History of the Toronto FC
Toronto FC is one of the most successful teams in Major League Soccer (MLS). The team was founded in 2006 and has been a part of MLS ever since. Toronto FC has made several deep runs into the playoffs, including two consecutive appearances in the MLS Cup Finals from 2016 to 2017. During that time, they won their first-ever Supporters’ Shield trophy for having the best regular season record among all teams.
The club also boasts an impressive list of players who have represented them over their history, with some notable names such as Sebastian Giovinco, Jozy Altidore, and Michael Bradley. These three players were instrumental to Toronto's success during those years. They provided memorable moments like Giovinco's bicycle kick goal against New York City FC or Altidore scoring a hat-trick against Montreal Impact in 2015.
In addition to individual successes on-field performances by its players, Toronto Fc also achieved great things of it too, becoming just one Canadian team out of three total clubs (Montreal Impact & Vancouver Whitecaps) competing within North America’s top soccer league - something no other Canadian side had done before them when they joined back in 2007. Their achievements throughout this period cemented themselves among Canada’s elite sports franchises. They put them firmly on track towards international recognition – achieved through various CONCACAF Champions League appearances between 2009 & 2018, where they reached the quarterfinals stage twice consecutively between the 2011-2012 seasons. All these factors combined make up why we consider Toronto Fc one of many iconic ‘soccer cities' worldwide today!

Toronto FC – Toronto FC is one of the most celebrated teams in Major League Soccer (MLS). The team has a long and storied history, with fans worldwide cheering them on. But many don't know that Toronto FC's nickname - "The Reds" - has an interesting origin story.
The name was chosen to honor two former Canadian international soccer players: Bob Lenarduzzi and Dale Mitchell. Both men played for Canada at the 1986 FIFA World Cup, wearing red uniforms as part of their national colors. When Toronto FC was founded in 2007, it seemed only fitting to pay homage to these two greats by adopting "the Reds" as its official nickname.
However, there are other theories about why this particular color was chosen for Toronto FC's identity; some believe it may have been inspired by Liverpool Fc’s famous “Reds” moniker or a local firefighting unit that also used red uniforms! Whatever its origins, though, there can be no doubt that “the Reds” had become synonymous with success over time – after all, who could forget when they won MLS Cup 2017?
Whatever your opinion on how The Reds got their name might be — we can all agree that this team will always remain close to our hearts!
