Soccer: Toronto FC fined by Soccer Canada for brawl in the stands


TORONTO – The Canada Soccer Disciplinary Committee has fined Toronto FC an undisclosed amount for inappropriate spectator behavior during a Canadian Soccer Championship game against CF Montreal on May 9 at BMO Field.

Soccer Canada said the team was unable to meet the safety and security standards required for the game.

The TFC banned for life four fans involved in arguments in the stands during the 2-1 loss against CF Montreal.

After the same match, TFC midfielder Mark-Anthony Kaye had to be restrained, when he wanted to attack spectators who insulted him. In a video posted on social media, a supporter could even be seen throwing a megaphone in Kaye’s direction.

In response to the incidents, CF Montreal closed the section of Saputo Stadium reserved for fans of the opposing team during the May 13 game against TFC.

CF Montreal also won this game, this time by a score of 2-0.
