|i was just wondering how much money on average a soccer player makes playing in the cpsl for a full season...
|Good question. I do not have the exact answer (i.e. the correct average salary). I will try to have that information assembled at the end of this season.
As an indication, I believe the players with professional contracts are making anywhere from $5,000 to $12,000 dollars for the summer.
|congrats you now have a website worthy of a professional soccer league...
my website, Nuke Soccer has regularly been reporting Toronto LYNX distributed news...
unfortunately there has not been any cpsl coverage..
this may change now with the addition of your new website...and maybe a continous feed from your media relations group...
got three questions for you...
1. your league info page mentions an OSA study "Image of the Game" completed in 1995/96....is it available on the osa website
2. how does one obtain a cpsl press pass..
3. do you have list of league stadiums and their seating capacities
Thank you for your comments. I have seen your website often and I know you to be very direct and forthright, therefore, your comments are credible and appreciated moreso.
I wish to congratulate you on your website and your coverage of the game. Please keep it up.
With regardsw to your questions:
1) I do not believe that the "Image of the Game" report is on the OSA website, however, if you would like us to obtain a copy for you, please notify myself or Stan Adamson at our office and we will be happy to oblige.
2)Please contact Stan Adamson to arrange for delivery of the media pass to you.
3)We do have the information in our files and we will summarize the information onto a list fand forward it to you.
I thank you in advance for your coverage of the CPSL and I have advised Stan Adamson to place Nuke Soccer on his distribution list for news.
|How do you access the match reports? Would be nice to have a listing of all players in a list and then to click on a player and have the players photo and bio.
|Presently, we are providing match results and intend to provide a short match report on every CPSL game played. In addition, we plan on providing video highlights of each game with commentary. There is a sample game highlight presently on our site under the multi-media page.
Your suggestion is a good one and in fact it has been under construction for the past two weeks.
Presently we have listed the team rosters and we will be linking each name to a picture and detailed biography. We hope to have this feature within the next few weeks. Please excuse us for the delay, however, with over three hundred players in the CPSL, it requires a bit of time to collect all the photos and information.
Thank you for your question.
|Hello Mr. Ursini.
I would like to congratulate you on putting up a beautiful website. I believe it will help in taking the CPSL into the mainstream of Canadian media, as long as updates are forthcoming and regular.
I work in Ottawa for the National Capital Commission and I strongly believe in the future of soccer in my community and in the country. I follow the rumors of expansion into the rest of Canada with great zeal. Perhaps some day I will make the jump from my relatively safe government job to join your organization and fulfill my dream of dedicating my life to soccer in this country...
In any case, thank you for the league, the website, and the product. Keep up the good work.

|Dear Mr. Gauthier:
I thank you for your very kind words.
Please let everyone know that you are not related to me or anyone else in the CPSL front office.
We would like to thank everyone for their patience and support for Soccer and for the CPSL. We are not so blind as to believe that we have arrived as a truly Professional League. We have continually worked on improving things as much as we can, and we know we still have much work to do. However, in small strides, not only the CPSL, but soccer in Canada and North America has gained more and more prominence, even though there was great resistance from many different camps and competing sports. With continued strides and all of us in soccer working to advance the game as opposed to our personal agendas, things can only get much better.
Thank you for your thoughts, and I expect our front office to grow in the near future and it would be great if we could house a soccer devotee such such as yourself. It would could count on people like you.
In closing, I hope our Administrator and Director of Media, Stan Adamson,is not threatened by my latter comments.
|Dear Mr. President, is the CPSL expected to form a women league by year 2004? If so, how many teams are expected to join this league?
|The CPSL is very interested in Launching a W-CPSL. The current owners are not only prepared to field teams for a Woman's Professional League in 2003, the CPSL is prepared to invest money and time/effort to get the Woman's league launched.
Unfortunately the structuring of a Women's League is much more difficult and requires a great amount of input at all levels of the women's game. This step must be taken with the co-operation and input from the women's senior amateur leagues and the various governing bodies. The current senior women's league would most likely be a primary source of players for the professional women's league and it is important to protect the stability of the senior amateur leagues.
There are meetings that are just being planned for the various groups that have an interest or that may be affected by a new women's professioanl league. I believe that we could have the new league launched by 2004.
On a preliminary basis, it looks like a Quebec-Ontario conference of 6 teams could be form. Once again this is a very, very preliminary start to the planned league.
In addition, the Pacific Coast League also has a very strong senior amateur women's league. In Ontario, the Ontario Women's Soccer League has been in existence for over 27 years.
In closing, the teams are ready to go, its just the structure and policies that must be properly established to avoid causing any problems to the existing senior women's game.
I truly hope we can get the women's professional league going as soon as possible. Many believe it will be more successful than the men's League.
Thank you for your question.
