Get up to speed on Toronto fC
What you need to know to build your fan cred.
The big names
Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore are among the best scorers in MLS, but you should know a few more names. Team captain Michael Bradley, goalkeeper Clint Irwin and “King of Assists” Victor Vasquez are some players to keep an eye out for.
At BMO Field, the loudest and most animated crowd occupies sections 112 through 118. They’re mainly part of the Red Patch Boys, Toronto FC’s largest fan club. They never sit down during games as they chant various tunes praising the team. Marching In and Dichio 24 are among the most popular chants.
At 10 years old, Toronto FC is relatively young. The team has won the Canadian Championship six times but didn’t create a strong impression in MLS until last year. They had their most successful postseason to date but fell to the Seattle Sounders FC in the Finals.
