Balls kicked in anger in Alberta



Canada's fourth fully pro team, with a salary budget of a million dollars apparently, got things started last night with a 3-0 win over the Montreal Impact reserves.

Aiming for 10,000 fans
FC Edmonton has brought in a quality opponent, but will the people come?
By Derek van Diest, Edmonton Sun
June 17, 2010

For FC Edmonton, the deal might have come together too quickly. Offered a chance to hold their training camp in Edmonton, where they were asked to play an exhibition game against a local club in its infancy, Chilean giants Colo-Colo jumped at the opportunity.

Now the hope is that soccer fans will jump at the chance to watch them play at (4 p.m., Sunday at Commonwealth)

“A good crowd would be over 10,000, but being realistic, I’m hoping over 7,000, just because of the late start,” said FC Edmonton general manager Mel Kowalchuk. “We’re hoping ticket sales would go a lot quicker, but we had a couple of glitches.

“We tested the waters to see what the public would buy and we put out what we thought were very good packages and the public didn’t respond, so we pulled back a couple of days ago and so we just focused on the Montreal game, and now we’re focusing on the Colo-Colo game and we’ve noticed a little bit of pickup in ticket sales.

“The fact that we’ve made it a lot simpler and cleaner is what we had to do.”

One of the most renowned teams in South America, the hope is Colo-Colo attracts a wide range of soccer fans to Commonwealth Stadium on Sunday.

There is a contingency plan in place for a large walk-up crowd.

“This team has produced tremendous talent and it’s something that I think our players are going to grow with it big time,” Kowalchuk said. “That’s what we wanted and we hope the public responds to it.”

While not in the same class, FC Edmonton is hoping to put up a spirited fight against their foreign opponents and build on the experience.

“Bringing them here, I think it shows Edmonton and all the soccer fans that we’re serious to where we want to go,” Kowalchuk said. “It will give our team a gauge where they are. After this game, I don’t think they’ll be afraid to face anyone in the world because they’re facing one of the top organizations and teams in the world.”

Back-and-Forth Affair Goes to Colo-Colo 4-3 in the End

With Chilean giants Colo-Colo playing 11 of their regular starters from the outset, FC Edmonton and the 5,500 fans at Commonwealth Stadium on Sunday knew that the match was going to be a huge challenge for the young squad. The first few minutes of the game were played, for the most part, in the midfield with a few chances going to the Chileans but both were called back on the offside.

FC Edmonton had its first half-chance in the third minute when a cross was sent into the box, but it sailed high over the heads of the oncoming strikers and went for a goal kick.

Portsmouth downs FC Edmonton in shootout

Canada’s newest pro soccer club holds its own through regulation before being edged by English side

Nadir Ciftci scored a goal in regulation and the winner in penalty kicks as English side Portsmouth FC defeated FC Edmonton in 5-4 penalty kicks in exhibition soccer action Wednesday.

With the teams tied 1-1 after regulation, Portsmouth beat Edmonton goalkeeper Rein Baart on all five of its penalty attempts.

Edmonton scored on Portsmouth backup goalkeeper Liam O'Brien four times, with Antonio Raga missing his attempt.

It was the fourth game of a summer tune-up for newly formed FC Edmonton one year before it is set to join the North American Soccer League.

Edmonton defeated the Montreal Impact and Ottawa Fury, and lost 4-3 to top Chilean squad Colo-Colo earlier this summer.

FC Edmonton Finishes the Exhibition Season With a Hard-Fought Draw

On a cold and dark night at Foote Field, soccer pros from the Sunshine State battled the frigid temperatures and came away from the frozen north with a hard-fought draw.

Miami FC, featuring a number of ex-MLS players and a few players in the US national system, the match promised to be a tougher test than FC Edmonton’s previous two games against PDL opposition.

FC Edmonton Names New Head Coach


FC Edmonton is pleased to announce the signing of its new Head Coach, Harry Sinkgraven. Sinkgraven comes highly recommended by former FC Edmonton coaches Dwight Lodeweges and Hans Schrijver.

“When Dwight and Hans first told us about Harry, we felt like he would be the perfect coach to pick up where the two left off,” said General Manager Mel Kowalchuk. “Harry has gone through the same Dutch coaching program as Hans and even has experience working with both Dwight and Hans back in Holland. We’re happy to get him signed and expect the transition to be almost seamless.”

FC Edmonton Pens Partnership with PMI


By Andreas Morse
FC Edmonton

FC Edmonton has come to terms with Playbook Management International (PMI) for the 2011 season. With this agreement, PMI and FC Edmonton plan to use all their resources to create a tradition, culture and fan-fare worthy of the FC Edmonton name.

PMI, led by Michael Hitchcock, has been successful in building fan bases for several MLS clubs and FC Edmonton General Manager Mel Kowalchuk sees this partnership as one of the first critical steps in working towards a successful launch of FC Edmonton in the NASL on April 9.

“We are extremely pleased to have PMI join the FC Edmonton team as we prepare for our inaugural season in the NASL,” Kowalchuk said. “The expertise and experience Michael Hitchcock and his team bring to FC Edmonton should help ensure our inaugural season is a success on and off the pitch.”
