TFC announces friendly against Defoe and Sunderland

Toronto FC will welcome former striker Jermaine Defoe and Sunderland of the English Premier League to BMO field on July 22nd for a friendly the club announced today. It will be the first time Defoe has played at the stadium since he was sold to Sunderland at the beginning of the year.

Other stars who might make an appearance from the English Premiership team are club captain John O'Shea, Connor Wickham and Jack Rodwell. So, it's a bloody big deal, or so they say.

Tickets will be available through a special pre-sale window for season ticket holders beginning Tuesday, June 9. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, June 17. For more details, check out the club's website.
