In 1996, the Montreal Alouettes were re-founded again in Montreal which was the third rendition of the team. In 1997, Jim Speros sold the team to Robert Wettenhall, and former Alouettes star and CFL Commissioner Larry Smith became President of the club. The new Montreal Alouettes franchise played their first two seasons at Olympic Stadium, but attendance in the domed stadium was very poor and the long term prospects for the franchise were once again uncertain, until a twist of fate revitalized the floundering club.
When a scheduled November 1997 U2 concert conflicted with an unexpected home play-off game against the BC Lions (due to the CFL's curious 'cross-over' playoff format), the team decided to temporarily return to its old home at Molson Stadium. Interest in the team soared and the game was sold out, prompting the team to permanently relocate to the smaller venue beginning with the 1998 season. Since 1999, the Montreal Alouettes have sold out every game at the stadium, located on the McGill University campus. The team has not completely abandoned Olympic Stadium, however. The Montreal Alouettes soon resumed playing playoff games at the "Big O" and as of 2004 play one regular season game at the larger venue. These matches have been well attended. Prior to every Sunday home game, the club plays "Sunday Bloody Sunday" over the PA system in tribute to the unintended role U2 played in saving the franchise.
