Toronto FC announced today that the club will make Florida its home base for the start of the Major League Soccer season.
The Reds will use the facilities at the Omni Resort at ChampionsGate in Orlando for training and, depending on the MLS schedule dates, could play their home matches in both Orlando and Tampa. The length of TFC’s stay in Florida will be contingent upon health and safety regulations as borders re-open in Canada.
“We are unable to make BMO Field in Toronto our home for the start of the MLS Season,” said TFC general manager Ali Curtis. “But we will continue to work with local and federal officials to monitor the situation back home and return as soon as possible.”
Details of the 2021 Major League Soccer schedule will be announced at a later date.
