Call it a grand slam city. A gold medal metropolis. A heavyweight destination. Choose the sports jargon of your choice. Montréal is all of those things. The city possesses considerable assets when it comes to accommodating all types of sporting events: modern facilities, qualified coaches and top-level athletes, not to mention the excellent hosting quality and incomparable joie de vivre of its inhabitants.

We understand the importance of teamwork, and that’s why we use a collaborative approach to hosting major events in our city. Tourisme Montréal is your single point of contact to connect you to a vast network of stakeholders in the fields of sports, event management and hospitality — such as sports federations, athletes, officials, event promoters, and government authorities.

By working together with a team approach, we make a coordinated effort to identify, bid on and then collaborate to host a wide variety of sports events. From touch down to take off — and every moment between — Montréal is in the game with you.

Let the figures speak for themselves

Over 600 direct flights land daily just 20 minutes from downtown. There are over 24,600 rooms, 16,000 located downtown, including 4,000 connected to the Palais des congrès de Montréal (Convention Centre) via an underground pedestrian network. Choose from a wide selection of accommodations, from trendy boutique hotels in Old Montréal to major hotel chains downtown, or quaint B&B lodgings in the Plateau neighbourhood. University residences also offer an interesting alternative.

Ready and waiting for you !
