The supporters group there has no excuse. There are endless songs, nicknames, and references available to them for all types of situations. It won't get any easier than that.

Sounds like Ticketmaster is jerking the club around, right before season ticket calls are supposed to go out. Not sure what this means for member calls, but might be a bit of a delay.

Just a heads up more than anything.

Hopefully nothing too serious. Team needs to keep the momentum going.

Sounds like season ticket calls are underway. I haven't been called yet, but I know member #26 has.

That's good news. I'm #210, so I'm hoping this time tomorrow is when they'll call.

Some info I was able to snag from
- Games will be a mix of Friday night, weekend and holiday Monday games. Will "depend on broadcast schedule". No word on who the broadcaster is.
- The club has lots of interest from bars around the city for bussing supporters to games.

I got an email just now saying that they’re a day behind due to an issue with Ticketmaster.

I received the same email, so I don't think they got very far this afternoon.

Interesting. Looks like he's from Brazil, so good chance not someone capped at the top level like Halifax's T&T contingent. Would be awesome if he has some youth NT experience or any experience with some decent South/Central American clubs.

I took the plunge and I can't say that I'm not excited about it! I hope that the league is well supported and it's successful. From the talk with the person for tickets she seemed to think that they would have a fairly full stadium with just the season ticket holders by the time they contacted everybody.

And I can't believe that they've managed to sign Neymar!

If Calgary can manage to bring in an Oscar-calibre actor like Neymar then I will getting season ticket for sure.

...or they can bring in a 40-year old Ronaldinho. I am ok with that too.

Must be one of those guys, why else would they hide some no-named chap's face?

I don't remember him much when he was on the Fury, but people I know who follow them rated him. Random fact, he was actually choked out on a plane by another passenger when he was with the Fury.

Does anyone have an indication on where the team is at on contacting members? I haven't received a call or an email advising of delays, but I'm hoping something comes up soon.

I'm 287. The email they sent a while back said they'd call today, but I haven't heard from them yet. Must still be a bit behind schedule.

I know #169 was called this afternoon. I imagine they are also being called back by people who originally miss their call. Think it'll take a few weeks to get through the full member list.
