Apr 20th, 2017 by aftn at 9:54 pm

Part two of Sunday's mammoth two and a half hour CiTR radio show is featured in this episode of the podcast.

After looking at the State of the Whitecaps in Episode 188, we turn our attention to the Canadian game.

With the Three Amigos 2026 World Cup bid officially announced, we look over the details and what it may mean for the growth of football in Canada, both in the build up to a successful bid and the legacy from it. Was the bid fair? And what may the tournament look like here?

We also hear thoughts of MLS Commissioner Don Garber talking about what bringing the World Cup to North America will mean to the domestic game and how he's seen the game move on here since the 1994 World Cup.

With the Canadian Premier League set to start next year, we also chat about how that's shaping up and what we'd like to see from it. We talk with TSS Rovers owners and coaches Colin Elmes and Will Cromack about why they chose to start a PDL team now and whether we could see them move it to the Canadian PL one day.

All this and the Sultans of Ping FC return for our Wavelength section. Have a listen.
