Celebrity Match

In 2012, an innovative and original way to raise funds was launched: a friendly touch football game among Sherbrooke personalities who face off during the half time of an official game in which the Vert & Or  take on another university football league team. 

The Match des Célébrités (Celebrities Game) was an instant success among the local business class and personalities who were thrilled to grasp this opportunity for a physical challenge beyond their normal comfort zone. Every year since then, 30 Sherbrooke personalities have formed two opposing teams.

Coach Alain Lapointe's generous and dedicated collaboration as well as the support from our partners have turned this vent into a crowning achievement. Our partners: Ville de SherbrookeÉconosport and the local media.
