Métro Soccer League / Subway Soccer League

Recommended Posts

In 1966, Montréal mayor Jean Drapeau spearheads an initiative to bring underground transportation to the city of Montréal. The following year, the 1967 World's Fair comes to the island. To celebrate this joyous moment, the City of Montréal will join together and create a 26 team soccer league featuring the original metro stations. Each with a team playing in the individual neighbourhood, featuring sponsorship by prominent businesses and home/away shirts inspired by the metro specific art and design.

 

Take a trip back to 1967 with me, while we explore the formulation of the Montréal Subway Soccer League.

From the above map, you can see that the stations have been divided into Northern and Southerns divisions, just North of the major hub Berri-de-Montigny. Twenty six teams, split up into the two divisions. Over the next few weeks, and months, I'll be creating team logos, home/away shirts, and introducing the individual neighbourhoods, featuring a little bit of backstory on each.

All concept threads must have the concept, or the initial concept of a series, present in the first post.  Any concept thread that does not contain a viewable concept will be deleted.

  • Do not post a "teaser image" in the first post of a concept thread.

 

Once you have something to post (other than a map), feel free to start this up again.
