TORONTO, Canada—Toronto FC’s 2017 team just continues to rack up the accolades.
On Thursday evening, MLSsoccer.com’s podcast Extratime announced that TFC’s treble-winning side has been voted as the greatest MLS team of all-time. The Reds beat out D.C. United’s 1997 squad to emerge as champions of the 32-team bracket.
Extratime hosts’ votes counted for 80 per cent of the outcome of each matchup, with fan votes on their Twitter account deciding the remaining 20 per cent.
Led by designated players Sebastian Giovinco, Jozy Altidore, and captain Michael Bradley, the Reds became the first Canadian team to win the Supporters Shield, setting a league-record (at the time) for points in a season (69). They’d go on to capture the club’s first (and only) MLS Cup, defeating the Seattle Sounders 2-0 at BMO Field, becoming the first MLS team to complete a domestic treble.
What a time that was. You can find the full 2017 team roster here. For what it’s worth, only nine of the 30-man roster is still with the club.
