Toronto FC Stats & History
MLS announced Toronto would receive an MLS team in 2005. Toronto FC played its first season in 2007 and was the first-ever Canadian team in MLS. They finished in last place in the league in their inaugural season but had enthusiastic fan support.
Toronto once again finished at the bottom of the Eastern Conference in 2008 but managed to make the final of the Canadian Championship. In 2009, Toronto was one point away from making the playoffs but lost their final match of the season. They added their first Voyageurs’ Cup to the Toronto FC team stats, though.
Following their Canadian Championship win, Toronto played in the CONCACAF Champions League for the first time. The Reds would go on to win the next three Voyageurs’ Cups and made the semifinals of the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champions League. However, their MLS struggles continued and they missed out on the playoffs in their first eight seasons in the league.
Toronto signed Italian national team forward Sebastian Giovinco and American international striker Jozy Altidore in 2015. Those signings changed the course of the franchise and set them up for years to come. In 2015, Giovinco won the first MLS MVP award and Golden Boot in the Toronto Football Club team stats. With a sixth-place finish in the East, TFC qualified for the playoffs for the first time.

TFC followed up its impressive 2015 campaign with a third-place finish in the East in 2016. They won the Canadian Championship and made it to their first MLS Cup final. However, they lost 5-4 to the Seattle Sounders on penalties, after a scoreless draw. The 2017 season is by far the best in TFC history. They won the first-ever MLS domestic treble by winning the MLS Cup, Voyageurs’ Cup, and the MLS Supporters’ Shield. In 2018, the Reds missed out on the playoffs but won another Canadian Championship and were runners-up in the CONCACAF Champions League. In 2019, Toronto qualified for their third MLS Cup final but fell 3-1 to the Seattle Sounders.
Toronto’s most recent trophy was the 2020 Voyageurs’ Cup. Through 22 matches in the 2022 MLS season, Toronto was in a disappointing 13th place in the Eastern Conference. The MLS odds still priced them as +2500 dark horses to win the title this season. Betting advice has often recommended betting against TFC when they play on the road in 2022. They were winless in their first 10 road matches of the season.
