Alouettes Alumni Association
The Alouettes Alumni Association’s objectives are to support members in their career transition, to represent the team and to be involved in the community.
Composed of over 400 former players of the Montreal Alouettes, the ever-growing Association is taking bold initiatives and together, the members continue the tradition by being involved socially.
The Association is chaired by Étienne Boulay who is supported by a board of directors.
The Alouettes Alumni Association maintains the tradition by being involved in the community and helping young athletes.
In recent years, the Alouettes Alumni Association has awarded bursaries for a total of nearly $ 50 000 for young athletes who distinguish themselves in school.
Fans, partners and members of the Alouettes Alumni Association have the privilege to meet several times a year during fundraising activities. The purpose of these activities is to raise funds to provide scholarships to athletes who stand out in school or to allow the Association to highlight the involvement or the exploits of our members and create a fund ‘relief for our former players.
Game ball delivery and Opening of the Cage
Many members of the Association attend Alouettes home games and have the opportunity to participate in pre-game official ceremonies, including the unlocking of the lock on the Cage and the game ball delivery.
