BMO Bank of Montreal today announced that the FC Brossard U10 Boys have been named BMO Team of the Week. The title comes with a $500 team prize, a $500 donation to a charity of the team's choice, BMO Team of the Week tracksuits for the team and coaching staff and a community celebration in the team's honour at a local BMO branch.
FC Brossard, which has been recognized for its players' work on and off the field, is the 14th team to be named BMO Team of the Week in 2013. A total of 15 weekly winners across Canada will be named over the course of the summer as part of BMO's national grassroots soccer program.
"The FC Brossard boys are united by spirit, solidarity, perseverance and passion for soccer," said Kevin Dean Chan-Yu-Tin, Head Coach of the FC Brossard U10 Boys. "They work incredibly hard to excel at a sport they love, and it's an honour to know that our dedication to this sport and to the community has been recognized."
BMO Team of the Week recognizes youth soccer teams (age 7-12) across Canada that demonstrate team pride, spirit, community commitment and passion for the game. Fifteen teams will be selected as BMO Team of the Week. Each of the weekly winners will then vie for the title of 2013 BMO Team of the Week Champion. The Champion will be determined by the Canadian public through daily online voting at BMOsoccer.com from August 5-19, for the team they feel is most deserving of the award.
"The work ethic, team spirit and community commitment that the FC Brossard boys exhibit at such a young age is a perfect illustration of what BMO Team of the Week is all about," said Pierre M. Bergeron, Vice President, Quebec South East District, Bank of Montreal. "They are a true example of the quality of youth soccer in Canada and the direction in which it is headed."
