Historical Moments:

2007: Despite a long scoreless streak to start the team's history, Toronto FC quickly began to establish itself as a solid soccer club and organization with beyond powerful fan support. As proof of this, the club's first win on May 12 at BMO Field saw Danny Dichio score in the 24th minute, sending the sellout crowd - the first of many - into ecstasy, tossing plastic soccer shaped seat cushions onto the field in celebration. The 3-1 win over Chicago was preceded by a 1-0 win over the eventual champions Houston Dynamo. Though TFC would slip to the cellar of MLS with an expansion-like record of 6-17-7, the club built a solid foundation as the first Canadian team in MLS and looked toward a bright future.

In their second season Toronto F.C. looked to moving a step forward as they hosted the MLS All-Star Game. However, the steps Toronto F.C. took were more like baby steps as they again were stuck in last place in the Eastern Conference as they posted a record of 9-13-8. However, the stands at BMO Field were packed on a regular basis as Toronto F.C. continued to enjoy an enthusiastic fan base.

2009: Hoping to take the next step up, Toronto had a difficult time, winning only once in their first five games and only winning consecutive games twice. Their inability to string winning streaks was their undoing as they finished out of the playoffs again at 10-11-9, missing out on the last day.

2010: Toronto FC would again have difficulty getting out of the gate, losing four of their first six games and could not keep up the pace with the rest of the league. At seasons end, the Reds watched the playoffs from home for the fourth straight year at 9-13-8.

2011: Continuing to attempt to get into the playoffs, Toronto FC continued to struggle, winning only two of their first twenty games as they could not get anything going in the season. A four game losing streak in July ensured the club a spot at home during the playoffs yet again with a record of 6-13-15, next to last in the East.

Once again, Toronto struggled badly throughout the season including losing their first nine to start the year on the way to an awful 5-21-8 record. What must have made the season more disappointing for TFC was the fact that Vancouver Whitecaps became the first Canadian playoff team, six years after Toronto's inaugural season.

2013: Toronto FC would once again struggle badly out of the gate, winning one of their first twelve matches and two oft heir first twenty to finish in ninth place in the East at 6-17-11.
