Toronto FC are on pace for their worst season in franchise history

Toronto FC are perhaps the highest-spending club in MLS, but results-wise they’ve been the worst.

TORONTO, Canada—Following Tuesday night’s dramatic 1-0 loss to Inter Miami CF, Toronto FC are officially on pace for their worst season in franchise history.

In 2012, Toronto notched a franchise-low 23 points from 34 matches, good enough for 0.68 points per game. This season, however, they have picked up just 15 points from 24 games, or in other words, 0.63 points per game.

The team has not won a match since July 24, 2021 — a 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire. They’re winless in their last nine outings and have lost six-straight games. In fact, since interim head coach Javier Perez was appointed head coach for the remainder of the season following a 2-2 draw to New York City FC on August 7, the team has lost every game.

Toronto has conceded an MLS-high 50 goals against, 10 more than anyone other team in the league. They’ve scored just 26 of their own, which ranks 10th out of 14 teams in the Eastern Conference.

All of this to say, Toronto FC are historically bad this season, and it’s possible supporters have started to show their displeasure, as just 7,970 fans attended Tuesday night’s match against Miami — the lowest showing since the team returned to BMO Field earlier this summer.

TFC General Manager Ali Curtis stated that this past offseason would be one like no other; well, it’s looking like this upcoming offseason will be in a calibre of its own. Toronto FC are perhaps the highest-spending club in MLS, but results-wise they’ve been the worst.

Tough questions will have to be asked and tough decisions will have to be made. There are still 10 MLS matches before now and then — and hopefully a Canadian Championship run — however, one can’t help to look ahead with this season essentially in the books.

Hang in there, TFC fans. We’re almost there.
