Montreal - Thursday, June 7, 2018

Members of the Impact visited two schools this year to remind young students of the importance of studying, persevering and building self-confidence in order to succeed.

The traditional “EMSB Night” will take place on Wednesday, June 13 (7:30 pm) when the Impact host Orlando City FC at Saputo Stadium. More than 2,250 tickets have been sold to EMSB students and staff for the game. 

Before the game, the EMSB’s presence will be recognized and two students will be presented with the Tony Licursi Bursary, valued at $500 each.
