What would according to you be a true Soccer Club
I notice some confusion when it comes down to the definition of SOCCER CLUB in our country. Personally I think there's only one real soccer club in Canada and that is the Vancouver Whitecaps, because of their structure. They are the closes thing to what clubs around the world are.
What's your opinion?
If the Brampton Lions / Dixie SC affiliation were a full-on merger, that would be a proper Soccer Club. As it is, I'm happy.
Neither TFC nor Impact are clubs...they're just teams.
We desperately need more true clubs.
I agree about Brampton and Dixie but I think a club should also have a CLUB HOUSE where members and fans can get together and where trophies could be displayed.
Clubs have members, members participate in the clubs. They are not just season ticket holders. Such clubs do exist in many sports in the world, such as golf, even winter clubs, curling even.
All the others are sports companies, however attached the fans may be to their beloved enterprises and their owners.
