re: Montreal Impact FC (Impact de Montréal FC)



After months of negotiations, MLS Commissioner Don Garber announced in Montreal on Friday that Canada’s second-largest city will become home to the league’s 19th franchise, to begin play in the 2012 season.

Joey Saputo, owner of the USSF D2 Montreal Impact, will also assume ownership of the expansion team, which will play at a newly renovated Saputo Stadium. The natural-grass venue will undergo approximately US$22 million in expansion to accommodate crowds of 20,000, some 7,000 more than its current capacity.

Additionally, the new team will play a select number of games at nearby Olympic Stadium, the 66,000-seat venue that once was home to the Montreal Expos.

The Impact consolidates its development pyramid


MONTREAL – With just 16 months from a debut in Major League Soccer (MLS), the Montreal Impact announced on Wednesday a unique player development structure in Canada with the creation of three new youth teams (U14, U15, and U16) as part of its Academy, as well as the founding of a sport-études program in partnership with Édouard-Montpetit high school, which is part of the Commission scolaire de Montréal. These three teams, made up of over 70 new players, will complement the U21 reserve team which is already in place.

“This is a very special day in the history of the Montreal Impact,” said Impact and Saputo Stadium president Joey Saputo. “With the addition of these three teams and the founding of the sport-études program, we are putting a unique structure in place that will guarantee the development of local players for our club. It is a substantial and necessary investment to better develop our future. We will put all the necessary resources at the players’ disposal, for both human and professional growth. We are proud to be partners with Édouard-Montpetit, an institution that is at the forefront of academics and sport.”

NICK DE SANTIS NAMED SPORTING DIRECTOR


MONTREAL – With Major League Soccer on the horizon for the Montreal Impact in 2012, the club announced Monday the appointment of Nick De Santis as the club’s sporting director, while Matt Jordan becomes his main assistant as the team’s director of soccer operations.

Technical director since June 2008, Nick De Santis will now have even more responsibilities with the Impact. Along with supervising the first team, he will also oversee all of the technical aspects of the four Academy teams (U21, U16, U15, U14) as well as the soccer schools.

“We’re already starting to assemble the pieces that we believe will lead to success from the moment we join MLS,” declared Impact president Joey Saputo. “We expect our team to be competitive from the very first season. Nick proved in the past that he’s capable of leading this club to victory and I have the utmost confidence in his ability to lead the entire technical staff.”

Matt Jordan moves into Impact's front office

Former MLS goalkeeping star officially announces his retirement

NEW YORK – A former MLS goalkeeping star officially hung up his boots on Monday, but he will still be very much in position to make league history.

Former Dallas and Columbus netminder Matt Jordan (pictured above, middle) surprisingly announced his retirement at Montreal Impact headquarters following a 13-year career. He will now move into the Impact’s front office as the club prepares for its first MLS expansion season in 2012.

The 35-year-old Jordan will become the new director of soccer operations in Montreal, where he arguably left his most lasting legacy as a player.

"Of all the teams that I have played for in my career, my time here in Montreal has been the most rewarding," Jordan said in a club statement. "I'm extremely proud of what we have been able to accomplish in the last four years.”

As director of soccer operations, Jordan will serve as chief assistant of new sporting director Nick De Santis. He will be responsible for working with the MLS league office on all player personnel matters.

Jordan’s MLS career was off to a promising start when Dallas made him the 10th overall draft pick in 1998.

After biding his time as a rookie, he assumed the starting goalkeeper job in Dallas in 1999, earning an MLS All-Star selection to the tune of a 1.08 goals-against average. Jordan maintained his stranglehold on the position through the 2002 season, after which he tried his luck overseas

THE IMPACT WILL FACE NEW YORK RED BULLS AT SAPUTO STADIUM

MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact will face Major League Soccer (MLS) club New York Red Bulls at Saputo Stadium, in a friendly on Wednesday, May 11, at 7:30pm.

With Montreal set to join Major League Soccer in 2012, this will provide soccer fans around the province with a great opportunity to get an early taste of MLS action.

Some well-known faces will take part in this match, including a couple of former FC Barcelona members, French forward Thierry Henry and Mexican defender Rafa Marquez, as well as Canadian goalkeeper Greg Sutton, who played for the Impact from 2001 to 2006.

“We are very excited to welcome the New York Red Bulls and bring an MLS team to Montreal,” declared Impact president Joey Saputo. “We will have the chance to face one of the original members of MLS, a club that has proved over the years to be a top class organization. This match promises to be a great experience for our fans. As we prepare our club for MLS in 2012, we would like to thank the Red Bulls organization for this opportunity.”

Sporting KC Beats Impact


CASA GRANDE, Arizona – In its second pre-season game in Arizona against Major League Soccer (MLS) clubs, the Montreal Impact was shut out 2-0 by Sporting Kansas City, Saturday afternoon, at Casa Grande’s soccer complex, in Arizona.
Kansas City opened the scoring in the 17th minute. In an effort to intercept a cross in the air from midfielder Stephane Auvray, team captain Nevio Pizzolitto deflected the ball over Impact goalkeeper Bill Gaudette.

KC doubled its lead off of a penalty shot in the 73rd minute. Forward CJ Sapong, who was fouled a few seconds prior in the 18-yard box, beat the second half goalkeeper Evan Bush, who is on a tryout with the Impact.

“We played a really good opponent, that moved the ball really well, but they won the game without really getting good scoring chances. Both goals came out of nowhere,” said Impact head coach Marc Dos Santos. “Defensively, we were solid, but we have to take better decisions in the third of the field.”

Montreal Supporters Club


UM02 (Ultras Montréal)

The group was created in 2002, after the re-opening of the Montréal Impact, when a group of fans decided to bring organized and vocal support to Impact games. Their slogan is "Toujours Fidèles" which is French for Always Faithful.
