Well here’s something you don’t see every day.

This morning, Montreal Impact announced a sellout of 61,004 for the first leg of the MLS Eastern Conference Final against Toronto FC, tying a club record for the most attendance at a game.

With this in mind, the Impact advised fans to get to the Big O early as kickoff was set for 8 pm.

And then all hell broke loose.

The technical problem? Incorrectly measured and painted lines.

Montreal’s Olympic Stadium is not the Impact’s usual home field, as the team typically plays at neighbouring Saputo Stadium. Montreal and Toronto will play a home-and-home, with the winner on aggregate advancing to the MLS Cup Final.
