One of the teams with the highest increase in average attendance this year, the Montreal Impact looks to fill the Olympic Stadium for its first leg tilt against Toronto FC on November 22nd.
All our sources are claiming that the team will hit 30,000 tickets sold by tonight (Tuesday, Nov. 8th), and continue until sell out. The Olympic Stadium seats just over 60,000, and saw that many butts in the seats during the 2015 CCL run, culminating in the sell out Champions League final loss against Club America.
At this point, after calling into the box office to get some info, the bottom bowl is basically full and they are opening up the upper decks. The rumour is that the only tickets available in the bowl, which holds ~35,000 people, are solitary seats. If you take a quick look on StubHub or any other third party dealer, the prices have skyrocketed in the last few hours, many showing a sales price three times the face value. Tickets are still available, but get on it quickly by calling 514-328-3668.
The second leg will be played outdoors at BMO field on November 30th, with a rather minuscule stadium capacity of 30,991.
Expect a second announcement later today, that of 30,000 tickets sold, as Legendre is slated to speak on TVA Sport at 5pm.
EDIT: THE IMPACT HAVE SENT OUT AN EMAIL ANNOUNCEMENT THAT 30,000 TICKETS HAVE BEEN SOLD.
