Montreal Impact Tickets
Hailing from Montreal, Quebec, the Canadian professional soccer team, the Montreal Impact has been making an impact of their own in the Major League Soccer (MLS). Even though they are one of the newest teams to join the league, the Montreal Impact, have been finding their own success since as the 19th MLS franchise and the third Canadian club to join the league. Although they made their public debut in the MLS in 2012 under the leadership of owner Joey Saputo, the team had more of a history as they began to come together.
News of the formation of the Montreal Impact first came about in 2007, however, it wasn’t until 2010, that the official announcement regarding the formation of the Montreal Impact was made by MLS commissioner Don Garber and owner Saputo. After months of work the Montreal Impact was finally ready to make their debut in the 2012 season and made a five-year agreement with the Bank of Montreal (BMO) who would be the team’s lead sponsor and jersey sponsor.
The club, who sports blue and white uniforms, embellished with a white and silver logo that features four starts and a fleur-de-lis, was ready to make their debut on March 10, 2012. The team played in their first even MLS game against the Vancouver Whitecaps FC; although they suffered a 2-0 loss, their freshmen season would prove to be one full of firsts.
During the Impact’s home game debut at their home stadium, then deemed Olympic Stadium, they attracted more than 58,000 spectators as they took on the Chicago Fire. The team passed the previous record for attendance of a professional soccer game in Montreal. However, the Impact’s popularity would only prove to continue when they brought in nearly 61,000 spectators for a home game against the LA Galaxy, where they made a new record for any professional soccer match in Canada.
During 2012, the team would eventually move from Olympic Stadium to their very own stadium, deemed Saputo Stadium. This stadium, also owned by the Saputo family, was completed on June 16, 2012 and as the Impact hit the field for the first time they beat Seattle in a 4-1 win on their new home turf as they began their attempts to establish themselves as a successful MLS franchise.
