CF Montreal are one of two Canadian soccer teams who feature in the Eastern Conference. They have enjoyed comparatively great success since joining the league in 2012. In 2015, CF Montreal became the second MLS team in 20 years, and the first Canadian team, to ever to compete in the CONCACAF Champions League Final. Playing their home games at the Saputo Stadium in Montreal, Quebec, they are also the 2013 and 2014 back-to-back Canadian Championship winners.
The club was formed due to a challenge made by Toronto, Montreal’s biggest rivals, who said in 2008 they’d welcome Montreal as an MLS rival. CF Montreal lost their first-ever MLS game to a Canadian side when Vancouver Whitecaps beat them 2-0. But the match was well attended with over 58,000 fans inside the Saputo Stadium.
After winning the Canadian Championship, they knocked out a Mexican side in the 2015 CONCACAF Champions League knockout stage, beating Pachuca on away goals. CF Montreal also secured the services of Didier Drogba in 2015. The former Marseille and Chelsea striker was a huge addition to the MLS, officially announcing CF Montreal as bonafide contender.
In 2015, they finished third in the Eastern Conference, with Drogba the former UEFA Champions League winner scoring 11 goals in his first 11 appearances for the club.
Once in the MLS playoffs, CF Montreal recorded an impressive win over their bitter rivals Toronto F.C., triumphing 3-0 to face Columbus Crew in the semifinals. CF Montreal won the first match 2-1, but lost the reverse fixture 3-1. Columbus Crew required a late aggregate equalizer to force extra time, before a Kei Kamara winner sealed their place in the next round of the plao and eliminate CF Montreal in agonising fashion.
CF Montreal returned to the semifinals in 2016, where they lost to bitter rivals Toronto FC in one of the most exciting semifinals ever. More recently, the team has put in some of the best performances in the East. Keep an eye on CF Montreal as we head into the new season.
