Even if they released plans for a season with no fans it would be better than this. My main issue with the league is in how poor the communications are. You spend money and buy tickets, and then hear basically nothing for months on end. I get it...it's a pandemic and things are up in the air, but at the same time I gave you money well over a year ago and we should hear something?

If this pandemic has taught me anything about you Slava, it's that you're a hard person to please and you're just going to complain anyways.

But I agree with you here. There's been a huge transparency issue from the league towards supporters from the start. We heard months ago that there was a planned start date of May long weekend. That's in less than 6 weeks. Just be up front with your customers. We all see the state this country is in, it shouldn't surprise anyone.

Cavalry themselves are okay, they have no idea of what's going on either. And any info they've managed to get they've passed on.

Yeah as a season ticket holder, I haven't heard in a long time what's happening with my 2020 payment and my 2020 seat. Sure would be nice to hear SOMETHING.

If they had announced any sort of plan and made it possible, I would have bought season tickets for the upcoming season.

The Cavs were training today. There's a video up on Facebook.

Sounds like there will be a season in some form to look forward to!

Yup, they announced their return to training today. I think that makes them, Edmonton, Halifax and Ottawa back to training officially.

Yeah, it might seem like just complaining, but the truth is Iíve paid for seats and other merchandise. Iíve supported the club because while I know there are going to be growing pains and issues like that, if you want these things in your city, you need to put your money where your mouth is. For some reason though, Cavalry just makes that so hard to do. Like all I want to do is support the club and basically give you money for things. In return, give me some idea of the plan is and keep me in the loop.

I donít know. I really want the team and league to succeed (expect Forge!). We all know and accept that even if they said ďhereís our planĒ and then had to reneg on the whole thing, that no one would fault them for it. Itís a crazy scenario and impossible to predict with certainty. But some information is better than none here.

Cavalry FC players are now calling season ticket holders. No specifics on a new season, but this bodes well.

In this interview, Norman identifies himself as a CB. So I guess that is that. Think our centre backs are set now with him, Trafford, Klomp and Yao. Could use another fullback now.

Roskopf was released today. Reasoning given "Despite best mutual efforts, due to the challenges and constraints brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, Cavalry FC and Matias Roskopf (ARG) have reached a mutual termination agreement which allows Roskopf to be able to be a free agent and play closer to home."

Well that sucks. I was looking forward to seeing him play. If it's COVID-related though, I guess we shouldn't be too surprised.

Sounds like Adekugbe tore his achilles during a training session. That's his second torn achilles injury, although not sure if it's the same one.

On the bright side, apparently Cavalry have already signed two new strikers who will be announced soon.

Ooooooo I like that signing. Big guy who can hold up play and is a decent distributor of the ball. Should link up well with the creative players out wide

Well done Tommy! Welcome to Calgary Anthony!

He's a CPL quality striker which gives us less questions up top at least. No offense to Roskopf or Selemani but they are unknowns until they play some games.

So glad that he's back from injury, and back with Cavalry. Hoping Pasquotti is next up.

I know other season ticket holders have gotten calls today but this afternoon I got a call from Oliver. They sure put him to work once he signed that contract!

I think it’s a nice touch that they’re reaching out to the community. Told him congrats on the contract and glad that he’s back
