Toronto FC is a Canadian professional soccer club located in Toronto, and the first non-American team in Major League Soccer (MLS). The club's first regular season match was April 7, 2007 at Home Depot Center in Los Angeles, a 0-2 loss to Chivas USA. Although they did not make the playoffs, Toronto FC was a financial success in its inaugural season, selling out every home game in the 20,522-seat BMO Field and capturing unprecedented media attention.

History

Naming

The name of the club was officially announced on May 11, 2006 by the team's owner, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd. (MLSE).[1] The "FC" in the team's name is the conventional initialism for Football Club, but in official media and documents the team has only been referred to as Toronto FC, never Toronto Football Club. Larry Tannenbaum, chairman of MLSE, stated at the team name's unveiling that "I think the way we spell it is 'futbol'."[2] is the 131st day of the year (132nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd. ...


The announcement followed an online consultation in which the public was invited to vote on the name during a limited period. The voting options were "Toronto Nationals," "Inter Toronto," "Toronto Reds," "Toronto FC," and "Toronto Barons." MLSE's strategy in choosing "Toronto FC" following this process was based on two reasons. First, over 40 percent of the online vote supported this name in the consultation. Second, MLSE hoped that with this fairly generic name the new club would earn a more organic nickname from the Toronto fans rather than have one imposed from above. This has slowly happened over the course of the club's first season, with Toronto FC widely referred to simply by the initials "TFC," or the "Reds" (their home kit colour) including on the MLS website. Based on informal online polls that cannot be verified for accuracy and conducted during the run-up to the 2008 season on Toronto FC discussion forums, a minority of fans also refer to the club by the nickname the "Redcoats". The team colours are red, white and grey.

At the time of his hiring, Johnston claimed a "wonderful" assistant coach had already been hired while declining to divulge the person's identity.[6] This person was later revealed to be former U.S. National Team and Kansas City Wizards coach, Bob Gansler.

Players

Roster

In accordance with MLS policies, Toronto FC is restricted to an 18 man senior roster and a 10 man developmental roster. Like its American counterparts, the squad consists of both domestic and foreign players (though these domestic players are Canadian rather than American).


In 2007, the club was allowed thirteen international players, of which no more than eight could be non-Americans (8+5). Following former coach Mo Johnston complaints regarding the strict player constraints set by the league, MLS has relaxed these regulations for the 2008 season. Now, Toronto FC is allowed sixteen international players, of which no more than eleven can be non-Americans (11+5). This new measure is to compensate for the smaller talent pool in Canada, thus keeping the league competitive. In comparison, American teams are permitted up to eight international players (Canadian players fit into this category). Thus Toronto FC is required to field fewer domestic players than its American counterparts.[7]
