Big-O announcement coming soon?
According to this article (although posted on CKAC's site yesterday as well as being posted on the UM02 forums, which I'm sure many of you on here have seen already) an announcement is expected to be made soon. Seems as if Mr. Gillete is also going to be involved in the process.
The article also mentioned the Impact reaching out to the Mexican communities in Quebec, Ontario, and northern USA to get the word out on the game. The article goes on to mention that without any type of publicity the game will be expected to draw 20,000-25,000, if the proper publicity is done this game can draw well into the 30,000's.
Ticket prices were also mentioned said to be going for 10 and 20$ in the upper bowl and the highest priced tickets will be going for 50$.
From the Impact on Friday...
RICHARD LEGENDRE, MONTREAL IMPACT EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT ABOUT THE GAME AT OLYMPIC STADIUM
"Due to the Christmas Holidays, no official announcement will be made in the next few days. Discussions with the Régie des installations olympiques are positive and we remain confident that we will play our CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal game at Olympic Stadium. We are hoping to get a positive answer in early January."
Please take note that the organization will not make further comments on this issue.
