I am happy to report that the Cascadia region of North America is taking the first steps to assemble our FA and team.
We are currently planning our first general meeting for January and may possibly have an observer at the February NF-Board general meeting in Munich.
We are interested in hearing from anyone who may help assist us in the steps which will need to take place prior to and during the application process to the NF-Board.
We are especially interested in hearing from any other FA's in the Americas which have successfully become member FA's of the NF-Board.
We also have reached out to CSANF in South America as our acting secretary is fluent in Spanish.
Cascadia is one region in North America where football is very popular and league matches this season drew on average 43,000 with nearly 70,000 for games between rival Cascadian clubs.
Beyond club rivalry there is a common bond between the fans of clubs in Cascadia that we are all part of something special in this part of the world and as such Cascadia flags and tifo is present at all games here.
Cascadia is also a region where neither the US nor Canadian mens national teams tend to play despite massive support for the sport on the club level.
Even before the team officially exists the shirts have become popular and can be seen at club matches:
Also Cascadia flags began replacing American and Canadian flags on club shirts since 2011:
This has only helped fuel the Cascadia identity as we are an isolated bio-region with our own sporting culture.
