For context, the Rochester Rhinos are taking a temporary hiatus this year, which has caused some trouble in terms of their potential future control of the downtown venue, due to the terms of the agreement with the city, who own the stadium.
The matches will pit TFC II as hosts against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, Indy Eleven, Nashville SC, and Bethlehem Steel FC and should provide a nice little road-trip for any Toronto fans wishing to make the trek.
Said Toronto FC Club President Bill Manning, in a release by the USL, “We are happy that we can give the fans four USL games to attend this season as the Rhinos prepare for their return to action in 2019.”
