As of this Saturday, the Montreal Impact will set up a designated-driver service for Impact fans that had too much to drink to take them home. The Impact will be the first Canadian professional sports club to offer this kind of service to its fans.
What does it entail
A half-dozen of car and designated driverswill be present at Stade Saputo to bring fans and their cars safely at home. dedicated kiosk will be setup where more information can be found and most probably a registration process.
Seven alcohol testing terminals will be made available at the stadium to test their alcohol level
Between 35$ and 44$.
The club did state, via Patrick Vallée (Director of Communications) that this initiative was not to solve a recurring problem at the Stadium but to enchance the experience at Stade Saputo.
Fans of the Impact seem quite happy about this initiative.
Kudos to @impactmontreal for putting a service, like Nez rouge, to drive you home after the game if your too drunk to drive #imfc #MLS 1/2— Lizzy (@GirlsloveIMFC) August 20, 2015
First time an MLS team does that for his supporters. That's amazing, If your tipsy after the game look for them outside. #mls #imfc 2/2— Lizzy (@GirlsloveIMFC) August 20, 2015
