Toronto FC, who joined the MLS in 2007, were the first Canadian team to join the league. The team's owner is Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment - the same company that owns the NBA's Toronto Raptors, the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs, and their affiliate teams. The team reached a major milestone in 2015. Having failed to make a single playoff appearance since 2007, Toronto FC finished sixth in the Eastern Conference in 2015 and managed to clinch a spot in the postseason. The team then got shutout 3-0 by rivals Montreal Impact in the knockout round. Striker Sebastian Giovinco was the MLS Golden Boot recipient that season, with 22 goals and 16 assists.
Toronto improved further in 2016, finishing third in the Eastern Conference and fifth overall before progressing to the MLS Cup final for the first time in their history. Sadly for Toronto fans, their side lost on penalties to Seattle Sounders.
Toronto only lost nine times in the regular season in 2016, only three of which occurring at home where they boasted of an 8-3-6 record. The Canadian outfit is strong in attack, solid in defense and ended the 2016 campaign with a +12 goal differential which was the third best in the MLS.

Standing at 5'4", Italian striker Sebastian Giovinco, is considerably short in stature for an MLS player. He may be small in size, but he is a true force to be reckoned with, especially from free kicks.
With 22 goals and 16 assists in his debut season with Toronto FC, Giovinco has a very good chance of becoming the all-time leading scorer of the franchise.
In his second season with Toronto, Giovinco scored another 17 goals and created 15 assists for teammates during regular season before scoring four more goals and making four assists during the playoffs.
It is fair to say that the Toronto team's success revolves around Giovinco. The opposition's chances of winning becomes much higher when the Atomic Ant is out of the lineup.
