Toronto FC’s meeting with the Montreal Impact in the Eastern Conference final won’t mean another trip to Stade Saputo.
The Impact have decided to host the first leg of the tie at the 61,000-capacity Olympic Stadium - or the ‘Big O’ - to take advantage of probable increased ticket sales.
For comparison, Stade Saputo holds just under 21,000 fans.

A quick glance at Montreal’s ticket sales page indicates they will only put seats in the bottom tier of the stadium on sale to begin with.
The first leg will take place on Tuesday, November 22 at 8pm ET before Toronto host Montreal at BMO Field on Wednesday, November 30 at 7pm.
