You are invited to the Tim Hortons All-Star Game!

MONTREAL – The Montreal Alouettes present the fourth edition of the Tim Hortons All-Star Game this weekend (Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8), showcasing the best Secondary III and IV football players in the province of Quebec at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium.

In partnership with Football Quebec’s Program of Excellence, more than 100 players will showcase their skills on both days in front of a number of CEGEP coaches from across the province. Also, in collaboration with Tim Hortons, four Atom football games will take place on Sunday, giving the young players a chance to live the Alouettes experience thanks to the presence of players, cheerleaders and the team’s mascot, Touché!.
