The Impact will add a second professional team in Quebec with the creation of a new team in USL Pro called FC Montreal for the 2015 season. The new team will be composed predominantly of young Quebec players from our U18 and U23 teams.
“It is a major change in our structure and the development of soccer in Quebec,” added Joey Saputo. “This new team will serve as the final step and transition for our young players before joining MLS. We believe that it is the best way to prepare them for the top league in North American soccer.”
The agreement with USL Pro will be finalized in the coming weeks.
