The Montreal Impact got the word last night: the weather will not be an impediment to their hosting Mexico’s Club Santos Laguna at Olympic Stadium at 8 p.m. tonight.
Which is good, because there are already more than 50,000 tickets sold for the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal game. (CONCACAF Champions League not to be confused with CONCACAF 2010 World Cup qualifying, where Team Canada stunk up the joint by not winning any of its six games in the third round last fall)
There are still plenty of tickets available (the Big O’s capacity is about 65,000, depending on how many seats are added to the floor) at rates ranging from $10 to $50, from Admission or at the Olympic Stadium ticket office. Fans are asked to wear blue to support their team.
If you’re a wuss and can’t make it out, the game will be carried live at 8pm on:
- bold TV (that’s CBC’s other, digital cable channel that nobody gets)
- CKAC 730AM
- The Team 990 AM
The main CBC networks will carry it delayed: Radio-Canada at 11:30pm and CBC at midnight.
