The 2016 Toronto FC season was the 10th season in club history. Toronto FC finished 3rd and qualified for the playoffs for the second consecutive season. By defeating the Philadelphia Union 3–1 in the Eastern Conference Knockout Round, the club earned their first ever playoff victory, and by defeating New York City FC 7–0 on aggregate, they reached their first ever Eastern Conference Final against their Canadian rivals Montreal Impact. The club set a BMO Field attendance record of about 36,000 for the second leg of the Conference Final as the club was able to use temporary seats in the south end that were originally installed for the 104th Grey Cup. Montreal won the first leg of the Conference Championship, 3–2 at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal on November 22. Toronto later beat Montreal 5–2 in extra time in the return leg at BMO Field in Toronto on November 30, winning on an aggregated score of 7–5, making Toronto FC the first Canadian team to compete in an MLS Cup Final. On December 10, Toronto lost the final at BMO Field in front of another record-breaking 36,045 fans, to the Seattle Sounders 5–4 on penalties following a goalless draw after extra time.

Background[edit]

During the 2015 season, Toronto FC finished sixth out of ten teams in the Eastern Conference. They qualified for the playoffs for the first time, losing 3–0 in the knockout round to the Montreal Impact.

Notes:
  1. ^
    CONCACAF Champions League
    Selection Procedure
    • Four US-based teams qualify for the 2018 CONCACAF Champions League:
      1. The winner of the MLS Cup 2016 (Seattle Sounders FC);
      2. The winner of the Supporters' Shield (FC Dallas);
      3. The regular season conference champion that did not win the Supporters Shield (New York Red Bulls);
      4. The winner of the 2016 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup (FC Dallas; already qualified, so berth passes to Colorado Rapids)
      Should a team qualify through more than one method, or should a team from Canada occupy any MLS qualifying place, the next best US team in the overall table would take its place.
      One Canada-based team qualifies for the Champions League (NOTE: Canadian teams cannot qualify through MLS):
      1. The winner of the 2016 and 2017 Canadian Championship (Toronto FC)
