That would be great news to make it official,we pretty much heard all the rumors for the past couple of weeks.

Maybe after Milan and Fiorentina they have other games scheduled against Man U and Real Madrid? Saputo got connections

Haha, at least the poor guy from Washington made an effort, remember we just eliminated their hockey team.

Great news. Hopefully they change the name though, I never liked "Impact". It's too generic and doesn't mean anything, like Wild or Predators. A name change would also perhaps help with marketing the MLS team, since the name Impact is associated with second tier soccer, the casual fans may not realize why the ticket prices went up (they will obviously have to hike up the prices in the MLS). Olympique de Montréal would be awesome.

Either way, the Montreal-Toronto rivaly is going to be awesome.

Nice !

Congrats to the Impact !

My only concern is that there will be a huge raise to my season tickets.

Also, I hope that they will bring back the Carlsberg! (Soccer is not the same with Bud )

Now if you really want to start something.
Have the impact change to " le club de foot canadien. with the same as the Habs but instead of a H in the C use a F in the C and then apply for Quebec city MLS and YES YES call them le club de foot Nordic and instead of a hockey stick have a F hanging off the N.
then who cares about the league the place would be packed every game anyway.

Why? Olympique de Marseilles, Olympique de Lyon and FC Olympiacos don't seem to have problems with the IOC.

Awesome! I guess that means we'll see some better players coming to Montreal, too! Not that our players are not good... just that the MLS is a higher talented league! Also... DAVID BECKHAM IN MONTREAL!!!!!!!!!! Too cool. I want Montreal vs. Galaxy tickets, hehe.

Ohh.. I guess that means we'll be in FIFA 12 also?? OOOHHH YEAAAHHH!!!!

They were named Olympique before the IOC ''copyrighted'' the name Olympique. That's why you see these clubs still being named Olympique(even Olympiques de Gatineau). The only way to have our MLS club named Olympique would be to buy this team name :


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montreal_Olympique

It was a team that played in the NASL during the early 70s. Now to do that, I don't know if it's possible and if Joey Saputo really wants that. Remember, Impact is a name associated with 15 years of pro soccer in Montréal, 3 USL titles, 7 Voyageurs Cups and 1 deep run in the CONCACAF Champions League. Since that run, the name Impact is known around North America and Central America (obviously, for soccer fans).

Like Barca and AC Milan have done, maybe they could be named Club de Soccer Canadien and have the same colors and a slightly altered logo from the Habs. Barca and Milan have done it with their basketball, volleyball, hockey and many other sports team. It would be nice!

For that, the Habs would have to buy the Impact or be the ones who brought MLS to Montréal. The possibility was there when Gillett was still around and was involved with Saputo. But now, it's not possible since it's not the same club. And if so, it would have to remain Club de Hockey Canadien like the clubs you mentionned above or other european clubs. Fact is, we're in North America and the sport culture is VERY VERY different from overseas.

I didn't know the IOC owned the copyright, thanks for the info. It's a shame though. I guess we'll learn more tomorrow.

Yeah I definitely understand that, I was just throwing the idea out there. However, wasn't Joey Saputo part of the conglomerate the Molsons put together to buy the Habs? Thought I read about that somewhere when it all happened. That would make it possible.

And as far as we know, both teams could just be part of a bigger sporting club, Club de Sport Canadien or something, which would include Club de Hockey Canadien and Club de Soccer Canadien. I know it's very unlikely that it happens, but it would be a very cool thing. It would give the team an identity most people are already familiar with and colors recognizable by everyone. But I agree the logistics to make it happen would be very complicated.

It would be the best thing that could happen to Montreal professional sports right now. Saputo has an immense respect for the Montreal canadiens so as Pierre Boivin and the Molson brothers, it would be amazing if they make a bond of some kind and unite both franchises. Unity moves mountains and Montreal would definetely benefit from that in the sports scene.
