Toronto FC's 2016 Major League Soccer Schedule

The club has learned its schedule for the upcoming season, including what help it will get from the league regarding international breaks.

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Last year Toronto FC started their season with seven games on the road, this year as part of the second phase of renovations to BMO Field they are going one better. Toronto will open the season with eight games on the road, culminating with a match in Portland against the MLS Cup defending champions Portland Timbers.

During that time they will kick off the season with a trip to New York, playing the Supporter's Shield winning New York Red Bulls and New York City FC in both club's home openers on March 6 and 13. They will also get an early chance at revenge against their rival Montreal Impact on April 23 at Saputo Stadium.

Toronto FC's home opener will be played on May 7 against the talented FC Dallas, but this year they will get to stay at home. Most of May, a stretch of four games including their first meeting of the year against the Vancouver Whitecaps, will be played at home.

However, June will be the most interesting month of the season for the club for multiple reasons. For one, it is when they will presumably be without all three designated players for some length of time. The league is taking a break for the group stage of the Copa America Centenario, which is good news, but Toronto will likely not have Sebastian Giovinco for the entire month as he joins Italy for Euro 2016.

It is also when the CFL's Toronto Argonauts will start their 2016 Canadian Football League season, with the potential for a preseason game to be played during that Copa America break. Toronto FC supporters will be watching this develop carefully as they wait to see what effect it has on their home field.

Once again, starting the season on the road means Toronto has a long home stand at the end of season. The club will play six of their final eight games of the season at home, culminating with their final game of the season which will be played October 23 against Chicago Fire.
