The table below displays the affiliation vote
Of the 106 teams that voted, Cascadia was the preferred affiliating organization. However, the vote between affiliating and remaining an unaffiliated league was extremely close, with more teams preferring not to affiliate. A majority of the teams voting for no affiliation indicated the casual nature of their team and the difficulty of maintaining an active roster of players and subs. Those voting for affiliation listed referee quality amongst their top concern.
We don’t want the extra step of obtaining a player card to be the end of teams, nor do we want to go through the process of rebuilding a new referee pool, so we will work on making the transition from our non affiliated status to affiliated as smooth as possible.
