What are you talking about? I would die to have a MLS club in Montreal!!

It's not because YOU don't like soccer that the other millions of people living in Quebec don't!!

Easily one of the stupidest comment I've seen so far!

I think the new stadium is OK but nothing spectacular! But I don't care, I'll go see Montreal FC or the OM few times a year for sure!

I'd go with Olympique de Montreal or AS Montreal (Association de Soccer or Association de Sport)

Anything else would sound too tacky. I hope they don't keep Impact, it's just not serious enough

Montreal FC > Liverpool FC

Hey, the view is great. People complain about it, but trees and Olympic stadium is always better than the Gardiner Expressway...

YOu know what I mean. Although people will go to the games, it'll just be some fringe sport in the city like the roadrunners and dragons were.

Didn't the Impact win their league championship, back to back a few years ago? I remember hearing something like that on the news I think.
I still couldn't name you one player on the Impact,and I could only name one player in the entire MLS and we all know who that is.

The reason more people play soccer than hockey has nothing to do with popularity. Soccer is easily the most popular sport in the world and every child, myself included has played soccer at some point in their life. It's because it's cheap...all you need is a ball and some grass. HOckey is one the most expensive to play, if you can't afford it, you learn to play hockey in the street.

The point is in North America, SOCCER does just not get popular at a professional level. It's viewed as a kid's game here.

That is your opinion, which is not shared by the majority of people.
Soccer is getting more and more attention... Maybe it has already been considered as a kid's sport but this is not the case anymore.

I think you have it all wrong. Montreal impacts have been selling out and TFC are doing amazing(Marketing wise). I think MLS team would be perfect.


At for the Stadium I think it could add a lot more seats if they wish to building a 2nd level on the bleachers and that open space that has the view of the Olympic stadium.

After this, can you guys imagine what kind of MAJOR LEAGUE sports city/place we might have been had the Expos got their damn stadium?

And what kind of sports place we still are?

- NHL Hockey
- MLB Baseball
- MLS Soccer
- A NASCAR race.
- CFL Football + NFL Exhibition Games (In Expos New Stadium)
- ABA Basketball (For what it's worth, it's beyond goofy to me.)
- Major Junior Hockey League & The Whole Development System Under It
- A Bottom Tier Pro Hockey League
- Teams In That Independant Baseball League
- Full Blown Collegiate Football (& Hockey, but nobody cares about that)
- Two world boxing champions, and two local promoters
- A world MMA champion, and a local promoter
- A very active local pro wrestling scene
- A F1 Grand Prix
- A Tennis Tournament
- A Golf Tournament

Nice.

This will be great for Montreal. The impact already sell-out, and now the team will be playing in a better, well-known league. With all of the different cultures in montreal, they will have no problem filling a stadium that holds 20, 000 people. People will love this. Im not sure if anyone has seen a toronto FC game on tv, but the fans are so into it its amazing. The location of the stadium does suck, but i dont think it will be an issue. I also heard it can happen as early as 2009 (team 990). This is amazing, it will do well for sure!

Nice, if it's true, 2009 would be sick. Right before the World Cup too.

Need to add a scoreboard. And have reserved seating. Went to an Impact game once and it was easily the worst experience of my life. Apparently buying tickets means you dont actually get a seat!!!! We had to sit on the grass, and could hardly see anything.

This could be good, but it could also fail massively.
