No idea about what goes on in Canada, but I was given this link elsewhere, hopefully others can add some content to this thread and let us know what's going on in Canada.

Which is why I think this forum could be a very useful resource. Now go chat to your buddies over there and get involved in the local community.

I can't believe you guys didn't know this! lol He came for a visit back a while ago...missed it though :( The headquarters for this is about 2.5 hours away from me...closest I will probably get to meeting a player :( It isn't a bad website though, and they feature ties at the local pub...again not local to me, but an experience all the same :)

VooDoo, how do you get to watch any ties? It took us forever to get satellite in order to see any! Hey, maybe you could be honorary chairman for a Calgary spurs site! ;)

BUMP=>>>>:grin:

I'm moving to Banff for the ski season later this year and am very keen to find out where I can watch Spurs games up there.

Can anyone from Canada on here, preferably the Banff/Lake Louise area help out:shrug:

I'm in Calgary Canada. About 45mins from Banff. Fox sports Canada tv station has lots of soccer. But if your looking for all the EPL games then setanta is the channel to have. ( it still exists in north America, it's $15 a month CDN) they show basically EPL game everyweekend and all the English and FA cup games. Etc

Hi 'voodo' I'm a Spurs fan and live just west of Calgary in a place called Cochrane....yes you are correct about Setanta, and they are pretty good. Even if you don't catch the game live, they run every Prem. game later on throughout Saturday. There is also ESPN local channel #27, they also show games on Saturday morning as well.

Hey all you excellent Canadians - never realised there was such a strong Yid contingent over there, despite having a few Canadian mates, they're all into Hockey :|

Anyways, i've heard there's a group of Canadian youngsters onsite at my work next week, all attending some kind of event that sounds like it's been organised by Spurs and, at some point, i've been told that a few first teamers are going to be showing up to meet them. I've had a gander at a few Canadian Spurs fansites but none seem to mention this scheme - does anyone know more about it? I could only get very vague details, so it might just be a company over there that has ties to Spurs, we all know that the squad attend a lot of kids events, or visits to schools n hospitals, so it wouldn't surprise me at all.

that was all really, so if any of you have young'uns who are staying on the outskirts of London next week, on a football/Spurs scheme, then i hope they have a fantastic time :up:

Wondering if there are any spurs fans in the area of Owen Sound, most shirts I see here are manure and l'arse. Bad taste if I say so myself...I will wear my shirt proud and scowl at the less fortunate
Owen sound is in Ontario...

A lot of Spurs fans in Toronto. I've seen over 40 in the pub at some games. Spurs Canada is recognised by the club itself being official and all that stuff. If you're a member they can almost guarantee you a ticket to any match too!
