Toronto Football Club
The only team in town really. It has “Toronto” and “Football Club” in the title, so pretty safe. They need to win a few more though.
Catch a game, seriously. The atmosphere is great — especially the walk to the stadium at BMO Field as fans pass under the Exhibition GO train station and bang the walls.
Check out this site’s Booze section for some pubs where the fans hang out. Not a complete list, still trying to get updates.
Also, four lads are having a bit of a giggle on their Under The Cosh website and podcast.
DISCLAIMER: The term that Brits invented — “football” — on this site refers to the beautiful game. Not the one in North America where they wear helmets, throw an egg-shaped ball to each other and run two feet before the game stops for cheerleaders.
The Toronto HQ of Liverpool, Everton, Sunderland and Crystal Palace.
If you’re a Manchester City fan you can connect with like-minded fans of the football club.
Dog and Bear
Thanks to Lee Marshall, PR and Supporter Liaison Manager at Newcastle United, for telling me that the Dog and Bear is the HQ for their fans in Toronto. It’s also the interim pub for West Ham fans (but they are looking for a more permanent HQ.) (p.s. My browser blocked the website as containing malware, so proceed at your own risk. Here’s an alternative link.)
Midtown Gastro Hub
The HQ for Arsenal Canada. Are you gooner go there?
Queen and Beaver
Another pub for Manchester United fans to meet and hug their mates — Arsenal fans — who also come here. Fun times!
O’Grady’s Tap & Grill
We were tipped off that, “There is a significant collection of Manchester United fans there. The guy running it is in contact with the official supporters liasion on United. They are always open for United games.”
Liverpool have a strong following here.
The Football Factory
A bar that says on its website, “We will open for matches that are outside our normal hours of operation, if there is interest.” Nice! That’s taking one for the team. (See what I did there?). Lots of Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool fans here.
Now when you tell the missus you’re “at the office” you’re being honest. You can also meet Newcastle United fans here too.
The Old Laurel
The HQ for Aston Villa fans. Poor sods.
The Spurs Canada Toronto chapter watch all the Tottenham Hotspur games here, including Champions League.
Here’s where the Toronto Chelsea supporters congregate as the official HQ.
As you can see, this list is by no means complete. If you know of any other fan pubs in Toronto please contact me and let me know so I can add them to the list.
