The 2015 Toronto FC season was the ninth season in club history. On October 14, the team qualified for the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.[1] The club began the season with a seven match road trip due to ongoing renovations at BMO Field. Their first home game was played May 10 against the Houston Dynamo, more than two months into the season.

Background[edit]

During the 2014 season, Toronto FC finished seventh out of ten teams in the Eastern Conference.

On 12 July 2015, Giovinco achieved Toronto FC's first ever hat-trick in MLS play against New York City FC in a 4–4 draw at Yankee Stadium, and set up the fourth goal during the match, also missing a penalty. It was also the third fastest hat trick scored in the league's history at 9 minutes.[2] Following the match, he received the player of the week award for the third time in the 2015 MLS season.[3]
