MONTREAL – March 21, 2014 – Tomorrow’s game between the Montreal Impact and the Seattle Sounders FC has been postponed to Sunday, March 23, at 4pm (EDT) due to the procedural management of the main staging area at Olympic Stadium - based on meteorological conditions.
All tickets dated March 22 will be valid for March 23 at 4pm, including all season ticket holders.
Please keep in mind that events scheduled for the main area of Olympic Stadium are permitted only if the three following conditions are all met:
At 24 hours before game time, no snow over 3cm or frozen rain over 3mm is expected for the duration of the event;
