I was reading that thread about what canada has to do to become a better soccer nation and someone kept on insisting that the NT stadium should be moved. I don't think so buddy. I bet Edmonton or Alberta in general has the best soccer in Canada right now. My friend from Vancouver just moved to edmonton and he tells me the soccer here is much better than the soccer in BC. I guess Ontario is probably our main competition but you guys have no stadiums! Plus the players coming out from edmonton alone is promising. If you look at most of the best young prospects on the calgary storm, they're almost all from edmonton. And they could probably have way more players from edmonton. Just look at the last canada games. Alberta killed the competition. If you compare Edmonton to Toronto I think Edmonton comes out on top because you have to consider the major Population difference. Just look at the new stars of Canada-Nsaliwa, Hirschfeld, and ofcourse Hargreaves.

Your buddy from Vancouver has probably moved from Vancouver to Edmonton to escape his crack dealer, thats why he talks out of his butt.

Nothing beats Vancouver baby!

I agree. Edmonton will get the occasional once a year nats match, but if you're really looking for a good soccer atmosphere and top flight Canadian club football then Vancouver by far is the number one city for Soccer in Canada.

The Whitecaps averaged 5,600 fans a game last year, and the Breakers womens team put in some solid numbers as well.

Edmonton? Well Edmonton has no pro soccer team.

If you're saying that the quality of talent is better in Edmonton, well, you may be partially correct there.

And if the Canadian association advertise billboards for the game instead of a small little logo on every Sunny D' then people would come! :)
