Toronto heads down to Orlando, Florida at the end of this week to kick off the second stage off their preseason schedule. The Walt Disney Pro Soccer Classic will be fans first chance to check out the team in action.
Toronto FC is about to wrap up the first leg of their training camp at the KIA training ground and move on to the second phase where things should get a bit more serious. While at the Downsview facility TFC has to be careful not to push certain players too hard on the turf surface, but once they hit Florida it should be all systems go for players that are not dealing with injuries.
Heading down to Orlando also means the start of the friendly schedule. There is a good chance that Toronto FC will still add more matches to their preseason schedule with friendlies against local Florida college sides a real possibility, as are additional friendlies against MLS teams that are down there for the same event.
For now we know that Toronto FC will play in the Walt Disney Pro Soccer Classic which will guarantee them at least three matches with the chance of a fourth should they finish top two in their group. Toronto will contest a group with the Columbus Crew, Philadelphia Union and Orlando City SC. The other group will be the Montreal Impact, Sporting Kansas City, DC United, and the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
We will add viewing details as they become available but for now we know that MLSsoccer will be live streaming all the games from the event meaning TFC fans will finally get the chance to see the team in action again. The bad news is we might end up having to put up with Simon Borg on the call again...
