Located at Exhibition Place in Toronto, BMO Field is Canada’s first-ever football-specific stadium, and is home to the country’s first MLS club, Toronto FC. It also plays host to the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, as well as staging music concerts. It cost $62.9m to build, and was funded by a public partnership between Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd. and three levels of government. The naming rights are owned by the Bank of Montreal, commonly branded as BMO.
Since opening in 2007, BMO Field has hosted several major events, the first of which was the 2007 FIFA Under-20 World Cup. It has also become the home venue for Canada’s national rugby team, as well as hosting various lacrosse and hockey matches.
The stadium underwent a series of major renovations from 2014 to 2016, with an upper deck added to the east grandstand, a roof over the seating areas and a lengthened field all part of the upgrade.
The club’s official supporters’ groups include the Red Patch Boys, Kings in the North, Original 109, U-Sector, and Tribal Rhythm Nation. Toronto FC’s rivals include SC Montreal, Vancouver Whitecaps and Columbus Crew SC.
Season tickets, mobile ticketing, premium seats, premium suites and group tickets can be found here.
