如果没有粉丝才出席,2020年将没有Cascadia杯

ECS,Tim​​bers军队和Southsiders同意不计算闭门落后的比赛。

Cascadia Cup在其核心,是由粉丝创造的竞争。创造它的三个团体 - 翡翠城市支持者,木材军队和南方人 - 不仅为物理奖杯自我支付,但甚至创造了法人实体为了确保粉丝总是控制它。

鉴于历史,这一点令人惊讶的是,三个支持者的团体一致决定有效推迟奖励Cascadia杯,直到粉丝再次参加游戏。

联合声明来自组织还重申,将来授予奖杯的进程将取决于所有三支队伍都能够互相游戏的团队:

“MLS是返回锦标赛”的正式宣布后不久,Cascadia Cup委员会的代表一致同意落后于闭门的比赛,包括任何未来的比赛,其中MLS体育场不存在,不会依赖Cascadia Cup Standingsin 2020. In order to continue the supporter-owned, supporter-driven Cascadia Cup’s tradition of competitive balance, each club must complete both home and away matches against each of the other clubs, and the 2020 season will be measured in the same manner as any prior season where all three teams were in the same league.

虽然肯定有一些关于这个决定的刺激,但我认为这是正确的。是什么让这场比赛特别是粉丝与之交流的方式。简单地说,授予空体育场前的奖杯会感到不错。它也会觉得相当毫无意义。

I’m sure there will be those who will argue that playing without fans is no more illegitimate than awarding the trophy when only two teams were eligible — as was the case in 2009-10 when the Sounders were playing in MLS without the Timbers or Whitecaps — but I beg to differ. While I agree those seasons were probably less legitimate than the other 14 times the Cup was awarded, at least fans were still able to present the trophy and celebrate it in person.

在类似的水平上,我认为MLS也应该推迟今年的支持者盾牌冠军。

在其核心,Cascadia杯和支持者的盾牌是联盟和玩家与粉丝互动的方式。如果粉丝不在狂欢中分享,则竞争对手失去了大部分使其特殊的东西。在闭门而不扮演闭门,没有粉丝可能是必需品,但我们没有理由假装它是正常的或者它是一种以粉彩为中心的方法。承认这一点不应该羞耻。
