Saputo Stadium, Montreal
(4.5/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
Saputo Stadium is a soccer-specific stadium at Olympic Park in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The stadium opened on May 21, 2008, and is the current home of the Montreal Impact. The stadium is built on the former practice track and field site on the grounds of the 1976 Summer Olympics, while the stadium's west side has a view of Olympic Stadium's inclined tower. It has a capacity of 20,801, making it the second-largest soccer-specific stadium in Canada, after BMO Field in Toronto.ConstructionThe stadium cost to build, with $7.5 million paid by the Saputo family and the rest financed on a 25-year term. Saputo Stadium is now the Impact's administrative headquarters and also includes a training field, 34 corporate suites and full player welfare areas. The complex covers approximately 1600000sqft. Designed and fabricated by Dant Clayton Corporation and built by Broccolini Construction Inc.The stadium features a natural grass playing surface and was reportedly preferred over BMO Field for this reason by members of the Canada men's national soccer team. BMO Field has since installed a heated and fully irrigated natural grass field similar to what is found in the English Premier League.Anticipating a Montreal entry into Major League Soccer, plans were made to expand the stadium from its initial 13,034 capacity to 20,000 to cope with the anticipated boost in attendance. The Quebec government put $23 million for the renovation and expansion of the stadium (the total cost of the stadium was therefore about $40 million). The construction plans went into effect after MLS granted Montreal their nineteenth franchise, which began play in the 2012 season.

  • Being Argentine, and knowing what are the stages in terms of security, etc. A beautiful experience is go and take your 9-year-old son, as I did, and see a football match. You can eat a rich pizza, enjoy a stadium, austere, I expected much more. And for good measure to see them win 5-1 with 2 goals from Drogba and 2 Nacho Piatti.

  • The stadium is next to the old Olympic Stadium as well as the BioDome, Planetarium and a major movie theatre complex. For about $60 we were able to get tickets literally at half, right behind the Mont...  more »
  • You can see in full up to the Tower of the Olympic Stadium. But an income to any of the parties of the Montreal Impact, (football-soccer City team) can be a beautiful experience if attracts one football.
