Toronto FC announced Friday that the club will make Florida its home base for the start of the Major League Soccer season.
The Reds will use the facilities at the Omni Resort at ChampionsGate in Orlando for training and, depending on the MLS schedule dates, could play their home matches in both Orlando and Tampa.
The length of TFC’s stay in Florida will be contingent upon health and safety regulations as borders re-open in Canada.
“We are unable to make BMO Field in Toronto our home for the start of the MLS season,” Toronto FC general manager Ali Curtis said. “But we will continue to work with local and federal officials to monitor the situation back home and return as soon as possible.”
Former Red Bulls head coach Chris Armas is Toronto’s new boss.
Details of the 2021 MLS schedule will be announced at a later date.
