James Pantemis (born February 21, 1997) is a Canadian soccer player who plays as a goalkeeper for the Montreal Impact in Major League Soccer.



FC Montreal[edit]

Pantemis started playing football for AS Pierrefonds at the age of four and later played for Lakeshore SC before joining the Montreal Impact's academy system in 2014.[1][2]

In 2016 Pantemis joined FC Montreal, the reserve team of the Montreal Impact in the United Soccer League. He made his professional debut on May 2, 2016 in a 1–0 defeat to Orlando City II, and also featured in a 2–1 defeat to Bethlehem Steel on May 15, 2016.[3] He played two games for FC Montreal after tearing his LCL in June 2016, and was still injured when the club ceased operations after the 2016 season, leaving him unattached for until he signed with the Impact.[4]

Montreal Impact[edit]

After recovering from his LCL injury, Pantemis would train with Serie A club Bologna in September 2017,[5][6] and would sign a first team contract with Montreal Impact in November 2017.[7]



Pantemis was born in Canada and is of Greek descent. Pantemis is currently a part of Canada's U-20 program and made his start in a 2–1 victory over England.[1] In May 2018, Pantemis was named to Canada's under-21 squad for the 2018 Toulon Tournament.[8]


In June 2017, he was called up to the Canadian senior national team for a friendly against Curaçao, but did not appear. He was subsequently called up for a friendly against Jamaica in September of that year.[1]
