Montreal: Spectator Sports
A city of a hundred nations
Montreal spoils visitors when it comes to spectator sports. In winter you can watch Canada’s favourite sport, ice hockey, by catching the Montreal Canadiens (Habs as they are fondly known by fans) in action at the Bell Centre. The Montreal Canadiens are one of the original six hockey teams that began the National Hockey League in 1917. Since, Montreal has won the coveted Stanley Cup 24 times and is one of the most loved hockey teams of all time. If hockey isn’t too you’re liking (don’t let anyone in Montreal, or Canada for that matter hear you) you can catch a Canadian football game and watch the Montreal Alouettes compete for the Grey Cup from July to November. Montreal also hosts its version of the Indy 500, the Grand Prix car race that sweeps through the city for 3 days every summer. The city enjoys world class curling.
