Trois-Rivières Attak FC is a Canadian soccer team, taking a sabbatical year from the Canadian Soccer League. They formally served as a reserve/academy team for the USL First Division side Montreal Impact until 2010, when Montreal Impact founded their own academy. Because of the ended cooperation with Impact, they announced that they would take one-year absence from the Canadian Soccer League in 2010 and return for the 2011 season.[2][3] The team did not return for 2011 and its future is in doubt.[4]

History[edit]

Foundation[edit]

On November 15, 2006, the Montreal Impact announced the creation of a feeder team in Trois-Rivières, and that the name would be chosen from the result of a contest.

The name Trois-Rivières Attak FC and the logo were presented to the public on January 17, 2007, together with the first signings Nicolas Lesage and Jean-Louis Bessé.

Inaugural season[edit]

The club were a surprise in their inaugural season by being competitive in the CSL right from the beginning. In their first season, they won the Open Canada Cup with a 3-0 victory in the final against opponents Columbus Clan FC. In the league, they finished second in the National Division and reached the playoff semi-final, where they eventually lost against Serbian White Eagles.

Striker Nicolas Lesage was the 2007 CSL top goalscorer with 16 goals.

Home stadium[edit]

The Attak play their home games at the Stade de l'UQTR on the campus of the Université du Québec and sometimes indoor at Centre Sportif Alphonse-Desjardins in Trois-Rivières.
