Preseason already started for the Impact since being eliminated from the MLS Playoffs race. The Montréal Impact will be leaving the humid warm confines of Orlando to prepare its 2015 season in Arizona. The bleu-Blanc-noir will be one six MLS clubs competing for the 2015 Desert Diamond Cup.

Say goodbye to Mickey Mouse and embrace the chance to win the Cactus Cup?

The preseason tournament in Tucson, Arizona will be in its fourth year of existence. In the 2015 edition, the Colorado Rapids, New England Revolution, Seattle Sounders, Real Salt Lake and Sporting Kansas City will be the other clubs participating in the Desert Diamond Cup.
