Toronto FC 2012 Schedule Leaked!

First chance to see this at BMO in 2012?  Looks like that will be March 24th when the Reds host the San Jose Earthquakes.

The MLS schedule is set to come out on the 5th with an official league announcement but Canadian Soccer News have received a leaked copy of it which they posted this evening. The schedule includes all of Toronto FC's MLS, Voyageurs Cup, and potential CCL match dates.

The highlights of the schedule include a pair of trips to Montreal, hosting the Whitecaps at BMO, Dwayne De Rosario coming back to Toronto on May 5th, as well as starting the season on the road in Seattle on March 17th. Ideally, and surprisingly sensibly, that first game comes after the second leg of the CCL quarter final, allowing the team maximum rest before the crucial game, presumably L.A will be given the same courtesy. Toronto fans will not get the chance to see the Montreal Impact at BMO Field until very late in the season as their only visit this season is set to take place on October 20th. The first "401 Derby" will take place on April 7th as was reported by CSN a couple of weeks ago so fans should start planning their long weekend away in Montreal!

Another point of note in this years schedule is that the Trillium Cup will be played over three legs with the Columbus Crew hosting the final two matches with Toronto hosting the first match on March 31st. It will be interesting to see what the clubs do with that mini-tournament considering that it would now be a bit unfair with Columbus holding a home field advantage this year. Presumably Toronto will then host Columbus twice next year but the unbalanced schedule may spell the end of the Trillium Cup as a worthwhile competition.

We will have plenty more reaction to the schedule in the coming days but for now the list from CSN is after the jump.
