Located at Exhibition Place in Toronto, BMO Field is Canada’s first soccer-specific stadium and plays home to Canada’s National soccer team, as well as Toronto FC, Canada’s first Major League Soccer team. It was built at a cost of $62.9 million and funded by a unique public partnership between three levels of government and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment LTD.
In its inaugural summer, BMO Field (known to FIFA as Canada’s National Soccer Stadium) hosted over 260,000 fans during 12 games as the main venue for the FIFA U-20 World Cup. On September 7th, 2007, Phil Collins and Genesis took the stage in front of a capacity crowd of more than 28,000 fans.
Since 2007, BMO Field has welcomed over a million fans and has hosted a multitude of events including the MLS Cup in 2010, the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, and International Rugby and Lacrosse games.
