Soccer Celebration and TFC on the Road
Come down to BMO Field two hours before the game and kick off the day with Soccer Celebration. It is the perfect way to warm up for a Toronto FC game. The pre-game street party features many interactive events for TFC fans of all ages. Test your soccer skills, enjoy live music and giveaways and mingle with other fans. We supply the activities, you supply the passion!
TFC on the Road powered by Rogers also help to add a lot to the atmosphere and pre-game hype. Their variety of interactive games and promotions allow you to challenge your friends to a game of soccer on turf just like the pros. It's definitely worth coming early for.
The Carlsberg Patio
Join in on the cheering and celebrating with fellow beer-loving TFC fans at BMO Field's Carlsberg Patio. The perfect combination for TFC fans over 19 to celebrate - beer and football! The section is directly behind the net on the North end of the field. Heads up for a fast moving ball ... and remember, all balls MUST be returned to the field. The DJ will get the music going pre and post-game so feel free to get dancing!
Please welcome the introduction of Culture Days here at BMO Field. Throughout each season we will be selecting specific games to highlight and celebrate the different cultures of Toronto! Everything from the food to the music to the giveaways will be themed in celebration! Keep checking the website as dates are confirmed and get down early to be part of the party!
The demand for Toronto FC products has been overwhelming, which is why BMO Field has numerous merchandise stands on the upper and lower concourses. These stands provide the opportunity for TFC fans to purchase jerseys, hats, bags, t-shirts, sweaters, and many more Toronto FC products. Show your pride and soccer spirit with authentic TFC gear.
BMO Field caters to the various tastes of Toronto FC fans from hot dogs to sushi. Concessions are situated throughout the stadium to supply you with cold drinks and hot food. Specialty eats are also available - try the Chip Buddy (a sandwich of fries ... not kidding!), corn-on-the-cob, Taco FC and more. BMO Field can satisfy your cravings!
Promos and Prizing!
Throughout the match, giveaways and prizes will be given to lucky TFC fans. Toronto FC corporate partners are excited to be involved in game day and there are a lot of chances for you to win.
Ari Xenarios returns for his sixth season as the Voice of Toronto FC. Over the years, Ari has made a name for himself as a PA Announcer for Humber College, U of T and Team Canada Basketball. Some of his announcing highlights include the 2008 MLS Allstar game, TFC vs. Real Madrid, Raptors vs. Celtics game and the 2010 MLS Cup. "My favorite Toronto FC memory dates back to my first game behind the mic. I was instructed that during the player introductions, I was only to say first names as the crowd would take care of the rest. Hearing 18,000 plus fans yell the players' last name gave me chills, and really set the tone for what I was to expect from the BMO Field faithful in the years to come."
BMO Field's Guardian
The term "eyes like a hawk" has taken on a whole new meaning at BMO Field. Perched high above sits TFC's guardian - Bitchy (as named by you the fans) the hawk. Enlisted to stand guard on match days, Bitchy is trained to protect the BMO Field faithful from…of all things ... seagulls!
The proximity to Lake Ontario and of course all the fine food around BMO Field makes the stadium a haven for gulls. The pesky birds have caused quite the nuisance for players, fans and of course the clean up staff.
Enter Parabuteo unicinctus, or as she is more commonly known - Bitchy the Harris Hawk. This bird of prey has a 1.2 metre wingspan and strikes fear in the eyes of seagulls (as well as rabbits, rodents, lizards and possibly visiting teams). She will be watching over us at all TFC home games.
