The Montreal Impact have announced that the club has sold over 50,000 tickets for the first leg of their Eastern Conference final against Toronto FC.

The Impact normally play their games at Stade Saputo, which has a capacity of 20,801.

But when Montreal prevailed in its Eastern Conference semifinal against the New York Red Bulls, and the club found it matched up against Canadian rival Toronto, it opted to move the first leg to Montreal's Olympic Stadium.

As of Friday, only 10,000 tickets remain to be sold for the match, set to take place on Nov. 22 (8 p.m. ET, ESPN/WatchESPN). The second leg is scheduled to take place at Toronto's BMO Field on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Montreal is now using the stadium's tower as a barometer to show fans how many tickets have been sold.

The Impact will look to clinch a berth to the MLS Cup, scheduled for Dec. 10 at the home of Seattle Sounders FC or Colorado Rapids, whichever club wins the Western Conference finals.
