Sports tournament

A Sporting Event during Canada Pride Montréal 2017

The integration of a sports tournament into the Canada Pride Montréal 2017 program of activities stems from the desire to represent the many facets of the LGBTTIQ2S community. Sport has been an integral part of the emancipation of our communities, especially in Montréal, where there have been LGBTTIQ2S sports organizations since 1980. In the decades since the Olympic Games in 1976, the city has hosted a multitude of national and international sporting events, including the 1st World Outgames Montréal 2006.

The goal of the tournament is to rekindle the flame of international sport and showcase LGBTTIQ2S sport within the framework of the first edition of Canada Pride Montréal 2017. In partnership with various members of Équipe Montréal, the sports tournament will be held at the Claude-Robillard Sports Complex on August 12 and 13, 2017. This state-of-the-art multisport centre will group together all sporting events in one place and allow athletes to enjoy high-quality facilities.

Athletes can participate in any of the following sports:

  • Badminton
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Water Polo

Following two days of competing and striving for personal best, the spirit of camaraderie continues with a celebration in the festive atmosphere of the first T-Dance on Sunday, August 13, 2017. Participants will have access to a private space and a free barbecue.

Registration begins in February, 2017. Follow all the latest news about the sports tournament. For any questions about the event, please contact us at: [email protected]
