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 LGBTTIQA2S community. Sport has been an integral part of the emancipation of our communities, especially in Montréal, where there have been LGBTTIQA2S sports organizations since 1980. In the decades since the 1976 Olympic Games, 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 LGBTTIQA2S 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 and  the adjacent André-Grasset College on August 12 and 13, 2017. These state-of-the-art multisport centres will group all competitions in one single venue and allow athletes to enjoy high-quality facilities.

Athletes can participate in any of the following sports:

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

Following the two days of competition and striving for personal best, the spirit of camaraderie will continue with a celebration in the festive atmosphere of the first T-Dance on Sunday, August 13, 2017. Tournament participants will have access to a private space and a free BBQ (including hot-dogs, hamburgers, salads and desserts, but excluding beverages).

Companions/guests may also purchase tickets for the BBQ at a cost of $25/person.
