The first MLS game of Year 2 will be played on March 2 in Seattle, but the Impact’s season officially begins February 27, at a private event. The organization will highlight the club’s 20th anniversary that night and kick off the 2013 season.
Here's what you need to know about next week's event.
Full roster unveiled
Just three days before the start of the season, all players and coaches from the 2013 edition of the team will be introduced.
A new jersey
A new season brings with it a new jersey. The Impact will unveil its third jersey, which pays tribute to the club’s history. The jersey will be available at the online boutique following its unveiling, as well as at the official Stade Saputo boutique the following day.
A contest for supporters
Five lucky supporters will be in attendance for the event thanks to a Facebook contest. Each winner will be given a pass for two for the event.

As this event is not open to the general public (invitation only), you can still catch all the action as the event will be streamed live on impactmontreal.com around 6:30pm (ET).
