CF Montrealhas fielded legends from around the world including the Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba, Argentina’s Ignacio Piatti, Italy’s Marco Di Vaio, and the Canadian National Team Captain Patrice Bernier.There were no events found for CF Montreal.
Stade Saputo (Saputo Stadium) opened in 2008 as a soccer-specific stadium just north of Montreal’s Olympic Stadium. The ground has seen CF move from division two soccer to MLS and seats over 20,000. During construction for the stadium to be renovated for MLS, the club played matches in Olympic Stadium and continues to use that second ground for large-capacity league games or international friendlies. Stade Saputo is decked out in blue seats throughout, mirroring the club’s primary club, and features rooftops providing partial coverage from the elements for about one-third of the seats.
