In a recent interview with Pierre Durocher of the Journal de Montreal, Joey Saputo " wants to understand" why it is seemingly difficult for the Montreal Impact to attract bigger crowds. 24 hours before the Impact's massive 3-0 win over the New York Red Bulls, the owner/president of the Bleu-Blanc-Noir sounded exasperated that the Olympic Stadium lower bowl would not be filled.

With an objective set at 34,000, Montreal beat Jesse Marsch's club in front of 27,000 fans that were pretty loud. Frederic Loporcaro of the KAN Football Club looks at the situation and the debate around the #IMFC hashtag that stemmed from the president's take on the attendance issues. Sprinkle in some numbers and overall view of the MLS reality and you have yourself an interesting piece about the infinite debate around the Impact attendance and season ticket sales.
