Montreal Impact Tickets
The Montreal Impact is one of the most prestigious and decorated teams in Canadian soccer. The club was originally founded in 1992 by Joey Saputo, a Canadian businessman, as a member of the American Professional Soccer League. Montreal stormed onto the scene by winning the 1994 league championship in only its second year of existence. After Montreal transitioned to the United Soccer League (which absorbed the APSL in the 1990s), the club repeated as champions again in 2004 and 2009. Montreal is also the three-time winner of the Canadian Championship, which crowns the country’s best team, in 2008, 2013 and 2014. Amid this success, Montreal moved to the MLS in 2012 and soon became a playoff contender, reaching the Eastern Conference Finals in 2016. Ignacio Piatti, who joined the team in 2014, currently stands as the club’s all-time leading goal scorer for the MLS regular season. If you want to experience one of the top clubs in Canadian soccer, then you can purchase Montreal Impact tickets at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
