The Impact joins other MLS clubs that have already confirmed their presence in Florida: Philadelphia Union, D.C. United and Sporting Kansas City.

“It’s a great tournament that will give us the opportunity to play games against familiar MLS clubs,” said Montreal Impact sporting director Nick De Santis. “It will be a good three weeks of preparation for the group before the start of the season. At the same time, it will also give us a good idea of the opposition for next season.”
