With the state of Stade Olympic in flux with a safe roof their will be two clubs that may miss that advantage.
First of course the Als regular season games are much better at McGill but the playoff games at Olympic and 50K plus also was a big advantage missed.
Come next around next March the Impact have qualified for the Concacaf Champions league. The last time they hosted a Champions league game again 50K plus were in attendance and the climate inside was a bit more pleasing.
The Als also for now will be unable to host a Grey Cup game in which from last time they hosted to this time the profits and assured sellouts have become some major profitable. The CFL as well attempted to break the record for Grey Cup attendance last time there and came up a bit short. Again from then to now the Grey Cup sells itself and likely would be a major cue for Montreal to be the city that breaks the record.
Public funds will not be used obviously. A new partnership with Impact and Quebecor's new Sports Network TVA as their regional broadcast partner. Along with Quebecor now also involved in the business of managing sports venues could be a case where there could be some movement.
Saputo knows the potential of hosting not only some big impact matches at a larger venue but also the International tour that comes through North America.
