So let's forget for a moment about all the TFC confusion, chaos and disappointment, and instead once again turn to Canada for a little bit of hope and a way to feel good about yourself.
By now, you're presumably aware of all the games Canada will be playing this summer, and have already bought tickets and roped friends and family into coming along with you. You have? Excellent. But if for whatever reason you can't make it, but you still want to do your bit to ensure a pro Canadian crowd, well here's an excellent way to be able to do just that, by, as the title suggests, sending a kid to Canada v Honduras. The Voyageurs have teamed up with Toronto Community Housing who, as part of their youth engagement programme offering sports opportunities to those who'd otherwise be unable to participate, are hoping to use donated tickets to take as many people out to the game as possible.
Even aside from the feel good factor of helping those less fortunate, the more selfish reward is to know you're helping Canada. Last year, the crowd was overwhelmingly backing Canada, but there were still plenty of empty seats. This year, especially in the game against Honduras, those seats will be filled by opposition fans, so not only are you doing a good thing for some random kid, and hopefully creating some lifelong Canada fans who'll come back for game after game, you're actively ensuring one less Honduran there for that game, which is surely something everyone can get behind.
So there you go, even if you're not in Toronto, you can still support the CMNT. Click here, and for $20, send a kid into the south stand to cheer his or her heart out on your behalf. You know it makes sense.
