Club Soccer Mont-Royal Outremont is a Canadian semi-professional soccer club based in the Montreal boroughs of Mount Royal and Outremont. Since 2013, the club has competed in Ligue1 Québec.[3] Their women's team has competed in the women's division of the PLSQ since 2019.


In 2013, the club joined the Première ligue de soccer du Québec, a Division III league, fielding a team in the men's division.[4] During their inaugural season, they won both the League title and the League Cup.[5][6]

They once again finished as league champions in 2015 and 2016.[7] By winning the league title, they participated in the Inter-Provincial Cup, which was created in 2014, against the champion of League1 Ontario to determine the Canadian Division III champion.[8] In 2015, they were defeated by the Oakville Blue Devils,[9] but in 2016, they won the title by defeating Vaughan Azzurri.[10]

They added a team in the women's division of the PLSQ for the 2019 season with Lakers du Lac Saint-Louis, which was run by the Association Régionale de Soccer du Lac St-Louis of which they are a member, transferring their team to CSMRO.[11][12]

In 2019, the club partnered with Major League Soccer club CF Montréal, joining their Centre d'identification et perfectionnement (scouting and development centre).[13]

In 2021, they won their fourth PLSQ title, matching the record of AS Blainville, qualifying them for the 2022 Canadian Championship.[14]
