CS Roussillon Joins CF Montréal's Scouting and Development Centre

November 23, 2023 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Club de Foot Montreal News Release

MONTREAL - CF Montréal announced on Thursday the addition of its newest partner club, CS Roussillon, as part of its Scouting and Development Centre (CIP).

Created in 2004, CS Roussillon brings together players from Saint-Constant, Sainte-Catherine, Delson, Saint-Philippe and Saint-Rémi.

"It is with great excitement that we welcome CS Roussillon as our new partner club," said Academy Director Marinos Papageorgopoulos. "CS Roussillon is a well-established club, and we're excited to help them grow and start working with them in its community."

"We are all united and committed to continuing to develop soccer in the region and maintain the solid partnerships that are important factors in our success. I am very pleased and proud that we have been able to sign such an agreement with CF Montréal and become part of the CIP family. CF Montréal is the only professional club from Quebec, so it is a benchmark and an inspiration for us all. The partnership with CFMTL is a major competitive asset in the further development of our club, and especially that of our young members, who will benefit from CF Montréal sporting insight on our fields. Technical support will also be provided to our coaches and educators, who will benefit from conferences and supervised workshops," said CS Roussillon president, Abdoul Amar.

CF Montréal now has nine CIP partner clubs: FC Laval, AS Brossard, CS St-Lazare Hudson, FC Loro, Soccer Pointe-Claire, CS Montréal Centre, CS Trident, CS Lanaudière-Nord and CS Roussillon.

As CF Montréal has sought to establish a more sustained collaboration plan with its partners, the Scouting and Development program was revised in 2021. This new consultative partnership formula allows participating clubs like CS Roussillon to take full advantage of the Club's resources, both at the technical and administrative levels, including weekly on-site visits. Partner clubs also have exclusive access to CF Montréal activities and initiatives such as tournaments, camps, and technical competitions.

Launched on July 2, 2019, the Scouting and Development Centre is a high-performance development and identification program developed by the Club's Academy and its educators. The initiative includes visits with partner clubs and is part of a broader desire to share the Academy's knowledge, training, and methodologies in order to strengthen ties with the Quebec soccer community.
