In the lead up to their first ever conference championship, the Montreal Impact have moved a recognizable symbol to a Olympic Stadium.

The North Star Bell, a large bell that is rung after every Impact goal, has been moved from Saputo Stadium to the Olympic Stadium where the team will face Toronto FC on Tuesday.

“It has quickly become, in one year, a symbol for the team,” Anthony Lizzi, co-founder Montreal Impact supporters group, said.

The bell has a designated ringer each game and past ringers have included Georges St-Pierre and Alexandre Bilodeau.

This time world champion boxer Jean Pascal will do the honours.

“Our goal is to let many people know what a beautiful sport this is,” Lizzi said. “The more we have famous bell ringers the more that helps.”
