TFC playoffs

TFC builds the hype for first ever home playoff match

Toronto FC will host its first ever home playoff game tonight, and the team is building up the hype with a video that captures their road to playoffs along with a number of pre-game celebrations. Major League Soccer fans have waited a long time for this moment, and you can bet that they will voraciously cheer on the Reds as they take on the Philadelphia Union in this one-and-done battle.

The festivities start with a march from the Brazen Head to BMO Field at 5:30 p.m., where a sea of red-adorned fans will get into the playoff spirit prior to match time. Even if you don't have tickets, you can show your team pride during this collective show of support.

Upon arrival at the stadium, the team is hosting pre-game party and concert featuring the Trews before a second march to the stadium is planned for all those who didn't make the first one. The festivities will wrap at 7 p.m. when ticket-holders will head to their seats for the big match.

Game time is 7:30 p.m. It's been 10 years since the TFC landed in Toronto, and now's their biggest chance to leave a mark. Check out the video below to get hyped up for the occasion.
