Welcome To La Metropole Sports


Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

The Montreal sports scene is, much like the city itself, rich, diverse and never stops. The city is much more than just the Canadiens. From football to soccer to under appreciated amateur hockey from men and women and – who knows – maybe even baseball again. The sports never stop.

The site’s name comes from La Metropole – French for Metropolis – as Montreal is known. The city gets many events in addition to the teams that call it home. The Rogers Cup and Fed Cup, Formula One, World Junior Hockey Championships, Scott’s Tournament of Hearts and the FIFA Women’s World Cup are all annual events or set to come by 2015. Of course, there are many more.

La Metropole Sports will be your one stop shop for news, coverage and analysis of the teams and events that come through Montreal. If it’s sports and it happens in Montreal, we will talk about it. That’s my goal for this site. Think of it as an online sports section or magazine of a Montreal newspaper.

I look forward to taking you through this journey and whether you’re from Montreal or outside of it, my goal is to open your eyes to exactly what is going on in this city. And if you have any questions or comments or want to join the team, don’t hesitate to contact me at lametropolesports@gmail.com or on Twitter at @jaredbook or the site at @MetropoleSport. I look forward to hearing from you.
