seattle situation. A franchise penetrates its way into the league, but it'll be a different team, same city. From Sounders to Reign. From Whitecaps to BottleCaps. People in Vancouver love to drink. It's gotta great ring to it. Vancouver could still have a franchise in this league, despite the situation with the Whitecaps. Vancouver Wilderness was also considered, due to its breathtaking scenery. Toronto Avalanche Team Colors: Winter Ice Blue, Freezer Gray Comments: It snows a lot in Toronto. And what a great location for a franchise. If Canada has a few franchises in this league at some point, you would think Toronto is assuredly one of them. Molson FC (Montreal) Team Colors: Red, Gold, Draft Blue Comments: Moslon was founded and operates out of Montreal. The perfect team name for a Montreal franchise. It would draw fans. Anything with the Molson logo in Canada is GOLD, especially in and around Montreal. The best GOLD jerseys in the league would be right at home at Molson FC. And if Molson wants to increase their brand among women, why not here with a sponsored women's professional team? Calgary Moonlight (also known as Goddess FC) Team Colors: Purple, Pink, Midnight Black Comments: Calgary is known for its beautiful bright lights and moonlight scene late at night. The fans would identify, and nothing has more of a feminine ring to it in this league than Goddess FC. This is a hockey city of course, one of the most passionate hockey cities in Canada. But there's room for a women's team here on the pitch. A catchy name like Goddess FC, aka Calgary Moonlight, will spark attention. The crescent moon could be shaped like a "C", to stand for Calgary. CONCLUSION: If Canada has at least four franchises in this league at some point, I expect Canada to equal the U.S. in total # of subsidized players. What that # could be at some point in the future, is beyond reason. Whether its 28, 30, even 32 players, for both USA and Canadian paid national team pool players (current and future development for young talent), it would make sense for Canada to have a few franchises in this league for their sake, to energize and grow the interest level for their fans at home (as this sparks more young girls to play soccer, and increases their future talent level). Who knows, maybe this is what it would take for them to win a WWC someday.
