The United Soccer League (USL) announced today that, based upon updated cross-border public health legislation enacted on July 5 by the Canadian government, USL League One team Toronto FC II will return to Canada for the first time this season and once again host home matches at BMO Training Ground in Toronto, beginning with its next home match on July 30 against Greenville Triumph SC.
The USL and Toronto FC II made the decision in consideration of the extraordinary efforts the team took in order to participate in the 2021 USL League One season, which included temporary stints in Arizona and Florida that required the team's staff members and young players to spend time away from their home market.
USL clubs and match officials traveling to Canada will be required to adhere to the standard of public health protocols held for all individuals entering the country. Fully vaccinated players and staff are not required to self-isolate upon entering Canada at this time. Protocols include, but are not limited to, molecular COVID-19 testing prior to travel and upon arrival in Canada.
TFC II will be allowed to have media members at its home matches at BMO Training Ground in accordance with local and national health and safety protocols. The team currently sits in sixth place in League One with 19 points and a record of 5-6-4.
