I'm guessing floor issues is a cover up for a lack of tickets sales.

No it was definitely logistical issues with the playing field. I wondered how they were going to put in the nets when the one end at the Meridian Centre has raised steps behind the boards. Now I know.

MetroStars officials noticed there were issues with their boards when they attended an exhibition game between their team at Utica City FC Sunday night, according to Fantauzzo.

“The Canadian owner decided to look at the boards and realized that the boards in St. Catharine’s are very similar to the ones in Utica and unfortunately [discovered] they don’t have the right board system,” Fantauzzo said.

Fantauzzo then explained it.

“In simple lingo, the one side of the field where the Zamboni comes out of that is flush with the ground,” he said. “The other side, in most hockey arenas, is like a foot higher where the seats are. So, hockey arenas have been doing across the country, as they have in Utica, they have built a makeshift wall, an indoor soccer wall with a goal built into it. I don’t think that the owner of the Canadian MetroStars realized that until he showed up last night … and ‘Hey, wait, I might have an issue here.’ They looked into it and they were right. They can’t put the goal in.”

Great due diligence on their part

Maybe they should’ve investigated that before they announced a date there

Lol
