Ranked fifth in the MLS Eastern Conference standings, the Reds enter Saturday’s match in Florida fresh from recording back-to-back wins against New England Revolution and Simcoe County Rovers in MLS and Canadian Championship action over the past week. TFC hold an 8W-8L-3T all-time record through their first 19 meetings with the Lions across ten seasons.


Toronto FC’s 2024 MLS campaign continues with their sixth road match of the MLS regular season and their first matchup of the season against Orlando City SC this Saturday evening. Following their opening five away games in 2024, the Reds hold a 51W-159L-69T all-time record (222 points) in MLS regular season matches played on the road.



Toronto FC visit 2015 MLS expansion club Orlando City SC for the 20th encounter in the all-time series between the two clubs. TFC hold an 8W-8L-3T record through their first 19 meetings with the Lions. The two Eastern Conference clubs have previously faced off at Inter&Co Stadium (formerly Exploria Stadium and Orlando City Stadium) on seven occasions, with the Reds winning a pair of matches and the hosts winning five. TFC will be looking for their first road victory against the Lions since recording a 2-0 victory, courtesy of goals from Jonathan Osorio and Jay Chapman, at Exploria Stadium on May 4, 2019.


Toronto FC recorded a dominant 5 – 0 victory against Simcoe County Rovers of League1 Ontario on Wednesday evening to progress into the 2024 TELUS Canadian Championship Quarter-Finals. The Reds enjoyed a first-half blitz in the preliminary round match with goals from Prince Owusu, Cassius Mailula, Kevin Long and Jonathan Osorio in the opening 45 minutes before Tyrese Spicer added the fifth and final goal in front of the BMO Field faithful. With the victory, TFC booked their place in the quarter-finals and will take on the winner of HFX Wanderers FC (Canadian Premier League) and CS Saint-Laurent (Ligue1 Québec) in a two-match home and away series in May.



Club captain Jonathan Osorio made his 350th appearance for Toronto FC (across all competitions) on Wednesday evening, becoming the first player in club history to reach the historic milestone. The midfielder made his 29th Canadian Championship appearance and has now featured in the tournament in eleven different seasons, tying former Red Ashtone Morgan and trailing only Vancouver Whitecaps’ Russell Teibert (12 seasons) in the tournament’s all-time history. Osorio also leads the competition’s all-time goalscoring charts and added to his Canadian Championship tally when he volleyed home to finish a slick passing sequence to score his eighth goal for TFC in the competition.



Toronto FC goalkeeper Sean Johnson was named to the Major League Soccer (MLS) Team of the Matchday 10 as a starter following his performance against New England Revolution last weekend. The Lilburn, Georgia native earned his third selection of the campaign after registering five saves to record a joint league-leading third clean sheet, including a spectacular save to deny Giacomo Vrioni in the 51st minute. In his 15-year MLS career, Johnson has now recorded 99 career clean sheets and the latest MLS Team of the Matchday selection is Johnson’s 20th of his MLS career. In total, Toronto FC have now earned nine MLS Team of the Matchday honours during the 2024 MLS season – Sean Johnson (3), Lorenzo Insigne (2), Deybi Flores (1), Tyrese Spicer (1), Federico Bernardeschi (1) and Prince Owusu (1).


A trio of Reds have previously suited up for the Lions in their respective MLS careers. Richie Laryea was selected seventh overall by Orlando City in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft and made 21 appearances across three seasons (2016 – 2018) for the Lions before joining the Reds as a free agent on March 21, 2019. Shane O’Neill returned to MLS to join Orlando City in June 2018 and went on to make 26 combined appearances across two seasons (2018, 2019) for the Lions. Greg Ranjitsingh joined Orlando in December 2018 and made two appearances between the sticks during the 2019 MLS regular season. On the other side, Luca Petrasso, a TFC Academy product, came through the youth ranks and made 27 appearances for the Reds since signing as a Homegrown Player in January 2022. The defender joined Orlando City in November 2022 and made 14 appearances for the Lions before joining Italian Serie C club Triestina on loan in January 2024.


Toronto FC’s newest signing, Derrick Etienne Jr., could make his club debut in Orlando on Saturday. Etienne joined TFC earlier in the week after representing four Eastern Conference clubs and lifting the Supporters’ Shield (New York Red Bulls, 2018), MLS Cup (Columbus Crew, 2020) and Campeones Cup (Columbus Crew, 2021) across his eight-year Major League Soccer career.
