REDA AGOURRAM INVITED TO IMPACT TRAINING CAMP

PRESS RELEASE: January 20, 2010

MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact announced Wednesday that Trois-Rivières Attak striker Reda Agourram has been invited to the Montreal team’s training camp, which will kick off Monday at the Bell Sports Complex, in Brossard.

Agourram, a 19-year-old Montrealer of Moroccan origin, played the 2009 season with the Impact’s reserve team. In 19 matches (14 starts) and 1,356 minutes of play, Agourram scored 13 goals, which earned him the Best Scorer and Rookie of the Year honours, both with the Attak and in the Canadian Soccer League. In his first season in that league, he helped the Attak win their first playoff championship. In 2009, he was called up by the Impact for the exhibition game against the Haitian national team, July 1, at Saputo Stadium.

“Reda did very well with the reserve team last year and we have followed him closely with Attak coach Philippe Eullaffroy,” declared Impact head coach Marc Dos Santos. “He is a player who is physically strong and fast. His excellent vision of the game enables him to make the right decisions in the 18-yard box. He will now need to show that he deserves his spot in the team this upcoming season.”

“I’m thrilled about having been invited to camp, but the toughest part is yet to come,” declared Agourram, who is back from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he took part in the U-23 Canadian Olympic team training camp, from January 11 to the 19. “I hope to leave a positive impression and be selected by the club. I had a good season with the Attak last year and I believe I’m ready to make the leap into the professional ranks. My learning curve will only continue to grow with the Impact.”

THE IMPACT PLAYED ITS SECOND INTER-CLUB MATCH

BROSSARD – The Montreal Impact played Saturday its second inter-club match of training camp in front of more than 600 spectators at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard.

The Blue team, composed mainly of Impact players, registered a 3-0 win against the White team, which was mostly made up of players from the reserve team, the Trois-Rivières Attak.

Midfielder Tony Donatelli opened the score at the 23rd minute by scoring on a penalty. Forward Reda Agourram doubled the Blue team’s lead at the 33rd minute by completing a play started by forward Eduardo Sebrango and midfielder Filipe Soares. Forward Roberto Brown scored the third goal of the match at the 90th minute, completing with a header a cross from midfielder Philippe Billy.

Forwards Roberto Brown and Eduardo Sebrango, midfielders Leonardo Di Lorenzo and Tyler Hemming, as well as defender Hicham Aaboubou, who had not played the first inter-club game last Saturday, took part in the match. Goalkeepers Matt Jordan, Andrei Badescu and Dominic Provost shared the playing time in nets. Goalkeeper Srdjan Djekanovic did not play due to back spasms.

“The game today was another good test for all players,” declared Impact head coach Marc Dos Santos. “I liked what I saw, especially during the first half, because we were closer to our game principles. I see progress since the start of camp and it’s satisfying. Nonetheless, we will get a clearer picture of the team’s evolution during our stay in Portugal.”

The Impact should play its first training camp exhibition game this coming Friday against a university team.

Peter Byers, who underwent surgery to his right knee on Friday, will be absent for a four-week period approximately.

Impact beat Portuguese Club 5-1

FREAMUNDE, Portugal - The Montreal Impact won 5-1 (halftime 2-1) against Sport Clube Freamunde, a second division Portuguese club playing in the League of Honour, Wednesday in Freamunde, in the first of three exhibition matches in Portugal, played under heavy rain conditions and wind squalls of more than 70 km/h. "Even if the score doesn't truly reflect the game, the victory is fully deserved because the Impact was the best team on the field. The result is really fair," declared Impact head coach Marc Dos Santos. "Maybe Freamunde didn't approach the game in the best manner, while we came here with the same attitude than during a league match. I think we surprised them."

After telling a wonderful little story about meeting a Canadian border control agent in Toronto, he said that Montreal is definitely in for 2012 and that an announcement is expected very soon.

IMPACT 1 BARRACUDA FC 0


PRESS RELEASE: April 17, 2010

ANTIGUA – A goal from forward Reda Agourram in the first half allowed the Montreal Impact to shut out Barracuda FC 1-0, Saturday, at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, in Antigua, in the first of a home-and-away friendly series between both clubs.

Agourram scored the game-winning goal in the 26th minute after accepting a pass from midfielder Philippe Billy. Agourram beat the Barracuda goalkeeper with a low shot to the far post inside the 18-yard box.

“We played an excellent match on the road. I am especially proud of the players’ attitude today, who worked for the victory,” declared Impact head coach Marc Dos Santos. “The grass was wet and slippery due to the rainfall prior to the matchup, but we played an impeccable game and were very disciplined.”

Word is that the 2010 pink MTL kit is a tribute to Palermo, where the Saputo family originates from and will only be used in the Canadian Championship games by the team





the goal keeper has decided to wear the pink shirt in regular season games

IT'S OFFICIAL

http://www.montrealmls2012.com/



After months of negotiations, MLS Commissioner Don Garber announced in Montreal on Friday that Canada’s second-largest city will become home to the league’s 19th franchise, to begin play in the 2012 season.

Joey Saputo, owner of the USSF D2 Montreal Impact, will also assume ownership of the expansion team, which will play at a newly renovated Saputo Stadium. The natural-grass venue will undergo approximately US$22 million in expansion to accommodate crowds of 20,000, some 7,000 more than its current capacity.

Additionally, the new team will play a select number of games at nearby Olympic Stadium, the 66,000-seat venue that once was home to the Montreal Expos.

Whitecaps FC and Impact End the Night Where They Started


In a battle of the top two clubs in the NASL Conference, Vancouver Whitecaps FC recorded a second straight goalless draw in the USSF D-2 Pro League following a 0-0 home result with Canadian arch-rivals Montreal Impact on Saturday evening.

In what was their second meeting of the season at Swangard Stadium, these two Major League Soccer-bound clubs showed plenty of endeavour to find a match winner, but neither side could find a way past the two goalkeepers in Montreal's Matt Jordan and Vancouver's Jay Nolly.

Impact Prevail in Portland


A goal from Tony Donatelli at the 31st minute allowed the Montreal Impact to register a first win in Portland since August 31, 2006, with a 1-0 victory over the Timbers, on Wednesday evening at PGE Park. The Impact returns from a two-match sequence on the west coast with four points out of a maximum of six. The Impact remains undefeated in its last five matches in the USSF Second Division and takes the lead in the NASL division, two points ahead of Vancouver.

“We suffered tonight, but the guys were ready to sacrifice themselves,” declared Impact head coach Marc Dos Santos. “They put a lot of pressure on us, especially at the end of the game but we were able to ward off the danger. Our ability to defend as a unit is getting better each game.”

Impact Tie Italian Giants


The Montreal Impact and Italian Serie A club Fiorentina played to a 1-1 draw, Sunday, in an international friendly at Saputo Stadium. Impact rookie forward Reda Agourram opened the scoring at the 8th minute of play. Fiorentina defender Felipe slipped, leaving Agourram one-on-one with defender Cesare Natali. He got past Cesara and unloaded a low shot that beat goalkeeper Sébastien Frey to his left.

Fiorentina scored the tying goal in the 63rd minute. Forward Stevan Jovetic back-heeled the ball behind the Montreal defense, right to forward Harris Seferovic, who beat goalkeeper Srdjan Djekanovic with a powerful shot to the top of the net.
