MLS 101: BMO Field
Toronto FC - BMO Field
One of MLS’ newest soccer-specific venues, BMO Field is the home of Toronto FC as well as Canada’s national teams. Opened in 2007, BMO Field is located in downtown Toronto and saw over 500,000 fans enter through its gates in its first season of operation. In addition to hosting the 2010 MLS Cup, Canada’s first soccer-specific stadium was also the main venue for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup. With over 260,000 fans watching 12 games, the U-20 World Cup was the third most-watched sporting event in the world that year. BMO Field is owned by the city of Toronto, and also features a winter bubble which supports year-round usage by community, youth and adult soccer leagues.
