Player Appearances

In pursuit of encouraging youth development, the Montreal Impact focuses on a solid professional and competitive team supported by the community. The club has opted to support and encourage events that revolve primarily around the quality of life for children by addressing needs in the fields of leisure, health and education. The club has been actively involved in the community and will continue to make public appearances an essential component of our community outreach efforts.
We do our best to respond to all requests, however, it is challenging to coordinate appearances because of our intensive training, travel and match schedule. The club is unable to fulfill many requests due to scheduling conflicts.
If you are interested in having a member of the Impact participate in your event, the following information will explain our guidelines and procedures to assist you with your appearance request.

GUIDELINES:
