Toronto FC is reshaping its' look in 2011. Remaining the same this season will be the most exciting soccer atmosphere in Major League Soccer.
While the playoffs eluded the club in 2010, Toronto FC did host the MLS Cup Final game, played for the first time outside the United States.
The Reds also showed success on the new pitch at BMO Field, winning the Nutrilite Canadian Championship for the second year in a row. As a result, Toronto FC advanced to the Group Stage of CONCACAF Champions League action for the first time in club history. In Group Stage action, Toronto FC produced one of the best performances in club history, beating storied Mexican side Cruz Azul 2-1.
Regardless, Toronto FC is nowhere near settling on any of the successes over the last four seasons, and have kick-started a search to find the best faces to move the club forward this offseason. The club has reached an agreement with Jurgen Klinsmann, one of the most respected names throughout The Beautiful Game - as a consultant to help reorganize its' soccer infractructure immediately for 2011.
"I think he's really intrigued by what this franchise can be in this market becuse this community is so into the game," said Tom Anselmi, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer for Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. "And for a European that played at the highest levels, has won it all, done everything, living in North America for the last 15 years, what he's seeing in Toronto is probably as close as it gets to the European experience, so I think that really intrigues him."
