⚽ Knock knock

The GIST: The knockouts are here and while Canada was unfortunately already eliminated, there’s still one Canadian team to root for: BMO.

The details: BMO has been supporting the beautiful game since 2005, and they’re particularly keen on championing young Canadian talent. One example? Their support of GearUp, a program which refurbishes soccer equipment to give to youth players across Quebec. Last year, over 10,000 items were donated to kids throughout the province. Magnifique.

The big picture: BMO’s also leveling the playing pitch for gals in the game. In partnership with Toronto FC, they recently launched the first Women’s Soccer Fellowship program in Canada. A true knockout.

Whether you’re checking the game score or your bank statement, let BMO lend a hand. Not only do they help grow your finances, they also help grow female representation in sports through programs like the first Women’s Soccer Fellowship in Canada, a partnership with Toronto FC. Bank on it.
