48-hour flash sale happening this weekend
We’re already at the point in time when there’s less than a month separating us from the first game of the Bleu-blanc-noir’s season, which will take place in San Jose, at Avaya Stadium against the Earthquakes on Saturday, March 2 at 10pm EST (TVA Sports). It’s time to start getting excited, but more importantly, to start looking at the MLS regular season schedule to see which games to attend, whether at home or away – dear Members, we already know you’ll be at EVERY game at Stade Saputo.
The first game in Montreal will be against the Columbus Crew SC on Saturday, April 13, at 1pm. If you’re anything like us, you’re impatient to make your way back to the coziness of Stade Saputo and see the Impact kick the ball around. But if you aren’t like us, here are five reasons to book your tickets for the spring matchup.
- Year two of the Rémi Garde era in Montreal kicks off
The French head coach has a season’s experience under his belt and has already had the opportunity to slightly remodel his group. The veterans who were there last year, on their end, are already familiar with what the Bleu-blanc-noir boss expects, prefers, and teaches.
She’s a real beauty, the new Montreal Impact jersey: very focused on black, a first for a primary jersey in the Bleu-blanc-noir’s MLS era, it combines history and the future with a certain level of panache. Buy it here.
- Winter will be over
We know, it’s hard not to think about our upcoming summer months at this time of year. Who can’t wait to wear shorts when the sun is shining bright and mercury levels indicate 10 degrees*?
Weather conditions are not guaranteed by Impact Media. But if it ain’t snowing, we’re smiling.
- The new guys
There’s certainly continuity in the group kicking off 2019: Bush, Sagna, Raitala, Camacho, Cabrera, Lovitz, Piette, Azira, Taïder, Krolicki, Mathieu Choinière, Shome, Piatti and Jackson-Hamel are faces we saw last year who are back with the team in 2019. Although Diallo isn’t a new player, it almost feels like he is a new signing, he who missed the entire 2018 season and who should be an important part of the defensive unit; Novillo and Urruti, on their end, will animate the attack. Reinforcements on both ends of the field are exactly what the Impact needed.
- Three points
Obviously. All points count, as we saw in the final 2018 MLS regular standings. Come support us and help us get these three points!
