All-Time Record: 1.4 Million people tuned in for Montreal Impact vs Toronto FC Eastern Conference Finals 2nd leg

A Massive Step Forward for Canadian Soccer

MLS: Eastern Conference Championship-Montreal Impact at Toronto FC John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, the intense and historic match between the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC drew a combined 1.4 Million viewers on both RDS and TSN. By comparison, the first leg drew 595,000 on TSN and 429,000 on RDS, and this time around 862,000 people tuned into TSN and 519,000 on RDS; a 35% increase.

This two leg series between the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC will go down as one of the most memorable and important soccer matches in Canadian soccer history. Canadians have a lot to be happy about, and if these viewership numbers are any indication, soccer in Canada is moving in the right direction.
