edmonton is embarassing themselves in this tournament....all the venues have looked awesome, but 55000 empty seats in edmonton was horrible and they have only sold 25 000 for canada's second game...30 000 empty seats for canada will be an embarassment and will blemish what is otherwise an amazing tournament.
i have long been a booster of edmonton hosting international soccer, (have made the drive a couple times myself to see soccer games in canada's finest stadium) but attendance at the last few senior men's games and now this, makes me glad that most future games will be played in toronto, montreal and vancouver in the not too distant future when all 3 have soccer specific stadia. (even if BMO is a plastic pitch, which is also embarassing)
