Boots on cobblestone march to the beat of three drums. A chorus of supporters stomp toward the field of battle where the local team—Toronto FC—await their destiny. A new season begins, last year’s finals loss long forgotten. The supporters chant and clap in unison as they march. All for one, their collective energy is electric. Drumrolls set hearts ablaze while eager hands wave flags and flares in the air. The sea of red is united. The walk from Liberty Village is endless, but it will only take ninety minutes to decide their fate.
The 2020 Home Opener is against New York City FC on Saturday, March 7 at 5:00 p.m.
Tickets are available on Ticketmaster as well as on second-hand sites like StubHub, but if you like to roll the dice, you can get tickets from scalpers outside the field.
If you’re using public transit, take the GO train to the Exhibition stop, which is right beside BMO Field. Parking is available in the Exhibition grounds, as well as on the south side of Lakeshore in the Ontario Place/Budweiser Stage parking lot. Or you can park at Liberty Village and march to the match!
If you want to experience the famous march to the match, make sure to be in Liberty Village by 3:30 pm. The local bars will be packed full of people in red, getting tuned before the match. Go to Brazen Head Pub by 4:15pm to be a part of this unique soccer tradition!
Lastly, if you’re tuning in from home you can catch the game on TSN.
A new season means new possibilities, and the dominant Reds are hungry for redemption.
Let’s Go You Reds!
